Hello all and welcome! I’m Candice and have a mild obsession with Young Adult Literature. And I’m guessing that since you’re visiting, you probably have one as well. Unless you’re only here because I paid you the big bucks as a bribe.
Over the past few years my reading interests have pulled a Benjamin Button and begun aging backwards. No longer are the antics or financial angst of the twenty-something interesting. No more do I long for a good romance/sex scene. Bring on the high school first loves, the angst of teenage drama, the fantasy that only YA can deliver. For a while I feared I was alone, that creepy old lady (okay, late 20s) who perused the YA section at the local library and/or bookstore. But then I discovered that OTHER GROWN UPS LIKE YA TOO!
I wanted to create a site for myself and others who enjoy good Young Adult Literature, who like to live vicariously through books and only wishing their teenage years were as exciting as those literary characters we can’t help but love (or love to hate). So whether your tastes in literature never grew up or you’ve recently rediscovered your youth, welcome to the site and let’s get to reading, adult style!*
*Adult Style – reading with your tasty adult beverage of choice because hey, there are some perks to being a grown-up!
