For a lot of reasons, it’s hard to get into it really.
For one thing, a lot of times they’re not hard to read. I like to have fun when I’m reading, to really enjoy and get into the stories and characters. I still haven’t finished Game of Thrones, it’s so huge and complex. I know it’s not a hard read but I just keep going back to YA novels instead.
I have recently been reading a ton of dystopian novels, those and apocalyptic/post-apocalyptic have always been some of my favorite genres, but when I was writing my novel, reading an excessive amount was helpful. I was able to distinguish things I liked or didn’t like and utilize that information for my book. Plus, all the books were so fun to read, I got most of them pretty cheap on my kindle.
I buy more books than I read, I can’t stop! There are so many more that I want too.
I like my series to match so if I start buying a book in a certain format with a certain cover (trade paperback with a certain stylized cover) I like to have all the books in that series match. Not to mention trade paperback being my favorite and you rarely see YA in mass =]
I relish having signed books and first editions. It’s just that much better. I would prefer to meet the author and have them sign a book, but the signing is enough. Singed on a first edition is the best. I am OPENING UP TO YOU ALL HERE. I am a little CRAZY. I’m the same with movies, I like them to all match, why can’t I get my movies signed?! I love to get the special editions that Target or Best Buy sell. If they did special editions of books, oh dear would I go insane. I would probably have to get 10 copies of each book I really wanted from all over the place!
YA’s I read this year?
(I just bought the Maze Runner and am getting A Million Suns, Crossed, Outpost and Once from the library when my hold is up.)
So check out this awesome giveaway of almost 50 signed YA books that an awesome author is doing!
When I first started reading this novel, I had high expectations that were being let down early on.
I’m not sure exactly what I was hoping fore, maybe for less vain and self indulgent/obsessed characters that I could root for or at least want to relate to. Instead I found I…
4.5/5 stars (it’s hard to give ratings with just 5 stars, I might have to change to 10!)
Given that I just finished this book, I want to say a lot with out giving anything away.
I had a hard time rating it. I’ve been reading a lot of dystopian novels lately, and I was very happy with this…
Insurgent comes out soon! I’m applying to receive an Advance Reading Copy though, I am so excited to read the book. I hope they send me one, really help me in this world of books and reviews.
Hence the reblog.
