Blogging from A to Z Challenge Books Young Adult

G #atozchallenge

Today is G day and there are so many books to share I don’t know where to begin!


The first two I have chosen for you today are:

Goddess Interrupted Unconventional Librarian

Goddess Interrupted is by Aimee Carter. Here’s what Goodreads has to say:

Becoming immortal wasn’t supposed to be the easy part. Though Kate is about to be crowned Queen of the Underworld, she’s as isolated as ever. And despite her growing love for Henry, ruler of the Underworld, he’s becoming ever more distant and secretive. Then, in the midst of Kate’s coronation, Henry is abducted by the only being powerful enough to kill him: the King of the Titans.

As the other gods prepare for a war that could end them all, it is up to Kate to save Henry from the depths of Tartarus. But in order to navigate the endless caverns of the Underworld, Kate must enlist the help of the one person who is the greatest threat to her future.

If you like Greek mythology then this might something that interests you. I’m not sure it’s right for me but I’d love to know if you’ve read it!

The other title is Graceling by Kristen Cashore.  From Goodreads:

In a world where people born with an extreme skill—called a Grace—are feared and exploited, Katsa carries the burden of the skill even she despises: the Grace of killing. She lives under the command of her uncle Randa, King of the Middluns, and is expected to execute his dirty work, punishing and torturing anyone who displeases him.

When she first meets Prince Po, who is Graced with combat skills, Katsa has no hint of how her life is about to change.

She never expects to become Po’s friend.

Well, it’s gotten some good reviews, so I might put this on my TBR list.  What about you? Have you read it?

Stay tuned for a special surprise G title!

Blogging from A to Z Challenge Books Young Adult

B #atozchallenge


The blogging from A to Z Challenge is underway!  Yesterday I hit it hard with letter A and Aces Up by Lauren Barnholdt, a YA book about a teen who gets involved in a secret poker ring.

Today is the letter B and because I couldn’t choose just one, I chose just four books for you:

Unconventional Librarian

Beach Blonds by Katherine Applegate (of recent The One and Only Ivan fame).  Heres what Goodreads says about it:

Summer Smith is in for the best summer of her life. Between the cold weather and her boyfriendless existence in Minnesota, Summer is ready for sun, sand, and boys in the Florida Keys. And by the end of the first day, she has more than enough to keep her busy: Adam, the senator’s son, has looks, power, and all the money in the world. Diver, the mystery man, is mellow, intriguing, and definitely unique. And Seth, the perfect guy…only he has a girlfriend. But with new friends, cute guys, and miles of hot white sand, Summer’s in for more trouble than she thinks….

I’m thinking this will be one of my beach reads this summer!

Burn for Burn by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian, besties whom I met last fall when they visited Towne Book Center & Cafe (my place of employment)!

Bitterblue by Kristen Cashore, part of the Graceling Realm; hot hot hot!!

and Beautiful Creatures, by Kami Garcia, part of the Beautiful Creatures series, and now a major motion picture.

Well, what do you think? Good reading there isn’t it?

C you next time; get it? C…. har har har (sorry I need more coffee)
