This past weekend you may have been celebrating Easter, Passover, or just time off school or work. Maybe you hid eggs, or found them, or ate way too much candy. But, regardless of religious affiliation or work schedule, I hope you made time to consume those glorious neon glowing sugar coated marshmallow confectionery known as Peeps. Those adorable chicks are a staple of spring time snacking. Maybe you enjoyed a few peeps while relaxing with a good book. If you were paying attention in the YA Lit Twitter Sphere you may have noticed the hashtag #YAPeeps that was trending on April 3rd, but, in case you missed it, I’ve gathered some of my favorite #YAPeeps for you to enjoy.
The earliest tweet came from Epic Reads. It continued to be one of the most referenced books.
