#ArmchairBEA2014 Topic of Choice & Middle Grade/Young Adult

Armchair BEA

Since I get to choose the topic, I'm gonna shameless plug my topic. 
Memes.
Do you meme? Do you host a meme?

The Friday 56 has been my meme for almost 3 years. I was voted the torch, and was passed it from Tonya and Storytime With Tonya And Friends. 
The idea behind The Friday 56, is to share a bit of the book, from Page 56, and see if it suits your tastes. It is much like Teaser Tuesdays which I also participate in, but different as well.
It's a great resource for finding new books or even discovering old ones. It has a decent turnout too, so you are more than welcome to check it out or even join in. (Linky is open all week.)

Now let's discuss Middle Grade and Young Adult.
Seems I have read a ton, and am learning just how much adults can enjoy these books too.
Here are some of my favorites, in no particular order, but starting with middle grade books.

  1. I find many of these young adult books are very enjoyable. Blogging has opened my eyes to many genres I would have otherwise missed. Thanks everyone for sharing your books so I can go on the adventures with you.

  3. Juniper Berry's cover also attracted my attention (referencing one of the commenters). I also have been meaning to read a couple of the YA books you mentioned - I'm glad to know they are among your favorites!

  6. I enjoyed Ransom Riggs' book and looking forward to the film adaptation. Tim Burton is directing, so it should be good.

What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding.

As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see. 


REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

In the mythical continent of Westeros, several powerful families fight for control of the Seven Kingdoms. As conflict erupts in the kingdoms of men, an ancient enemy rises once again to threaten them all.

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
