I ♥ YA

Today I'm over at Chachic's Book Nook talking about young adult literature and why I read it. This is a regular feature Chachic runs, in which she invites other bloggers to come over and answer a few questions and then people can comment and leave recommendations on books they think that blogger would like based on her comments. Great, no? Do stop by and let me know why you read YA and what your favorites are.

  1. Great interview. I find it fascinating to find out why other people love YA so much, especially when it seems a lot of people have an aversion to it.

    You have read Saving Francesca though, havent you?

  2. Thanks, Carla! And I am sorry to say I haven't read SAVING FRANCESCA yet. The first Marchetta I read was JELLICOE ROAD and it blew me away so completely I was afraid to glom her other stuff in case it didn't live up. Then I read FINNIKIN and was so utterly underwhelmed it was depressing. But I've heard so many good things about FRANCESCA that I definitely need to give it a shot.

Bibliocrack Review | The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood

 Hi. Hey. Hello there. It's been a . . . well, you know what it's been. We're all still living this together. So I will simply skip to the fact that I couldn't not review this book here. Because reading it was something special. I knew nothing about Ali Hazelwood 's debut novel except that it involved women in STEM and that the cover made me smile. I decided to set it aside for myself as a reward. Work has been . . . punishing . . . for the last year, and I have been so exhausted every hour of every day. And so I determined to buy The Love Hypothesis  on release day knowing nothing about it. But when I went to the bookstore to get my copy, none were available. In fact, none were available anywhere for love nor money, in store or online. At first I was moderately disappointed. Then I told myself maybe it's not that great after all and I didn't necessarily need to feel this preemptive sense of loss. But it kept gnawing at me. The loss. And so I paused work an
