None of the major plot lines & conflicts were resolved; the books got to a word/page count and just…stopped. The reader is clearly supposed to buy the follow-on volume to continue the story.

Nope. I enjoy sequels and series but I’m not going to buy half or a third of a book.

I always watch your reviews. But I have been tied up with other reading. I definitely want to read False Princess especially since you say there is an HEA.

As it happens, I’ve read a lot of debuts this year, as well as many YA novels. I think some of the best books published today are in this genre which is why so many adults seek them out. I have many fairy-tale themed YA novels in my TBR pile, and for some reason haven’t gotten to them yet.

I liked The Hunger Games trilogy, which I just read this summer, though I was disappointed that the romance petered out in the end. Somewhere I read that Suzanne Collins may continue the series, which is good news. Also the previously mentioned Matched. Other titles of note are Divergent by Veronica Roth, Stork by Wendy Delsol, and The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Lynn Carson.

It’s a bit younger than YA – more middle grade than TA – but I could read it any time. These books look interesting, and in the vein of Ella Enchanted. Thanks for the recs!

Book Two, Crossed, comes out in November. I would read Matched and see if you like it, then order Crossed. I have not read the Goose girl books but plan to.

Have you read “The Goose Girl” series? I think it’s phenomenal.

Also, I know you’ve read some romance debut authors like Hope Ramsey. Do you see a big difference between debut authors and those who are more experienced?
