If you like books like these: crime fiction for teens As someone who has been reading YA for years, long before I sat down to write a book of my own, it was less of a surprise and more of a relief to read that, according to a Bowker Market Research survey published earlier in the month, 55% of buyers of YA books are over 18. Why? I take it you're looking for an answer more profound than: because they're brilliant. It's easy to dismiss books for teenagers as books about teenagers. Yogurt & Poppy Seed Slaw Bet you thought you’d never hear from me again, huh? It’s been six, seven weeks since my last recipe (sorry)…but the important thing is that I’m here now and I’ve got a great one for you! But before we get into that, I should probably tell you where the hell I’ve been. It’s been a hectic, hectic couple of months.

66 Great Movie Taglines From the Past 30 Years We've combed through the last 30 years of movie marketing and selected our 66 favorite film taglines from that period. The cut-off of 1980 means we've left out what many consider the greatest movie tagline ever—"In space, no one can hear you scream," Alien, 1979—but there's plenty here to chew on. Berate us in comments for everything we left out. Learning To Read Alone Is Not Enough. Your Students Need A Reading Champion. I don't know about you, but... I did not become a reader because someone held me accountable for reading. I did not become a reader because someone offered me "points" or other incentives for the quantity of books or pages I read.

And I did not become a reader because someone forced me to complete reading logs, write book reports or create (and then reuse) the occasional diorama.

Quickfire interview: Eoin Colfer What is your favourite book? My favourite book this week is The Sisters Brothers by Patrick deWitt. It's a kind of literary Western - very gruesome and very funny. 20 Classic YA Literature Heroines, Ranked This week, The Book of Jezebel comes out, and you should order it immediately — which I say because I was one of its contributors but also because it’s great — a desk reference of every bit of feminist trivia you could want. In particular, I think it’d make a great gift for young teenagers who are still coming up and learning about feminist reads on popular culture. But let’s face it: no one starts with an encyclopedia, in evaluating these things; you start with the books girls are given as young’uns, and, troublesome lot that they are, those titles give you models of feminine behavior and independence to measure yourself against. It’s a testament to their formative importance that women, well into their adult lives, insist that these characters shaped the way they saw themselves and the world.

Distance from City Center: 1.4 km (0.9 miles), 15 minute walk Add to saved ads Author quote posters Being around a successful author would surely be exhausting and inspiring in equal amounts. As well as all that wisdom they put into their books, their thought-provoking one-liners would literally be falling out here, there and everywhere. So while you'd beat yourself up for not possessing even a smidgen of that kind of talent, you'd also be maniacally scribbling it all down for dinner party quoting. The rather smart Evan Robertson has created a set of posters that combine iconic author quotes with genius design work.
