30 Days of Books: Day 13

 Day 13 – Favorite childhood book OR current favorite YA book (or both!)

Heh. Black Beauty? It’s my first book memory, and one that influence my reading for many years, with horse books being my food of choice for a long time. After I outgrew horse stories though, I kind of skipped YA fiction and went straight to Mills and Boon, Harlequin Historicals, Virginia Andrews and Dean Koontz and Stephen King. I’ve read more YA targetted fiction in the past few years than I ever did as a teen. Probably Flowers in the Attic was my favourite then, and Lightning by Dean Koontz in late high school (ooh, which qualifies for the read more than five times day!). I did read the Alanna books from Tamora Pierce back then, which are still made of win, and were one of my early forays into fantasy.

More recently, I adored Scott Westerfeld’s Midnighters series, and love Liar by Justine Larbalestier. And lots more, thanks to all my YA reading for judging in the past two years!
