As a YA librarian you've gotta be careful how you say that word. Also you must enunciate when recommending SHIP BREAKER by Pablo Bacigalupi.
A couple of weeks ago in a guest post on Chasing the Crazies, I shared my non-psychic librarian abilities and said that I thought Sci-Fi might be the next big thing happening in YA. I've had some time to think about it since then, and I believe that there might be another fish in the sea who has the capability of reaching Leviathan proportions in the near future.
Yeah, it's horror. Books like Kendare Blake's ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD are starting to reclaim shelf space in the stores. I think ghosts might be getting the upper hand back over the beasties. And I'm totally ready for that. A good ghost story, be it a slow-paced nail biter or a cringe-inducing gore splurge is always something I'm up for.
What about you? Are you ready for some good old-fashioned ghost stories?
