READING YOUNG ADULT

I have found myself reading more Young Adult and I have to wonder, where the heck were these books when I was a young adult? All I got were the books required by school and Babysitter’s Club.

I’ve discovered wonderful worlds of faeries, vampires, werewolves, witches, ghosts, undead students walking around, and a girl who can explore people’s dreams. Young love, unrequited love, immortal love, bad-for-you love, every type of love possible I have discovered.

I want to list some of the books I have fallen in love with because I’m always excited to talk about great stories. First on my list worth mentioning are the Mortal Instruments Trilogy by Cassandra Clare. There are three books in this series and it’s about a young girl who finds out she is a nephilim, a human with angel blood, who fights off demons. The next books worth mention are by Lisa McMann. They are the Wake Trilogy and focuses on a young girl who falls into people’s dreams. She learns to help people through dreams and learns to catch bad guys for the police. And my third set of books I need to mention are by Kelley Armstrong. These books are about a girl who gets her magical “gift” of raising ghosts when she has her first period. She is sent off to a home for troubled teens because she doesn’t understand what she’s able to do, and there she meets others with unusual abilities.

There are so many more worth mentioning, so many great authors that really stimulate the imagination. I can usually find these books at my local library but those I have specifically mentioned I have bought at put in my personal collection.
