I grew up reading books like The Babysitter Club and The Boxcar Kids. Now I read Romance, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Dystopian and any mixture of these all depending on what my mood is. I love Stephen King, Michael Connolly, JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Jane Austen, JK Rowling, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs and many others.

Love You Hate You Miss You

Love You Hate You Miss You - Elizabeth Scott This was an emotional roller coaster. It wasn't a happy feel good novel. Lately, I have been reading some pretty serious YA. This was serious and depressing. But I think it was well written and a fantastic story. I like to see teens portrayed as they are, not just the good stuff, but the trouble the get into as well.

Amy was such a hard character to hate. Even as she hated herself. I didn't blame her and felt so sorry for her when Julia's mom did. Even more, I'm glad that despite her wanting to separate herself from everyone, that she was able to connect with someone, even if it wasn't who she though it might be.

This is the kind of novel everyone should read. Granted not everyone should love it, but I tend to really like the ones that tell a real story. It doesn't get more real than this and all the emotions, the pain, the grief is real. And the ending was beautiful. Sad, but very fitting. I found the ending to be just what the book needed.
