I am rereading New Moon because I read on Steph's website she asked all her fans to read it twice because the first time you read it you are rushing through it to get to the part when Edward comes back. I just finished the partial of Midnight Sun and next I am gonna reread Eclipse bc it is the BEST BOOK IN THE WORLD :mrgreen:

I just finished reading a swedish book called (roughly translated) "When angels die" by Andreas Roman. It was really good - and very interesting - but I don't think many christians would like it, unless they're very open to a different kind of view of God, the angels and the creation of the earth... It was actually rather strange.
Right now I'm reading "Love Life" by Ray Kluun.
"But what really happened? The answer is simple: the lovers survive and flourish. As long as there is a single copy, a solitary typescript of my final draft, then my spontaneous, fortuitous sister and her medical prince survive to love."

I'm 20 years old and will be 21 in less than two months. The majority of books I read are young adult. I sometimes read adult books, but usually only with a recommendation. I've found that I just don't get quite as lost in adult novels than I do in young adult. If you enjoy the books for younger people, it's perfectly fine to read them. At least your reading. My friends won't pick up any type of book at all. Anyway, just wanted to let you know that you're not alone. :)

And I'm reading The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong. Another young adult novel. It's pretty good so far. It's about ghosts.

Awwww thank you. I find myself drawn to young adult books, i just love the storylines and with some it makes me feel like im back at school and i love that feeling.
I feel the same way and it's funny that you guys are talking about it because I, in all honesty, had this discussion yesterday with my boyfriend. I'm 19 going on 20 and was in the book aisle at Target and was looking at the "Adult" fiction section and, try as I might to find something I like, I kept glancing over my shoulder at the YA books. After looking for about 30 more seconds at the adult books I very literally said "ahh who am I kidding?" out loud and turned to the YA books. I was instantly happier. The stories are just so much more fun, dark, chilling, etc. Right now I am reading "Masquerade" the second book in the "Blue Bloods" series by Melissa De La Cruz. I needed some more vampire storylines in my life so this is what I turn to in the BD wake. It's pretty good too--I would recommend it for those who are now coming off of their Breaking Dawn high and wish to read some more vamp-tastic stories. It's definitely not as good as any of the Twilight books but it's still a pretty good read. :D After this I'm on to "Uglies" by Scott Westerfeld. Woot and huzzah for YA books!!

I totally agree about the stories being more fun, for me adult books can get a bit boring. Young adult books are i wouldnt say easier to read but just more pleasurable to read.I love Uglies. I will have to check out Masquerade it sounds intresting.

Masquerade is pretty good. I read it awhile ago. The third one "Revelations" comes out on October 28th. Some other good vampire series are the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead and the House of Night series by PC Cast and Kristin Cast.
