#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.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
