YA Lit that Imitates Life: When Realistic Fiction is Really Just Awesome

Ah, even now as I continue my way through Meghan Shephard’s The Madman’s Daughter, as I anxiously await the arrival of the remaining Sweep series books via snail mail, and even as I count the days until the next interesting fantastical YA Lit book becomes a larger-than-life movie, I’m still impressed by the realistic aspect of some of these books. 513 more words

Book Recommendation: The Falconer

I have a serious case of wanderlust. I subscribe to many a website that offer deals on hotels. I watch Travel Channel like I’m getting my fix, and secretly wish I was Anthony Bourdain (who easily has one of the best jobs in the world). 403 more words
