The characters are great, too. They are the type where you're not entirely sure if you should love them or hate them, and I think in the end, you do a lot of both, with each one. They are very human, in that way.
Like what? You can PM me if you don't want to spoil it for everyone else lol. I ask because parts of the second book made me go "WHAAAAAT?!?" as well.

You know, I really don't anymore. At least not fiction! (I read a fair amount of non-fiction.)

I just tend to find YA stuff more interesting and easy to get into. I can't help it.

I read a lot of YA too. Though, I will say I also read a lot of Adult Fantasy but I'm seriously particular about what I like and to be honest most of it is similar to the YA stuff I read just a little bit more mature and longer.

That was on a reading list of historical books for a class I took in high school. I'm thinking whoever made the list didn't actually read it But that's ok, I ended up taking advantage of it!

I recently checked out his book Coyote Blue. It was actually really good, a bit different than his newer works. I love how he's evolved with his style, and just become even more hilarious, but Coyote Blue was great.

I need to grab Practical Demonkeeping!

Also, I learned not too long ago that The Emperor in his books was actually based on a real guy.

Not young adult, and not romance, but from the sort-of-sci-fi, there are vampires (sometimes) genre - The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher is probably my favorite series ever. Clever, fun, snarky...I adore everything about them. Quite a few out now (maybe 13?) and they come out about once a year.

Oh man agreed. I just finished that one recently.

I'm already up to five books read this year. I could probably compile a list if I thought hard. XD

I still need to read the Hunger Games, I don't have a kindle or any fancy reading tablet, so I guess good ol' bookstore, here I come lol.

Its not a series, but Holes is a good book.
I use to HATE reading, like hate hate hate it. Still kinda do. But I read Holes in less than a day and its got 50 chapters. Its not long chapters, but its an okay thick book. I loved it.
Yes the book Holes is from the Disney movie Holes which I LOVE to bits because I big Shia fan lol

Other than that, Band Of Sisters. Its about women in the military who get deployed and their lives while deployed. Its a really good book. I cried through most of it, but I'm a wimp when it comes to stuff like that lol.

That's all I got right now.
