Armchair BEA 2013: From Picture Books to Young Adult

Armchair BEA

Day 5:  From Picture Books
to Young Adult

Day 1 was a total blast for me with Introductions.
Day 2 was about Blog Development and Fiction
Day 3 was about Literary Fiction. It was also a giveaway day – don’t miss my post, I have 4 books for grab open until the end of Armchair BEA!
Day 4 was about Ethics in Blogging and Non-fiction
Day 5 is also about Keeping it real, fresh, and fun



Day 5 genre is Picture books and YA.

Having neither young children, nor teens, nor grand-children, and having some grey hair, these are not my most common books to read. But I do occasionally read a few YA and even this year, thanks to book blogging, started reading a few picture books.

Here are a few reviewed here I would like to highlight. You can access my review by clicking on the book cover:


secret garden Humming Room


Chu's Day Flotsam


The Age of Miracles anishing of katharina linden

  2. I didn’t know Age of Miracles was YA! I will check it out. My favorite on your list is The Secret Garden, but my all time favorite is Dr. Seuss. Happy Reading!

  5. I’ve been meaning to get Chu’s Day for my nieces but haven’t yet! I liked The Secret Garden! I didn’t really get into Age of Miracles. The Vanishing of Katharina Linden and The Humming Room both sound like something I need to check out!


    • Helen Grant [the vanishing…] has written a few good books [], though i don’t think her latest has arrived yet in the US! she’s in the UK. Chu’s Day is really really beautiful, and fun!
