Welcome To Lauren's Library YA Mania!

Thursday, September 2, 2010
I have been reading a lot of YA books lately. It seems like the ones that have been recommended to me have been so amazing and I've devored most of them it record time. However, my bookshelf is getting a little over crowded so Ive decided to do a little giveaway. All you have to do is respond to this post telling me which YA book is your favorite and why, or become a new follower on my blog(double points for both, triple if you follow me on twitter). I've listed my top five YA books below along with the books I'll be giving away.

5. Fallen- A teen love triangle mixed with feuding angels, a boarding school for troubled teens, and a love that seems to be forbidden. Yeah, I'm all over it.

4. The Vampire Diaries Series- The whole series was fantastic. If you haven't read them, I suggest you do. I mean who doesn't love two hot vampires fighting over a girl right? I'm still waiting for Elena's ultimate decision. Stefan or Damon?(I'm gunning for Damon (***wink***)

3. Beautiful Creatures - Who doesn't love a young man who will do anything for the Love of his life. Throw in a little Caster magic and you've got a stellar novel all wrapped into one.

2. Hush Hush - A angsty love story involving a fallen angel, rebel. This book has become a new obsession of mine. I always love the books where the love that grows between two people starts out as a little smolder and grows into a hot, blazing fire.

1. Before I Fall- This book captivated me, mind, body, and soul. The tale of a teen who has seven days to relive the last day of her life over again was undoubtedly appealing. What would you do? What would you change about the way you live your life?

    Now, to pick *one* favorite will be hard, but I have to say Shiver just made me swoon like nobody's business. I mean, I'm a 31-year old lesbian with a crush on Sam!! I'm totally doomed. :)

    One of my favorite YA books has to be Kissed by an Angel by Elizabeth Chandler. It is such a powerful love story filled with suspense.

    OMG!!!!! Those books look SOOOOO good!!!!

    I'm already a blog and twitter follower ;)

    I am completely IN LOVE with YA, so I don't know if I could choose just one, but for my favorites, I would have to go back to when I first started reading YA, I will still read and reread everything by Tamora Pierce, L.J. Smith, Cate Tiernan, and Tera Lynn Childs. As much as I LOVE all the new stuff that's coming out, they can't compete with nostalgia ;)

    Lora1967 I would have to say Hush Hush was my favorite. It takes me back to being a teenager and the crush and intrigue and the mysterousness about that boy that you think is cute. I love the remark where she ask patch if he can fly lol

  1. Hi, Lauren, I have followed you on twitter for a long time. I am just now reading "Love Sucks" and am fascinated. I haven't read any of the Vampire YA books but would love to. My choice would be "Before I Fall". I don't know...yet...how I would live the last day of my life if I knew it was the last day. This sounds like a great give-away. Betsy

  1. Hi, Lauren! Awesome giveaway.
    Well, at the moment my favorite YA book is Hush, Hush. It was my first Fallen Angel book and I'm completely in love about it. Patch is so misterious (and Hot, I must add) and Nora seems like a common/real girl, you know, she makes me think "Oh, I know someone like her! or I'd do the same thing".

    I follow your blog.
    And I follow you on twitter. (@lyagama)


    Thanks! :)
