I've been reading YA books this week, despite being well past the YA age range! I've really been enjoying them though, the ones I have read are well written, thoughtful and funny. I wish I'd had books like this to read as a teenager.
I've been trying to think back to what I was reading during my teenage years. The only good teen author form those days, that comes to mind, is Judy Blume. I do remember my whole class being obsessed with Sweet Valley High and Point Horror but they aren't the kind of books that commented on life and normal teen experiences or made you think at all. On a side note I've been loving reading views of the new updated SVH books, featuring the perfect size four twins, what not size Zero??
In other news I have signed up for Weekly Geeks which looks like it will be lots of fun.
I'm also taking part in Becky's Book Club. During May we will be reading and talking about Life as we knew it by Susan Beth Pfeffer. Sounds like a lot of fun and if you want to take part go and sign up here.
