I Heart YA Giveaway Hop

Okay, I kinda lied. I said I was going to do this later in the week, but everyone else in the hop is getting their post up today. Soooo, I'm going to go against my routine (which is already driving me nuts thanks to Lor's story w/ my characters that we both posted on our blogs today. lol) and post the hop today so people doing it today don't miss out on my give away.

I love YA, like love, love, love it! If asked to choose a genre it's the first one to pop out. I'd easily pick a YA over a romance any day. While YA does deal with tough issues, I like YA because it's relaxing and I often get swept away in the world the author creates in the pages. Anyone can read it too. Adults or young adults. It's very versatile. Which is probably why I like to write it too.


 
This hop is hosted by For Those About to Read, Fictional Distraction, and Michelle Madow.

Thanks so much for an awesome blog hop and don't forget to check out the list of participants and enter to win in their giveaways. For my giveaway, I'll be offering up my writing partner's debut novel, Near Death. Giveaway ends February 20th.

  11. I like YA because it is usually innocent. It shows 2 people meeting and their journey to learn about each other. Adult usually starts by being past friends and is never innocent! thanks for the giveaway!!

  12. I really enjoy YA, I got into this genre because of my 14 year old granddaughter who loves to read. I wanted to make sure that this genre was okay for her to read, most of it is, and then after reading a few I decided that I enjoyed them also:)

  17. I love YA because it's usually compelling to read. It's got some really great protagonist, especially with characters that are coming-of-age and it's just easy to sort of get a feel for them because I'm a young-adult myself!
    They're also easy to read and just a lovely escape from life!

    Thanks for the giveaway! :-)

  24. I am 29 but I tend to cringe when I read adult novels because of the language and sex. I like YA because, although there may be some words and some sex, it isn't explicit. Well, for the most part. There are always exceptions. I appreciate that. I don't like to be embarrassed while I am reading. It takes some of the enjoyment away for me. Unless it is just a part of the story.

  25. I like to read YA because sometimes I'm just looking for a quick read. Most of the time (not always though) you can move through the books faster. Which is nice. Because sometimes that's all I have the time for. Yet I can still get my reading fix. (Nikki Marie on rafflecopter)

  31. YA is fast-paced and always seem to explore areas that adult fiction can't. I find the adult section of the bookstore to be always bland and lifeless. YA, on the other hand is lively and viberant.

  32. I like the fact that with YA I can read it and share it with my friends daughters and not have to worry that their parents would not agree with the content...
