Road Trip Wednesday – Real Life Young Adult Readers


I’m excited to start participating in a Blog Carnival that YA Highway created called Road Trip Wednesday’s, where they post a weekly writing or reading related question for bloggers to respond to. This week, they ask, “What IRL people can you talk to about YA?”

The people who I can talk to about anything related to young adult would probably be my fellow young adult readers I know – my friends and family.

My cousins are very avid readers, and have many times suggested books to me. We have similar reading interests, and are always looking for new stories to read. They have suggested numerous books to me, like Kelley Armstrong’s “The Darkest Powers” series, which I am obsessed with now! :)

My friends in particular read a lot as well, most of them obsessing over the same fandoms as me (ex. The Hunger Games and Harry Potter). My friend seems to mention a Hunger Games reference in my American Literature class every day, shouting things like, “It was all for the games!” “The Hunger Games movie was amazing!” “Jennifer Lawrence is so hot!”.

My sister hides in her room most of the day; getting lost in a book. She’s a very good source to get information from about the latest trends of what young readers are interested in, since her friends seem to talk about fictional stories nonstop like they were real. But, who doesn’t?

  1. Hi, am I talking to Mark's daughter Alison? My daughter was in IB as well, and went on to get her degree in English at the U of A. A great reader, also.
    I've written a YA Sci Fi book called SpaceHive that will be out soon in ebook and print formats.

  2. I can talk to Jon Bard from Children's Book Insiders about YA readers. That is an awesome site for only the price of a latte per month. He also replies by email and there are all kinds of YA authors on there to answer our questions! I'm proud to be a Fightin' Bookworm. You might also mention Young Authors Literary Magazine, Allison, or WovenMyst Young Adult Magazine. All are excellent, and Young Authors Literary Magazine is written by teens as far as I know.
    The Hunger Games was an awesome book, haven't seen the movie yet. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the trilogy on my Kindle. You too?
