YA Literature Rules

I am a great fan of Young Adult Literature. I would like to cover YA books that I have read and review if I like them or not, and what I think teens would like or not like about the book. I would also like to highlight YA authors and their current as well as up and coming works. Young adult books fascinate and intrigue me. I am here to tell you that I read at least one young adult book every few weeks and I just can’t get enough! Maybe that’s because I work in a library and I have supreme access to all kinds of wonderful young adult books. I find library books to be like gems you pull out of a lost pirate’s treasure chest and then later you return them to the chest so that someone else can get a chance to experience the joy that you have had.
Some of the books I have read recently are:
Someone Like You by Sarah Dessen Twilight by Stephanie Meyer
Ender’s Game and Speaker for the Dead by Orson Scott Card
Life in the Fat Lane by Cheri Bennett
The Truth about Forever by Sarah Dessing
Artemis Fowl the Opal Deception by Eion Colfer
The First Part Last by Angela Johnson
Inexcusable by Chris Lynch
Poison by Chris Wooding
Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling
