My YA Gateway Books
Before I started my blog last year, YA was just a small slice of the books that I read. It wasn’t that I was opposed to the genre; it just wasn’t on my radar. In 2008, a friend told me that I HAD to read this book called Twilight. At that point, Breaking Dawn had just come out, but I was still completely unaware of the series. I borrowed her copy of Twilight – well, she basically forced it on me – just to be polite. But then a strange thing happened. I loved it. I immediately bought the other three books, and I sat outside on my patio reading them over the next few days. I don’t know what it was that captivated me. I would never try to argue that the books are well-written. I have always loved vampire, so…there’ s that. But I think it was also that it had been a very long time since I had read a YA book, and it took me back to the kind of books that I loved when I was young.
After that time, and prior to starting my blog, I read a handful of other YA books that now rank among my favorites in any genre. It was in large part due to these books below that I continue to read YA (and to blog about it.)
