Teen Read Week 2009!
This week is Teen Read Week, so if you're a teen, or you know a teen, or you like young adult fiction, come on by and check out a book! We have a wonderful teen section, something that wasn't really around when I was a teen, and there are so many new authors who are writing specifically for the young adult age group. I've read a number of young adult books and like them because they are the happy medium between juvenile fiction and adult fiction.
A few of my recent reads that I enjoyed include: Wildwood Dancing, The Hunger Games & Catching Fire, Life as We Knew It and, of course, the ever famous Twilight series.
Do you have a fovarite Young Adult book? If so, leave a comment and let us know the title.
