Liz Durham | 58 comments Hi! My name is Liz. I'm a recent graduate of Montana State University with a degree in literature. I grew up in Kentucky, and now live in a really small town in western North Dakota.

I LOVE BOOKS! I read a lot of YA/children's lit, and I collect fairy tales and mythology. It's hard to get books here (Wal-Mart hardly has anything and the local bookshop = expensive), so I've been going to the library a lot and buying cheap books from the Salvation Army.

I would love new friends to discuss books with!

I like a lot of YA fiction as well - what're your favourite?"

i am not...well not slightly..I am just completely totally obsessed!
I was even checking books on the internet at work(during my last ten minutes of lunch)...but I blame my team leader for it!

Fiona......I have WAY too many faves for YA, but here are a few of the top:

The Farthest Away Mountain - Lynn Reid Banks (my absolute favorite book of all time)

A few other books that I love that are not YA:
