Previous Shelfari Member...........I'm a mom of 2 and love YA paranormal. I find allot of adult books in that category are always a little off. I never used to like reading until about 5 years ago and now I have a new found love for book. I like books with interesting characters and a large diversity in them, I love it when there's a shocking twist and allot of action, suspense and thriller and moves along a decent pace. I'm not crazy about love stories but a little is always good. I like solid character building and emotions. But most of all there should be a good balance and when it comes to sequels it can not be the same story with a few changes here and there.
