You're The Expert: Recommendations

So, I was flying home on Wednesday and I was finishing up Carpe Corpus by Rachel Caine (which took me an obscene amount of time to finish, btw) and all of these people kept asking me what I was reading (I counted six in the airport and four on the plane for a total of ten). Don't get the wrong idea here, I love to talk books with people. And it seemingly never failed that after I say, "Yeah, READ THESE!", that same person asked me, "What other YA vampire novels are out there that you would recommend besides Twilight?" (Obviously the publishers are missing a mark here by not catering toward adults!) It seems that whenever I'm caught reading in public, (even if I'm not taking pictures and submitting them to a contest) I am asked these questions about whatever genre I'm reading.

What I Heart Monster Wants To Know:

  • Does this ever happen to you?
  • Do you have a select few books that you recommend to people for a certain genre?
If yes...
  • What's the genre and what are they? (multiple genres and lists encouraged!)
  • Has this set changed in the last year?
If no...
  • What do you tell people who ask you for a recommendation?
(You're the Expert has now moved to Saturdays!)
