To all of you who commiserated with me and cheered me through my whining about YA reads:
Special thanks to Asher, Ivan, Tatiana, Alyssa, Kyle, April, Angie, Maja, Vickie, Ashley, Anna, Catie, Short Latte, Gina, Flannery, and Holly!
You all helped cheer me up, brightened my day, and inspired me to go out and read. I have determined that the first order of business in shaking the YA slump will be to read my copy of Daughter of the Forest, as there seems to be a general consensus that I will love it and it will solve all of my problems (well, maybe not all of them…it probably won’t get me a full time dream job). Next up, I plan to give This Is Not a Test, and Seraphina a go. I’ve heard great things about both of them, and am hoping they’ll make the cut. Though I also have Dead Reckoning and The Return Man at the moment, which means it’s going to be a Very Zombie June for me (and yes, I am now inspired to make A Very Zombie June logo out of the A Very Brady Christmas cover).
Anyway, I’ll be sprinkling these three in with some other adult and middle grade reads as I get back into the flow of things. With three gorgeous (and eerie) covers, of which I approve, how could I go wrong? I’ll also be trying any number of other books recommended, like Gary D. Schmidt, Unspoken, The Curiosities!
Go forth and read!
