    Adults who <3 YA fiction!

    Does anyone else love young adult fiction? I've read some absolutely brilliant books recently aimed at young adults- The Hunger Games, Delerium, Harry potter....

    Really do love them, a lot of them are appealing to adults as well as older teenagers. Any other fans? And which books have you enjoyed?

    I don't know, but I love that a lot of them are either dystopias or fantasy.

    I think they are supposedly books that bridge the gap between kids and adult fiction.

    It sounds quite good. Look's like its an American style series with short episodes rather than full books.

    I've never read a series like that, seems a bit pointless. Bit like the hunger games, kinda thought they could have squeezed it into one book!

    The hunger games needed 3 I think, 1 or 2 books would have rushed the ending.

    Stephen king has done some books where a chapter is released at a time, like a magazine type thing almost. Ive never seen it here though.

    So I've nearly finished the fifty shades series and wondering whether to start divergent by Veronica Roth (a YA dystopia) or the mortal instruments series by Cassandra Clare.....

    I've got that on my kindle but not started yet. It looks good. It's a series of 4 books.

    I read uglies, was okay, I want to read the others but don't think it's worth paying 4.99 each for them!

    Taken a bit of a break and reading some chick lit, but got birthmarked lined up to read next

    20 lost : 47 to goal

    Same end of the world idea, has got good reviews on amazon. The centre girl is a midwife to the poor group and has to select babies to give to the 'advanced' group. Can't wait to get started
