One would think as the mother of 6 I would have a firm grasp on YA lit. Truth, I don't. My oldest is now 29 and she was and is still a voracious reader like I am. The 22 yr old likes to read, but she doesn't hold the same passion. My 19 yr old son is a sci-fi buff and he reads when something really catches his fancy. I never really got into YA lit with them, they always read what was good for their age group. It's my 12 yr old dd MaryAnn that I am trying to find some good books for. She is a funny personality. While she is 12 her mind and soul is old, always has been, but that doesn't mean I let her read stuff that is not age appropriate. She has read the 1st Twilight, I will let her read the 2nd, and I think I'll end it there for now. Vampire Diaries might be too much for her, I have never read them. Maximum Ride by James Patterson was a series that she just loved and tore through all of them. Mare is very smart and witty, she'll need a book that will hold her interest and make her think a bit too.
What I'm looking for is some suggestions that might fit the bill for her. Nothing to racy something that has some intrigue that will have her not wanting to put the book down. I am defering to those bloggers that are big fans of YA, any ideas, I would love it!
I have not read a book in 24 hours! Wow, heehee. I have Pleasure Unbound loaded on the kindle and ready to go, I'll be starting it tonight. I've been wanting to get the Demonica series going and now I will, I hear I should keep a spray bottle with ice water in it near by ; )

For my Whacha Reading Friday post I'll let you know what I think. By the way, for those who have been considering the Kindle, Amazon has just dropped it to $189.00, that is an awesome deal!! It's usually $259.00, so if you or someone you know is contemplating it, now might be a good time.
