“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

◦Day 16 – Your guilty pleasure book

As a genre, I still enjoy a number of young adult/teen fantasy series - Ranger's Apprentice, The Last Apprentice, Eragon, John Bellairs, and others of similar ilk. Despite the fact they are intended for a younger audience I often find the writing to be on par with "adult" series, and they are a nice escape when all I am seeking is to enjoy the story.

...boy I hope I don't regret this...(*Bimbo Alert!*)Cindy Gerard's "Black Ops" series. The romantic relationships aren't extraordinary, but the action/adventure is fast-paced and fun. Not too long or complex, no concentration required. Good fluff.

BTW, at my library, the series' you mention are checked out by adults as often as by kids.

Suz - as I haven't seen those I can't comment on them, so you are safe from my snark ;)

Yeah, you don't strike me as the 'trashy novel' type. Hypocrite that I am, I wouldn't be caught dead shopping for them in public, but when something intriguing crosses my desk, I can check it out when nobody's looking!
