The Thirtysomething Teen: An Adult YA Addict Comes Clean
It seems like there are more and more articles like this one popping up about adults reading YA. It’s nice to know that the market for YA goes beyond teens, and that more adults are open to admitting that they like it too.
As I think most of you are aware, the new web series Emma Approved, brought to us by the folks who did The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, has arrived! I will admit, my first thought on Emma herself was that she is annoying, but she is supposed to start off a bit immature and presumptuous, and I trust the crew working on the project. They proved with LBD that they want their characters to grow. Knightley is perfect though, wouldn’t you agree?
I love Johnny Lee Miller’s portrayal of Knightley in the 2009 BBC production, and I think I’m going to love Brent Bailey’s portrayal just as much! I’m also anticipating meeting more characters: Harriet, Mr. Elliot, and Frank! I’m really looking forward to watching the series move forward!

And Speaking of Star Trek…
Check out my guest post on Kelley’s blog Another Novel Read, if you haven’t already, about elements from Star Trek Voyager I want to see adapted into a book! Even if you’re not into Star Trek, I think you’ll find it interesting!
