Ruined by Paula Morris

I said I would write some reviews for the three books I read in Cozumel (more like the airport terminal), but had some time on my hands and created another booktrailer. This will be out August 2009, so keep your eyes open for them in bookstores. Who doesn't like a good ghost story set in New Orleans?
Enjoy!!

Three books in three minutes....more to come!

Malice
Remember Stephen Kings Creep Show? Very similar, but for young adults. This is the first true graphic novel/book fusion Ive come across. Excellent read, and cant wait to get my hands on the next one!!!

Ruined
Meet the young adult contemporary to Anne Rice. New Orleans, ghosts, curses and teens....this will be one that will be hunted down in the library and never seen again.

Crash into Me
Four teens on a suicide trip, but will it end that way? fast-paced and a great first novel for first time author!

Ill do more reviews on these in the days to come and add covers as well. Right now Im about to set off for some snorkeling on the Playancar Reef in Cozumel. Having a BLAST with my family!!! Cozumel...cant beat it!

Answering questions on "questionable" books...

This article was sent out through the listserv today, and after reading it, I thought it was ripe for discussion.
What makes this such a great online article read is the author's take on dark YA and the comments from professionals, including heavyweight David Gill. So don't just stop at the article...read on....
