I love YA (young adult) fiction. Absolutely love it.
I only read it occasionally when I was actually a teenager myself, but I still feel like I'm a teenager so that may explain why I love this genre so much. I'll read almost anything YA - fantasy, paranormal, romance, realistic, whatever. I'm not nuts about dystopian or post-apocalyptic, but that's in general, not just YA. And I will read them, if enough people tell me they're good :)
I also love that so many excellent and high-profile YA novels have made the genre acceptable for adults to read. Not that I would have let being an adult stop me reading YA (I'm 27, that's still young, right? Right?), but I love that there are so many great writers producing books for teens, and that so many people are enjoying them.
If you like YA, I highly recommend checking out Hannah Moskowitz. Imagine a young funky Chuck Palahniuk but full of hope, who creates very loving and lovable family-focused characters. I adored her first novel, Break, and I'm partway through Invincible Summer
Sarah Rees Brennan's The Demon's Lexicon trilogy is also great, and the final title is due out very very very soon. And for British realistic fiction, I heart Sarra Manning - Pretty Things and Let's Get Lost are probably my favourites, but I read Nobody's Girl sitting on a pier last summer eating chutney sandwiches and will love it forever because even the sight of the cover makes me happy.
Anyone care to recommend some new YA authors? Have Kindle, will read!
