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”
I wanted a day to dedicate to bodies that, in any way, deviate from standard beauty. Interpret this how you will. It could mean plus sized, physical disability or handicap, too skinny, too weak, too strong whatever. I think for awhile there was a trend for all YA heroines being very skinny and pale andContinue reading “#YABkLove Day 16: All Bodies Are Beautiful”
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?Continue reading “#YABkLove Day 15: Book You Borrowed and Never Returned”
Witches, ghosts, vampires, etc. What is your favorite paranormal trope? And can we all admit we read Twilight back in the day? I will. I think this genre has fallen off in popularity lately, but I think there are still plenty of titles worth talking about. What are your favorites?
Hate ’em or love ’em some books leave us hanging! What books have left you on a cliffhanger? Was is pleasurable suspense or did it leave you unsatisfied? Was it the first in a series? A standalone?

This is a day I am excited for. Let me know your favorite secondary characters in a novel. What best friends, villains maybe, or other minor characters have stood out to you? Sometimes they can steal the show from the leads. Mine are, without a doubt, Mik and Zuzana from Daughter of Smoke and Bone! ZuzanaContinue reading “#YABkLove Day 11: Secondary Characters”
So I don’t have much for this. The only thing I can think of is a series of paranormal mysteries I read in high school. Who else has a great YA mystery?
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 fanContinue reading “#YABkLove Day 9: Sci-Fi”
Elves, dragons, immortals, angels, sword fighting or magic – what are your fantasy favorites? This tends to be what I gravitate to the most. I can go for either portal, urban, or high fantasy depending on my mood. There are always classics, or modern classics, like Harry Potter, but what else do you love?
