#YABkLove Day 11: Secondary Characters

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”

#YABkLove Day 9: Sci-Fi

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”

#YABkLove Day 8: Fantasy

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?

#YABkLove Day 4: Go-To Authors

Is there an author that is on your auto-buy list? Any time you see a new book from them you know, without a doubt, it will be great? For me, this usually means that the author has written in multiple series or several strong stand-alones and really proven their strength. One great book won’t addContinue reading “#YABkLove Day 4: Go-To Authors”

#YABkLove Day 3: Historical

What Young Adult book with a Historical setting do you adore? I scrolled my Goodreads and realized I am scant on these, at least ones without any magic or paranormal elements. However I did find Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys. Set in 1950’s New Orleans this book is swimming in setting. It has beenContinue reading “#YABkLove Day 3: Historical”

#YABkLove Day 2: Contemporary

What contemporary YA book do you just love? I’ll be honest, I don’t read much YA with modern settings, or at least I hadn’t been. I have always preferred YA with a touch of Fantasy or Paranormal because reading about high school settings and cliques and boyfriend problems didn’t appeal to me. If that summationContinue reading “#YABkLove Day 2: Contemporary”

#YABkLove Day 1: All Time Favorite

Okay, this is a hard one. Can you choose your all time favorite YA book? I think I’ve narrowed it down to two, and they share a similar factor. I read them around the same time period and they both have mythical creatures that are basically angels. Angelfall by Susan Ee. This book has everythingContinue reading “#YABkLove Day 1: All Time Favorite”
