It seems like books classified as ‘Young Adult’ often get a bad rap. It is easy to dismiss young people as naive and idealistic, and sadly, many do, but I often find teenagers to be well informed, engaged, and that they offer an interesting perspective. And the stories written for, by, and about this age group, are no less meaningful and important. Here are a few of my favourite young adult novels:
Continuing with my Friday Favourites series, I’ll be discussing my favourite novellas:
Novellas fall roughly in the same category as shorts for me; something I hadn’t really read a lot of before the past year or so. Still, the genre has grown on me, so here are several of my favourites:
Tobin and his friends are thrilled when they discover a magical vessel containing an Enchanted Entity, during a magical studies field trip. But they soon discover that the genie is much more than they can handle! As the students do their best to accommodate their difficult guest, someone at the castle is conspiring to use the genie’s power for their own purposes. Can Tobin and his friend find the culprit, and protect the troublesome genie before it’s too late?
The cover art for this novel was created by my very talented friend, Kat Long-Jones, and I’m so pleased with how it looks! I’d love to know what you think about it. Tell me in the comments below!
Magician’s Malarkey is available for pre-order at all major ebook retailers!
Welcome to the March edition of Reading Rachael! This month’s genre has been a long time coming for me – I’m reviewing Robert Jordan’s epic fantasy series, The Wheel Of Time!
Continuing my new series ‘Reading Rachael‘, I decided to read something in the Young Adult section for the month of February. Again, I was highly ambitious and chose a trilogy, but with several Sunday afternoons devoted to reading, I was able to finish all three novels!
