Thanks to Nina for the graphic! Armchair BEA is an online conference for people that can’t attend BEA in NYC. Find more info at

Another late post but OKC has been insane the last few days! I’m pretty new to blogging so I don’t have much to say about keeping it real at this time.

Picture Books to Young Adult

I’ve always loved reading and when I was small, I consumed Dr. Seuss and Little Golden Books. I liked all sorts of nursery rhymes and fairy tales.


I read Goosebumps, Sweet Valley Kids, Bruce Colville. I was obsessed with the Animorphs series.

Anne of Green Gables is still one of my favorite books and I love the whole series. I loved The Chronicles of Narnia. I read Harry Potter for the first time in 2012 and fell in love.

I read a lot of YA! It’s mainly what I blog about. I love Anna and the French Kiss, Divergent, If I Stay and Where She Went, The Raven Boys, Daughter of Smoke & Bone, and the list could go on and on. A lot of YA is about new experiences and life lessons, which makes it easy to relate to and enjoy.

If we follow each other and I’ve missed your BEA posts, I’m going to try to catch up! There isn’t supposed to be severe weather in OKC for a while, so hopefully I’ll be better at keeping up with everything!

  1. LOVE the YA books you mentioned! I believe the only one I haven’t read is The Raven Boys. I know I’ve read Anne of Green Gables, and I know I liked it, but I can’t remember a SINGLE thing about the characters or the plot(guess it might be time for a re-read!). Otherwise I would have included it in my post too because I remember just absolutely loving them as a ten or eleven-year-old.

Comments are greatly appreciated and I try to reply to each one! I'm no longer accepting awards, but I appreciate the thought!
