Teenage Dream: How To Hone Your YA Voice Part Quatre

I know it's been a while since I've blogged about voice, but today I'm going back to my first love. Some of you might've read my Teenage Dream series, where I give tips on how to hone your YA voice. Well, as part of that series, I'm adding another post.

But not from me *grins*

You see, the ever-awesome Steph Bowe wrote a guest post over @ Randy Russell's blog. She gives similar tips on nailing YA voice, but I think she does a better job than me. That's why you should go here and read what she said. Trust me--it's really helpful. 

Especially since she's a teenager herself *bonus brownie points*

And since I'm currently on the lookout for TONS AND TONS of books to read this Christmas, tell me: which YA novels have you read and loved recently??


  1. I'm heading over there now, thanks for the tip! As for good books...I just finished Matched, very good. Another must read is Nightshade, I loved it!

  2. Yes!! I l-o-v-e-d Nightshade. And guess what? I'm currently reading Matched!! I think we're book-reading twins ;)

  3. Thanks for the link, I'll head over and take a peek. Good book wise...I just finished The Hating Game by Talli Roland. I've got Matched, Nightshade and Fixing Delilah to read. And next week I should be getting Anna and the French Kiss, The Last Sacrifice and You Against Me by Jenny Downham to come. Stupid snow delays!

  4. I just finished Matched today. It was AMAZING! I won an ARC of Delirium, so that's next, then I'm debating between Nightshade, The Marbury Lens, and Anna and the French Kiss.
