Well, it is officially Saturday and the end of our first Theme Week is here. How did everyone enjoy our Young Adult reviews? Did they make you want to try the books out? Does it make you wanna see more Theme Weeks? If so, leave a comment below of what kind of themes and we’ll consider them 😉
For any of you that missed them, here are the five reviews we had for our Young Adult week:
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Safe by C. Kennedy
Ash by Malinda Lo
Under the Bridge by R. Cooper
Graceling by Kristin Cashore
Some of us had a better experience than others but that’s the risk we take with books, isn’t it?
It was a week of firsts, though. First Theme Week, first giveaway winner, first poll, first cover reveal. A great week, all around and we hope everyone enjoyed it as much as we did.
Now, enjoy the rest of your weekend and for those in the States, have a great holiday 🙂

What is it about Young Adult books that make you want to read them? What is it that makes you NOT want to read them?
Obviously, we all have different tastes and like to read different things. Personally, I prefer YA books because I like reading about that ‘first love’ and how it shapes a person, the exploration into their sexuality and how they cope with it. Some might argue that first loves never work out so how could you like something when the HEA you ‘get’ doesn’t last. Well, this is why we read fiction! I can be delusional to my heart’s content and believe these two people met at a young age and died a couple at an old age and stayed together all those years. LOL.
Anyway, besides that, when I read m/m, I like seeing those guys come out, whether by accident or just because it’s time. There’s just something about it happening when the characters are still young that makes it so much more better for me than if they’re older.
There are loads of other reasons why I prefer Young Adult like how m/f focuses more on the situations and not the romance in fantasy (Throne of Glass, for example) or how it takes place at school. What can I say? I like my school settings… and this rolls over to movies and TV shows (Teen Wolf!).
Honestly, who can resist Sterek?!
So now that you know what I like, what is it y’all like? Or, I suppose I should ask some people what is it they DON’T like about YA books? Are there reasons you gravitate to them? Or are there reasons you avoid them like the plague?
Comment below because I really want to know!!
Welcome to our first Theme Week!
