Questions of the Week:
Blog Hop: Pick a character from a book you are currently reading or have just finished and tell us about him/her.
I recently read Lindsey Leavitt's Princess for Hire and Royal Treatment. The main character is Desi Bascomb. She's just a typical 8th grader from small town Idaho. Her mom may dream of Desi being a pageant beauty queen like she was, Desi prefers to spend her free time designing funny T-shirts and watching classic movies. She's not very popular and has the typical low self-esteem of a young teenager.
This all changes when she discovers she has magic potential and becomes a Sub for princesses who need a break. While she helps young princesses get through state dinners and deal with royal princes, she discovers that she is a strong girl who is able to stand up for what she wants. The Princess for Hire books are super-cute. I highly recommend them.
Follow Friday: Do you have anyone that you can discuss books with IRL? Tell us about him/her.
Hmm...yes and no. My dad shares my taste in books about history and some of the adult fiction I read. My mother and I read a lot of the same adult fiction books. I've pawned a few books like The Mortal Instruments series and White Cat/Red Glove off on my husband, making him a fan of both series. I have one friend at work who is really into Twilight so we had a squealing coffee break on Wednesday to discuss The Twilight Guide. Otherwise, I don't have anyone who is as obsessed with young adult books as I am.
