Reviews: Your Turn (Jill)
A few days ago, I was on Facebook following a thread concerning appropriate reading material, in particular YA fiction. If any of you have read any YA lately, sometimes it reads more like adult fiction--very adult fiction.
If that YA novel you picked up is for a younger family member, say a son or a daughter, you may be giving them more of an education than you thought. This is one of the reasons I'm a big proponent of reading what my kids read (but that's another blog post for another time).
Although I check reviews for my reading choices, I also use them for my youngest daughter. She loves graphic novels, but some of them have sexual situations, graphic violence, and other questionable content I know she's not ready for.
Because I usually buy books for Easter instead of candy (although a few jelly beans and chocolate bunnies may find their way into the baskets!), Goodreads and Amazon reviews have proven invaluable when I'm making my purchases.
