CHASING A GOOD READ August 25, 2012

I write YA. I read YA.  Simple as that.  Well maybe not so simple.

 

Because I have been reading YA for so many years (way before TWILIGHT ), I’m very particular about what I pick up.  It has to be unique, and not another retelling of an overly familiar fairy tale or greek myth. When I come across something I can’t put down, with writing that sings, I want to shout about it from the rooftops – or maybe just provide a review on this blog.

 

Amazing YA I’ve reviewed so far:

 

INSURGENT - Veronica Roth

CITY OF LOST SOULS – Cassandra Clare

UNDER THE NEVER SKY – Veronica Rossi

PURE - Julianna Baggott

THIS IS NOT A TEST - Courtney Summers

TEN – Gretchen McNeil

SHADOW AND BONE – Leigh Bardugo

A YA Contemporary Mash-up (Sara Zarr’s SWEETHEARTS and Laurie Halse Anderson’s TWISTED)

THE FAULT IN OUR STARS – John Green

ALTERED – Jennifer Rush

CLOCKWORK PRINCESS - Cassandra Clare

    Just discovered your blog with the Mary Kole interview. Looks like we have a lot in common with reading – I’ve read Insurgent and City of Lost Souls, have Under The Never Sky on my nook to read and This Is Not A Test and Shadow and Bone on my to read list. Love your blog – I also write YA and just started a blog on WordPress – would love to hear what you think! http://www.teripolen.com
