#YABkLove Day 26: Adaptations

#YABkLove Day 26

It is day 26 and we have finally made it to my wheelhouse: adaptations! Let’s talk updated versions of fairy tales, myths, retold classics, folklore, etc. This was a huge trend about a year to three years ago but it is dying off now (you know, just as I finished my own fairy tale retelling manuscript). I still love them and I think there are some great ones to talk about.

Here are some of my favorites:


#YABkLove Day 15: Book You Borrowed and Never Returned

#YABkLove Day 15

So we are getting away from the genres for a day of confession. Have you ever borrowed a book and loved it so much you didn’t give it back to the lender? This could be from the library (although I’m a librarian so I will cover my eyes for those confessions) or from a friend?

Or maybe you did the honorable thing and went and bought yourself a copy so you could return the original.

I’m struggling to think of my own for this one…I do know I checked out Cinder from the library and loved it so much I bought my own copy though.


Your turn. Confession time!

#YABkLove Day 9: Sci-Fi

#YABkLove Day 9

Deep space, time travel, the future, or maybe just dystopia. What makes you think of Science Fiction?

This isn’t a genre I partake in very often, and when I do it tends to be “light” science fiction. I don’t do “hard” science fiction, maybe because I don’t do science at all. I’m not a fan of a ton of scientific detail in my fiction, however I know others love it.

So which do you prefer? What is some YA Sci-Fi that stands out? Personally, I think the genre has gained a lot of ground, not just in the dystopian field but beyond that and into more varied Sci-Fi as of late.

Here are some of my picks:
