I like YA fiction a lot, and read two books yesterday that fell into that category.

One was Vampire High by Doug Rees. This was a loan from [livejournal.com profile] teratomarty, who had it out of the library. Okay, the title is cheesy. The book could've been horrifyingly cliched, but it wasn't. It was cute, and not predictable, and very funny in places. Four stars, since I had to go back and immediately re-read the ending.

The other was Are All the Giants Dead? by Mary Norton. This was one of the only books listed for [livejournal.com profile] starkeymonster in LibraryThing in both the categories Fantasy and YA fiction that I hadn't read, so I read it. It was amusing but not super-special. Three stars.

It's probably clear that I've read a lot more than 50 books this year. I might keep track next year in the subject line - it's a little hard to count them, going back.

Have you read the John Bellairs books? I am really enjoying them right now.

Those are so deeply fabulous. I'm working on either digging up the ones I had as a kid or rebuying them (only the ones with Gorey covers are acceptable to me though).

Also also, Bunnicula is such a great series.

Yes, I have. I liked the first few a lot, and then I read one that creeped me the fuck out, so I stopped. (I think it involved possessed spectacles...) I think I was ten or twelve at the time. It might be interesting to re- read them.
