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?
