Hi there, fellow readers! Welcome to Day’s YA!

day's YA logo

Before we get down to business, I want to introduce myself and share a little bit about me. My name is Emily Day and I’m the Associate Manager + YA Specialist in Macmillan’s Library Marketing department. Prior to moving to NYC in 2017, I lived in Boston, where I worked as a bookseller/publishing intern/grad student combo while getting my Master of Arts degree in Children’s Literature. I spent 5 years in Brooklyn, but I now call sunny San Diego home.

I read YA almost exclusively, and I am so excited to use this space to share some of my favorites with you. Be on the lookout for posts from me (labeled “Day’s YA” and stamped with this logo), where I will share my candid reviews of upcoming YA titles from Wednesday Books, Flatiron Books, and Tor Teen.
