I felt like picking up a good YA last week, so I emailed good friend and bookstore owner JG for recommendations. She suggested two titles: Marie Lu's "Legend" and John Green's "The Fault in Our Stars".
I started reading "Legend" and couldn't put it down. It's definitely a page turner! It's very action-oriented; it takes place in post-apocalyptic Los Angeles; it's a modern version of Les Misérables. I like all those elements combined.
Finished the book last night, and I look forward to Book 2, releasing Jan 29, 2013 (My birthday!) :)
