Jennifer Bosworth: July podcast

Earlier this summer, we got to hang out with the lovely Jennifer Bosworth, author of Struck, at Vroman's Books in Pasadena. We had a blast talking to Jennifer about the role of cults in her debut novel, what she was like as a teen, and her relationship with the city of Los Angeles as a transplant from Utah.

We happen to think Jennifer's book is the perfect kind of book to pick up when you're in a reading slump-- it's high-concept, action-packed, and a fun read. What do you do when you're in a reading slump?

  1. Any time I'm feeling a bit off in my reading habits, I read one of Jim Butcher's THE DRESDEN FILES books. They always help get me excited about reading again.

  2. After reading a whole raft of teen angst in the YAs I recommend on BooksYALove, I grab a goofy/slapstick or historical fiction middle-grade book to get me back in balance.

    Some recent faves are Bo at Ballard Creek (historical, Alaska! by Kirkpatrick Hill) and A Tangle of Knots (whimsical, light magic, by Lisa Graff) - they remind me that the world is love and small delights, as well as the big problems faced by teens in YA.

  3. I always recommend John Green for getting out of a reading slump. Funny, engaging, easy to read, and touching. Everything a book should be!

  4. When I'm in a reading slump I pick up a book that totally appeals to me. Or something I've already read and love. Maybe a book with a swoony romance scene or just a laugh! Like the Paranormalcy books by K.White! Who I know you totally love :D

  5. It's been a long time since I've read a book that was the complete package, and Struck has it all. More intelligent and powerful than the average YA novel, Struck is an electrifying debut that hits all the right buttons.
