  7. Honestly, I'm not a big fan of this genre maybe because I rarely read it and I think I have already passed the age of their readers coverage (don't know if it has an age limit). But recently I have read one of this books, I read it because I got it free from First Reads Goodreads, LOL, and I think I will read it more since I got a couple of Young Adult books in my TBR pile from some giveaways that I had won :P.

  92. I love Young Adult because it's.. well, it's great. I think that almost every YA book excellently captures the feelings associated with not only teenage years, but also life in general: Excitement, confusion, love, heartbreak, depression, joy etc. This is why I think YA novels hold a place in so many people of all ages, hearts; because they're easy to relate to. This is such a hard question, and I always have to have an inner debate with myself over what I'd choose, but my answer is always the same; "The Fault in Our Stars" by John Green. Thanks for the giveaway

    ReplyDelete

  96. I like YA because this genre explores so many emotions at such a tender age. I can't really tell why I love YA, just that I simply do. Just like the other question I cant simply tell what book I love the most cause they are so many stories - Vampire Academy and Bloodlines, Insurgent, Hunger Games,Cinder, Under the Never Sky, The Duff,Shut Out, Pushing The Limits and many others- written by such a greats authors.

    ReplyDelete
  97. There are just some really fantastic books in the YA genre - some of them even better than adult books - and for me, it's ultimately all about the story. Obsidian by Jennifer Armentrout was fantastic!

    ReplyDelete
  98. I don't have a most loved YA, I have many. And I don't have specific reasons for loving YA at my age, I just do. Something clicks when I read it, that just doesn't click when I read adult fic. Gotta love YA!

    ReplyDelete
  116. I really got into YA because I teach middle school kids, and want to be a school librarian. So I got involved with my state library association, and started reading to help pick the state nominees, and I was hooked. They're just such good reads. And even when you get older, you still have the same insecurities as teens, or at least I do. Plus, books about people my age, they are usually married with kids, and I can't relate to that as I've never been married, and don't have any kids.

    ReplyDelete
  117. Though YA is not my favorite genre, I do enjoy reading them. I feel that the authors are better able to convey their emotions, relationships and worlds at times.

  130. YA is the learning process--learning first loves, first kisses, learning to stretch our wings and grow up. It's like watching a baby bird learn to feed himself. It's inspiring and uplifting.

  133. I love YA, because there is just so many cool, fun books. Books that weren't there 10-12 years ago when I was in high school even. I love reading YA and being able to relate the issues that the characters are going through with those of my students (I'm a school psych) as well as myself. I read quite a bit of YA which is always an ice breaker when I work with teenagers. Some of the titles I've liked recently have been the Daughters of Smoke and Bone books (AMAZING!), Anna Dressed in Blood, and Delirium.

    ReplyDelete
  134. I love YA just because I do! I'm not sure how else to explain it! I love where the authors can take the reader and the story!! My favorite series is The Medusa Girls by Tera Lynn Childs!

  148. For me, I think it's the unique and original stories coming from YA authors. Granted there are always going to be stories with some cliches, but from what I've seen lately, the groundbreaking stuff is coming from the YA genre.

    I love the Iron Fey series by Kagawa, the Modern Faerie Tale series by Holly Black, and Ballad and Tithe by Maggie Stiefvater, in addition to Melissa Marr's Wicked Lovely. (Do you notice a fantasy trend there?)

  150. I love YA because it's so easy to escape from reality and enter into a wonderful story, if only for a short time! I love all of Jennifer Armentrout's books, namely the Lux series and the Covenant series. Anna and the French Kiss is also a favorite of mine! Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

  151. I like YA because you can mashup a ton of genres in one book. Right now I'm reading City of a Thousand Dolls, and liking it very much.

  154. I really enjoy many genres and YA is just one. My criteria is a good story and often I find the YA is more focused on the story than on more adult issues. It is not YA, but I highly recommend the Rachel Morgan series by Kim Harrison. Lots of fun characters and while there is some adult content it is more story driven and loads of fun :)

  159. MY fave is The Giver. I like YA cause they are great stories usually but at the core they get right to the story and dont try to shock or be to "adult"

  162. One YA book i fell in love with was Poison Princess! Can't wait for the sequel! I love reading YA because of the sweet build up of teens falling in love and the 'love triangle' presented in most YA books!
