Follow Me Friday
Thanks to Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read for hosting this weekly meme, Follow My Book Blog Friday, so book reviewers can hop to each other's blogs.
How have your reading habits changed since you were a teen? or If you are still a teen what new genres are you in love with currently?
I actually read more now then I did when I was a teen. I loved books but didn't have as much time or desire to read them. It helps that I teach English. I'm fueled by not only my love for YA but also by the desire to recommend books to my sophomores so they see the value in it. Life's not all about TV:)
Back in high school, I mostly did required reading for school- so, a lot of classics. In early high school, when I wasn't trying to finish Jane Eyre or A Handmaid's Tale before before school started (both required reading list options), I read Sweet Valley High (though only a few of the college years), Nancy Drew books, and anything by Lurlene McDaniel (always tragic, but beautiful love stories!) I also liked Caroline B. Cooney. I also remember a lot of Babysitter's Club if we go back farther.
I used to read contemporary YA, and now I read that and more dystopian YA. Also some religious adult fiction when I need a change.
