I loved Tinkers, but it will be quite a leap of YA to get there. I read lots of YA when I first started my job (in a local indie bookshop) and was really impressed with the great writing, easy reading & creative plot developments.

But then suddenly, I hit the wall. They started to seem the same, to blend into one another. And I went back to adult stuff, esp classics to find a more satisfying read.

I occasionally go back (for a John Green) but I'm struggling to find anything else I like right now.

I'm going to read The Walking Dead for my graphic novel as Mr Books & I have loved the tv series and I figured that it would help me get into the genre.

Good luck :-)
