Goodbye YA genre!

I have decided to switch my book focus from Young Adult to more Epic Fantasy/Historical Fiction/ Urban Paranormal. Why you ask? Im tired, I am tired of all the teen drama, the angst the mindless rabble and superficial thoughts that I find more and more in the genre these days. 

The world is coming to an end? OH NO! Johnny and I wont be able to go to prom! Really? THATS the priority right now? I left all that back in high school and I feel my tastes are changing, so my blog will as well. (not the layout just the content)

I Find i need Dragons, elves, orcs and adventure, swords and sorcery, mystical lands of ancient china and eygpt or the hard, gritty streets of LA packed with supernatural nasties to really get me interested now.

Not to say I will not be still reading the occasional YA, I have to keep up with Morganville vampires and House of Night of course! The YA reviews will just be fewer, unless I still get some to review. 

I hope you all stick with me and I hope you girls/guys can find some new genre, or new book that will catch your attention.

Legend of Witchrot Road
Author - E.J Stevens
Genre - Y/A Paranormal
Pages - 180

Description from Goodreads

 Surviving agitated ghosts, irritated witches, angry werewolves, and the horrors of high school has never been so hard.

 The night of Samhain may be behind them, but Yuki and her friends have only begun to face the challenges of their paranormal gifts. Tensions are rising--in the pack, at school, and within their tightly knit group of friends.

 The tragic death of Wakefield High student Dylan Jacobs has emotions boiling over. The J-Team, Yuki's arch nemesis, have turned the entire football team against her. They claim that Yuki is a witch and blame her for the death of their fellow teammate. Will Yuki be able to solve the mystery of Dylan's death, and the legend of Witchtrot Road, before tempers flare and things turn violent?

Yuki and the gang are back! Cal, Emma, Simon and Yuki are now looking into the death of Dylan, a kid from Yukis school who died on the legendary Witch Rot road. Why is it so important? Because, the J-team (a duo of jocks) has convinced the football team that Yuki is the one who killed Dylan! She must clear her name right? Of course.

What started out really great quickly turned into teen angst tedium. Action? Not so much, mostly the third book in this enthralling series is about relationships and a really messed up mob mentality. We are introduced to a new member of the wolf pack but hes a spoiled brat and I really do not care for him. Most of the questions (okay all) that I had from the last book were not answered like: Whats up with Emma? I really want to know! There was just not enough information or suspence this time around.

 Another thing? I am rather tired of hearing how hot and perfect Cal is, we get it, Yuki you are totally smitten with your amazing werewolf soul mate.. but we do not need to hear about it every chapter. While I feel this book was a pretty bad letdown, I still want to read the next book, I am dying to find out what is going on between Emma and Simon, and to see if Yuki returns the amulet to the Salem witches.
