TGIF is a weekly feature created and hosted by GReads! that re-caps the week’s posts and has different question each week.
This week’s question is: YA Saves: How do you feel about the “dark” books filling our YA shelves today?
There are many things being said on this topic, and said way more eloquently than I’m about to put it: I believe they can help many people in different situations. They can also be eye openers to many of us. And while, yes, there are a lot of “dark” books out at the moment, there’s also plenty of other YA genres people can read if “dark” books are not for them or their teens. Reading about how you couldn’t find one book at B&N; that wasn’t “dark” is such an exaggeration. Be serious, lady. If you’d like to check out what others have to say on the topic, go to GReads! and check them out!

This week’s question is: The magic book fairy pops out of your cereal box and says “you and your favorite character (from a book of course) can switch places!” Who are you going to switch with?
I always dodge this question because I feel I couldn’t survive in any of the shoes of my favorite characters. I think this time I’m going to go with Elena Michaels from Kelley Armstrong’s Otherworld series. Elena is the lone female werewolf in this supernatural world. She is smart, strong, and has a sexy, hunky husband: Clay Danvers. Having him call me “Darlin’” every day wouldn’t be too horrible. ;) They have a very deep relationship. From time to time she has to deal with dangerous individuals or situations, but not as many as other characters, which is a plus for me.
