Q. "Let’s talk crazy book titles! Highlight one or two (or as many as you like!) titles in your personal collection that have the most interesting titles! If you can’t find any, feel free to find one on the internet!"

A. I think The Implosion of Aggie Winchester by Lara Zielin is kind of a crazy title; the name is wacky and "implosion" is just a fun word. I doubt I've seen any other title that includes it.  This is one question where I'm really looking forward to the other answers.


Q. "How have your reading habits changed since you were a teen?"

A. Interestingly I think I read more YA now than I did when I was a teen!  I'm also now less interested in mysteries than I used to be, except for the rare YA mystery.  Additionally because I became a Christian when I was 18, my reading now is more interested in religion in general than my younger self.

  3. Hopping through. The Implosion of Aggie Winchester is an odd title. I wonder how you can implode.

  6. This seems to be a common answer! That we didn't read YA as teens and do now. I wonder why that is.

  8. YAY for imploding!
    YA has definitely grown a lot over the past few years, but i'm definitely glad it has. How can they all write such addictive books?
    I agree with others when they say that everybody is pretty much saying they read more YA than they did as a teen, is there some kind of conspiracy i'm unaware of?
    Have an awesome weekend, and stop by if you can, i love meeting new people!
    Imo :D

  11. Hi (new follower)I read more YA now too. I think I thought I was too mature to read YA when I was a teen and now I can just enjoy a good story without having to justify the genre I'm reading.

    Here's my #FF

  13. I can totally see why you're reading more YA. It's improved so much. There are so many more genres, not just vamps and werewolves:D

  14. I easily came up with five crazy book titles just by taking a fast look at my bookshelf.

    All five come from the same book series. Can you guess which series it is?

    Here’s a hint – The book series is a trilogy in five parts.

    Hop on over to my blog for the answer – http://www.howardsherman.net

  15. I think that's so awesome! YA books are my favourite reads right now because they're just pure awesomeness, and I LOVE how they appeal to so much more than the intended teenage readers! :)

    Mystery novels are super cool, but I usually only tend to read YA ones, too. x)

    Yay for Follow Friday! I'm an old follower for sure!
