I read just about everything. Right now my YA favorites are Hunger Games and The Fault In Our Stars.
Both of these made my top 5 for last year. Every once in a while I go on a complete YA kick, and I'm not often disappointed as long as I stick with things that are getting good reviews on a large scale. I tried Sookie Stackhouse this year.
I didn't make it.
Ugh. I have a hard time with vampire anything ever since the dreaded Twilight series, and this to me was just as cheesy in a completely different way.
But as long as we're talking YA, I'm putting a plug in for my all time favorite book of life: Ender's Game. Movie is supposedly coming out this year and I couldn't be more excited. I doubt it will do it justice, but I think I've read the book about 50 times, so I'm pumped for the movie anyway. This is the book that made me everyone's favorite high school English teacher. I'm serious. I've turned probably 300 teenagers who once claimed to "hate reading" into book lovers with this book.
I'll have to check out Ender's Game. I'm always looking for something good to read.
I think I'm gonna try to reread some classics this fall too, from back when I was in high school.
Congrats on turning the teens into readers. The worst thing a person can say is "I don't read" to me. I think I'd rather hear you were visualizing ways to kill me or something. LOL
