2011 marked an exciting return to YA fiction for me, a genre I have loved for 30 years. I tried to keep up with Luke, but I couldn’t quite cover everything. He’s one Harry Potter ahead of me, at the moment. And he is reading Anastasia Krupnik books at school, and he is always surprised when he says, “Then guess what happens…” and I happen to remember what happened next.
The library has been conspiring against me lately, sending me all my holds at once, so I have been reading furiously. So far, 2012 has already been a great year for books.
What was your favorite YA fiction book that you can recommend? I’ve become very frustrated with YA fiction lately.
love it. I was cleaning my nightstand out on Saturday when I couldn’t snowboard and found an old excel that was a former book list of yours and your book list. I have a book list file folder that I try to remember to take to the library with me. I’m so glad to have you as a source!
Love the idea of the “book list”! Yay
