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.

Review | To Sir Phillip, With Love by Julia Quinn

The first book to make it onto my best books I've read so far this year list was actually a surprise. Thanks to Bridgerton's massive success, Julia Quinn's name is everywhere these days. And I'm chuffed about the whole thing. That said, my Quinn reading up to this point has been sporadic at best. And I'd only read two novels in the actual Bridgerton series. So I decided to rectify that at the beginning of the year by starting with Eloise's story (the fifth in the series) because she is my uncontested favorite of the siblings. I had no idea what her story held, but I knew she would be a compelling lead. I also love the title and the role that letters play in the story.   Eloise Bridgerton is tired of everything. She is tired of the endless inane whirl of life among the ton. She is tired of being paraded around and forced to dance and converse with all the wrong men. But most of all she is tired of being suddenly and unexpectedly alone after her best friend Penelo

Retro Friday Review: And Both Were Young by Madeleine L'Engle

R etro Friday   is a weekly meme hosted here at Angieville and focuses on reviewing books from the past. This can be an old favorite, an under-the-radar book you think deserves more attention, something woefully out of print, etc. Everyone is welcome to join in at any time! I include roundups from participating bloggers in my post every week. I think this may have been the last Madeleine L'Engle book I read (for the first time) as a teenager. And for some reason it holds a sort of distinction in my head because of that fact. I, like most other readers I know who love her books, got in on the whole thing with A Wrinkle in Time , moving on to the other Murry and O'Keefe family books and then the Austin family series and so on from there. I must have been somewhere around ten or so when I first read the Time series and by the time I got through all the others and worked my way around to her standalones I was a bit older. Although one of my very favorite things about her body of y
