#YABkLove Day 24: Long-Running Series

What long-running series have you read and enjoyed? Something longer than just a trilogy or even just four. I rarely devote myself to long series, and for a time they were out of style. Everything was a trilogy. Now, with series like Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas, it seems like long series may beContinue reading “#YABkLove Day 24: Long-Running Series”

#YABkLove Day 23: Comics or Graphic Novels

I recently have been reading more and more graphic novels so I’m excited about this day. There are great adaptions of classics done in graphic form out there, but also amazing original stories with beautiful art that I hope people will experience. Here’s a few that I’ve enjoyed that could be considered YA:

#YABkLove Day 22: Fabulous Firsts

Interpret this one how you will: first love, first kisses, first times, first time away from home, etc. We all know how momentous those “first” milestones are. Which books do you recall that have great “firsts” for the characters? And what made them memorable?

#YaBkLove Day 21: Laugh Out Loud

What books get you rolling with laughter? It takes a lot for a book to really make me laugh out loud but I’m always open to suggestions of funny books. One that has been recommended to me over and over again as hilarious is Angus, Thongs, and Full Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison. What other funnyContinue reading “#YaBkLove Day 21: Laugh Out Loud”

#YaBkLove Day 20: Summer Settings

In case you aren’t getting enough summer where you are (it’s at least 95 degrees here in Texas), let’s talk about books set in the summer time! Summer love, no school, beaches, vacations, whatever summer means to you. What books do you know that are set in summer? I’ll be honest…I can’t think of anyContinue reading “#YaBkLove Day 20: Summer Settings”

#YABkLove Day 19: Leading Ladies #WCW

Who are the women in Young Adult fiction that stand out to you long after you close the book? Who is your Woman Crush Wednesday? You can like them for any reason. Bad ass ladies that fight for themselves like Katniss Everdeen or sweet and kind. Maybe you like sneaky, smart chicks. Whatever your reasons,Continue reading “#YABkLove Day 19: Leading Ladies #WCW”

Pitch Wars 2017 #PimpMyBio

This is my first year participating in Pitch Wars or even knowing much of anything about it. This time last year I was completely out of the writing loop, as I had given myself the summer off of my MA in English and Creative Writing program and decided to skip out on Camp NaNoWriMo becauseContinue reading “Pitch Wars 2017 #PimpMyBio”

#YABkLove Day 18: Audiobooks

I’m a big fan of listening to audiobooks because of my commute, but the narrator of the audio edition makes a huge difference in the listening experience. I have stopped certain books because the narrator was so awful (not naming names here), while some are so excellent they add a whole level of enjoyment toContinue reading “#YABkLove Day 18: Audiobooks”

#YABkLove Day 17: Hottest Heroes #MCM

Time to gush on the most crush worthy guys in YA novels. Who is your #MCM (Man Crush Monday) from a book that you can recall? Now, the standards are up to you. These can be dorky guys that steal your heart with sweetness like Levi in Fangirl or tough guys that fight alongside their ladies. ItContinue reading “#YABkLove Day 17: Hottest Heroes #MCM”
