I'm going to be honest. I had planned to do a lovely post discussing the merits of YA fiction vs adult fiction but in the craziness that it the end of term my brain has turned to mush. I'm hoping after a week or so of sleep and a few days of doing nothing school related it'll go back to normal.
So in the interest of being lazy I am going to point you to these two articles on Strange Chemistry's blog (New YA imprint coming from Angry Robot in 2012)
The first is here which is a post featuring some bloggers favourite books of 2011 in which I talk about the awesomeness which was Ruta Sepetys Between Shades of Gray.
The other is a post by Amanda in which she talks about what YA fiction is which I found really interesting. Find it here
