[quote=""xiaotien""]divia, i got your PM and i hope
you got mine. i need to link your blog!
i didn't read a lot of YA before -- i didn't
realize i had written YA until i tried to
find an agent. live and learn. =)
so i've been delving more into the genre--
very different than what i grew up with.

twilight is so compelling.

my novel is different, but i hope
also compelling in its own way.
thanks for asking more about it!

>confessions of an ugly stepsister
by gregory maguire

Sistah! As much as I loved his Wicked, I really liked this one. Its not as deep with so many layers, but what a good read. BTW try Mirror Mirror, a Snow White story with Lucrezia Borgia as the wicked step mother!

BTW, welcome!

julianne, i love your blog!

i got two book recs from you, michelle
moran's nefertiti and then i also
got the last queen off my wishlist
for my bday and i can't wait to read it! =D

ash, i found myself not interested in
picking up wicked. it was the cover that
drew me to the shelf, then i saw his
other books. and the ugly stepsister one
really piqued my interest. even tho it
was written in first person present, i really
enjoyed it. thanks for the rec!!

divia, i've linked ya!
