Today, as part of the Static Blog Tour, I have author Tawny Stokes here talking about some of her favorite young adult things. Also, keep reading for more info on this wonderful YA book (that I will soon be reviewing), and for giveaway information :)


A Few of My Favourite YA Things
I love to read YA books. They are usually all I read now. I find that I am always surprised when I pick up a new book. I don’t already have expectations like I would when I pick up a paranormal romance or urban fantasy these days. Yes, I have been disappointed by some YA books, but for the most part I enjoy every one I read. And it’s not just books, I love teen movies ever since I was a teen. Some of my favourite movies are teen oriented. I think basically I am still 16 living in a 40 year old form.
Here are some of my favourites:
Hunger Games (trilogy) – Suzanne Collins
Gone (series ) – Michael Grant
Devouring (trilogy) – Simon Holt
Matched – Ally Condie
Divergent – Veronica Roth
Unwind – Neal Shusterman
Before I Fall – Lauren Oliver
Delirium – Lauren Oliver
Forest of Hands and Teeth – (series) – Carrie Ryan

Easy A
Jennifer’s Body
The Faculty
The Craft
Breakfast Club
Valley Girl

Tell me about your favourite YA books and movies.



Be careful what you listen to....

During the summer before her senior year, 17 year old band groupie, Salem Vale, has been following her favorite punk rockers, Malice, from gig to gig hoping that one night she might get backstage and meet the sinisterly sexy guys. She’s been saving her virginity for the lead singer Thane. One fateful evening she gets her wish. It’s a dream come true.

Except the dream turns to a nightmare when she wakes up in a dumpster, tossed away like yesterday’s trash, with no memory of what happened the night before. She feels strange, different, as if something is trying to get out. Soon she realizes she’s changing…turning into something not quite human.

Now a hunger deep inside claws at her to feed, to siphon energy from those around her. Before she can do just that, Trevor, the band’s roadie shows up and stops her from killing. With his help she learns to control the hunger inside, because he’s just like her. And in return he wants her help to do one little thing…

Help him kill the members of Malice.
