YA: What Is Considered YA

So I don’t know about everyone else but I happen to love YA Fiction. I however was told today that Young Adult fiction is geared for the ages of 12 to 18. I am merely 26 I feel like I am constituted as a young adult. I guess what I am trying to say is don’t let a label stop you from reading just because you think it is meant for a younger audience.

For Example, if you are fantasy fan I thoroughly would recommend checking out A Great And Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray. It is told from the perspective of a young girl named Gemma Doyle, A girl in the year 1895. It is a book that draws you in with strange new worlds to explore and an ever present sense of doom lingering in the air. It is considered YA but I feel like it a timeless tale that anyone can enjoy. Well that is my little book rant for this week, I hope you all found this enjoyable and maybe, it will help you pick up a new book that may not be in your normal age range or genre.

I would also love to hear your thoughts on this subject as well.

Black Heart, A Cursed Hearts Novel, by R.L. Mathewson

Black Heart, A Cursed Hearts Novel, by R.L. Mathewson.Summary:

There was something seriously wrong with Marty. That was the only explanation that she could come up with. Why else would she feel this way for the biggest SOB in town? Granted, he was also the hottest man in town, but he was also arrogant, callous, and determined to drive her away even as he drove her crazy with his touch. She should just walk away from him and probably would if it wasn’t for this connection that she’d always had with him that kept making her want more with the one man that couldn’t give her anything more than heartache. 

He should have left and never looked back when he’d decided to finally do the right thing and push Marty out of his life, but instead he stuck around to torture himself by staying close to the one woman that he could never allow himself to have. She deserved better than him, better than the tortured existence that he led and better than the horrifying future that waited for him. 
Authors note: This book is different from my other series. It deals with ghosts and soul mates. You may not enjoy this book if you don’t enjoy those subjects. Thank you, R.L.

Stay strong!

Stay strong, ladies & gents! Sometimes you’ll come back better than ever!!!

Pre-Order Lady Midnight, book one of The Dark Artifices, by Cassandra Clare

Los Angeles. It’s been five years since the events of the Mortal Instruments when Nephilim stood poised on the brink of oblivion and Shadowhunter Emma Carstairs lost her parents. After the blood and violence she witnessed as a child, Emma has dedicated her life to to discovering exactly what it was that killed her parents and getting her revenge.
Raised in the Los Angeles Institute with the Blackthorn family, Emma is paired as a parabatai with her best friend, Julian Blackthorn. A series of murders in the city catch her attention — they seem to have the same characteristics as the deaths of her parents. Could the murderer be the same person? And her attention isn’t the only one caught: someone has been murdering Downworlders as well. The Fair Folk make a deal with the Institute: if the Blackthorns and Emma will investigate the killings, they’ll return Mark Blackthorn to his home. The catch: they have only two weeks to find the killers. Otherwise it’s open war between faeries and Nephilim.
The Shadowhunters of the Institute must race against time to catch the killers, even as they begin to suspect the involvement of those closest to them. At the same time, Emma is falling in love with the one person in the world she’s absolutely forbidden by Shadowhunter Law to love. Set against the glittering backdrop of present-day Los Angeles, Emma must learn to trust her head and her heart as she investigates a demonic plot that stretches from the warlock-run nightclubs of the Sunset Strip to the enchanted sea that pounds the beaches of Santa Monica.
