puro vampires pa lang ang nababasa ko na YA, except for privileged by zoey mead. the tv show privileged was based on this stand-alone book. ok naman.

Hi sis, i searched zoey mead, puro joey mead ang lumalabas...then after further search ZOEY DEAN pala ang author ng How to Teach Filthy Rich Girls (where PRIVILEGED was based). :)  Would love to read that book.

^ haha. thanks for the correction. zoey dean pala.

i have her other stand-alone book - hollywood is like high school with money - but i haven't read it yet.

yung A-list series niya di ko na siguro papatulan. parang gossip girl pero sa hollywood naman.

Just finished the last book on Percy Jackson and the Olympian series. The Last Olympian is AMAZING! Super recommended! Read the whole series, you won't regret it. Percy is a GREAT hero, in the league of Harry Potter!

I also love YA books. I'd check out your recos. For me,  I love Sarah Dessen's work. Also Brandon Mull's Fablehaven series.

I'm into the 3rd book The Secret of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel.
the first is the Alchemyst, Magician and Sorceress...
Not sure if its falls on the YA, but its a good read...

^totoo, sana nga pinaglalaanan nila ng pera yung mga libraries sa'tin. Sana ini-encourage ang pagbabasa. Hindi kinukurakot lang. >:( Dito, ikaw na susuko sa dami ng books and options na pwede hiramin. Hehe.

currently  reading city of bones (mortal instruments #1) and i'm liking it so far.

before that, i read the luxe (luxe #1). tama yung description nila na parang gossip girl in the 1800's. kulang sa kilig pero hindi naman kasing dragging ng vampire diaries.
