Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Things I Want to Read More of In YA

This week I was lucky with the theme because once I decided to keep my list in the young adult genre, I was taking down notes like crazy. It’s like I struck gold, though some of the things I mention here I already discussed a few weeks ago, but I hope nobody minds. So here is a list of ten things I wish YA had more of.

Reading Wrap Up: April

Follow my book related Instagram @fangirlshideout

Another month has come and gone and I’ve kept up with my reading quite well! The second half of the month took a slow turn for me and then I got stuck on rereading A Court of Thorns and Roses. But I’ll finish it today and continue on with the second book while I’m dreaming of the moment A Court of Wings and Ruin finds its way to my hands. Anyway, slow second half of the month aside, I managed to be super good with reading at the beginning of April, so I still I have seven books to mention.

Reading Wrap Up: March

After a slow start to the month, I found some magical reading energy and powered through quite a few young adult romance novels by the end of March. It’s still quite sad to look at my reading list this year so far because there are clearly some strong reading slumps that I’ve avoided with easy reads. While there’s nothing wrong with easy-reads, I feel like I need to grab for heavier books and topics, and I need to finish a lot of unfinished series!

Reading Wrap Up: January & February

img_3435-2Well, 2017 has gotten the best of me. Just two months into the year and I’ve already fallen behind with my reading wrap ups. BUT, I do have a legitimate reason for this little combined wrap up .. I wanted to revamp these posts but realised I didn’t have the time to do so, and by the time I realised I should have posted my January reading wrap up, it was mid-February and it made more sense to combine these first two months. Also, heads up, it’s heavy with adult romance novels because I’ve had a rough couple of months and easy, breezy and sexy was all I wanted to read.

Reading Wrap Up: November

november-wrap-upIn the month of November I met my 2016 reading challenge – I’ve read 60 books, and by now I’ve hit 64 books. Only 2 of the books I’ve added into my reading challenge this year have been DNF’s (Did Not Finish), which I think is pretty good. Come to think of it, I rarely put books down, but when I do, I have many reasons to do so. But that being said, here are the books I read in the month of November, including one DNF, because I couldn’t be bothered to waste more time on it.
