Why I Love YA!

Firstly, it has been ages since I posted. Sooo much going on in life. Still reading, but much slower. I got married in October so that took most of my time. I need to do lots of updating on here. Anywho...back to the question of why I love YA? I love YA because, as a young adult I can relate. I am a little older than most characters in the books but I went through those years and I remember what it was like. Being able to relate to a book makes things way more fun for the reader. And I am a sucker for romance and YA romance is just too cute! Cause everyone can relate with the having their first boyfriend or girlfriend. :) As I get older, I don't think I will ever stop loving YA. I feel YA helps bring out my youth. :D

30 Day Challenge: Day 12

So I realize I am waaaay behind. I have been busy for the Holidays and then after the Holidays I have been trying to catch up on my reading since I got so behind in November and December. But heres question 12.

Day 12 - Book that is most like your life?
Hm, I'm not sure. I tend to read fantasy, dystopian and young adult books. And I'm not sure that any of them are that much like my life. Maybe some of Sarah Dessens books can somewhat relate to my life when I was younger, since thats kinda what her books are about. Young girls and life. Not that any are specifically like my life but maybe a mixture of them all.

30 Day Challenge: Day 11

Day 11 - Book from your favorite author?
This one is insanely hard. I have many favorite authors and many favorite books by each author. So I will just name a few.

J.K Rowling- Harry Potter Series. And in the series I would have to say Prisoner of Azkaban and Deathly Hallows are my favorites.

Sherrilyn Kenyon- This is tough, I'll just name the series. Dark Hunter Series and The Chronicles of Nick.

J.R Ward- Black Dagger Brotherhood series (can't really pick a favorite book)

Kristin Hannah- On Mystic Lake, Between Sisters, Firefly Lane (I haven't read all of her books yet)

Cassandra Clare- The Mortal Instruments series, probably The City of Fallen Angels being my favorite and The Infernal Devices.

Gena Showalter- Lords of the Underworld series

Lara Adrian- Midnight Breed series

I seriously have so many, so I'll just stop with this list.

30 Day Challenge: Day 10

Day 10 - Book that changed your life?
Hm, I really feel like this is coming up a lot but it has been with me for like 12 years of my life and I grew up with it. Of course I am talking about Harry Potter. I got the first 3 books for my 11th birthday. It took me awhile to read the first 2. I wasn't that big of a reader then. But by the 3rd one I loved them. It took me only 2 weeks to read book 3, (for a 13 year old who goes to school thats not bad). The first 2 took me 6-9 months each. Ever since that 3rd book though I have been an avid reader. So it changed my life in that I now do things like this for the love of books.

30 Day Challenge: Day 9

Day 9 - Book that makes you sick?
Okay, this question kind of threw me, I don't know. So I will answer with the book that disturbs me. And that, of course, is The Hunger Games. Whats more disturbing than your government making kids kill each other so they can survive. And then watching it on tv and calling it entertainment? Ugh, I guess you can say that makes me sick, the idea of it.

30 Day Challenge: Day 8

Day 8 - Book that scares you?
This question, I don't think I can answer really. I don't read scary books, so theres non specific I can think of. I guess in general I'm just plain scared of scary books. Haha. I know I'm a chicken but I have never been into horror/scary things. So I am gonna just, in a way, skip this one. lol
