I will be back to reading books featuring characters who are old enough to drink beer. Not that age is stopping some of the high school protagonists in the various novels I have been reviewing for the Ledger.

Although I’m feeling fairly saturated with YA fiction at the moment, I’m pleased. I’m glad that there’s so much good, new stuff out there to support my writing multiple YA roundups. I know I’m missing some good ones, too. And that makes me even happier. I’m glad there are writers writing for and about teens, and paying good attention to plot. I am also glad that there’s so much more well written and well plotted speculative fiction out there than there was when I was a kid.

I guess that’s one good thing Twilight has done. Opened the playing field for more supernatural or horror fiction for teens. Though I’d prefer to credit Harry Potter, than give any praise to the sparkly vampires, personally.
