    April 2011 Recommended Reading List

    [image=http://www.foreveryoungadult.com/wp-content/upload/2011/03/Dark-Stormy-Snoopy.jpg]

    Hello and welcome to this month's Recommended Reading List! We've got a wide range of selections for you to peruse this month, so there should be something in here for everybody. Every story on here is worth a read, though.

    Enjoy!

    This an old humor fic that was something of a cult classic back in the day. It is a series of scenes from the original trilogy written as internal monologue between Darth Vader and Anakin Skywalker and I think it?s one of the funniest things I?ve ever read. My RL BFF and I read it way back when and still quote lines from it almost ten years later.

    One of the many, many stories relating to oqidaun's sprawling saga of the Dakari sector, and one of the few to land in Before, this is a very serious and spooky response to an intensely silly challenge. It features Obi-Wan and an original Jedi character simply called 'Blank Slate' by those around him, and is a truly wonderful look at someone who was utterly destroyed by war, though he kept on living.

    Sometimes I'm not in the mood to read something long but I still want the range of emotions that a longer story can give you. Under the Little Dome is an adorable one-shot with Luke, Mara, Ben and Artoo that gives quite a few laughs and most importantly leaves you with a wonderful, heart-warming feeling. When I need a pick me up story that makes me smile and feel good, this is one of the stories I go to.

    Back in the day, long before I knew there were boards with actual stories and writers to help feed my Star Wars addiction, I spent a lot of time on the Fanfic Archives. I found this amazing author there, and one thing led to another until I found these boards. (There was a busy reading day!) I blame this story for ultimately inspiring me to write my own stories here. Brief summary: Obi-Wan and Padme are locked in a cell by Anakin/Vader, and left there. This story has amazing descriptions, great characterizations, and a gut-punch of a story line. It is the kind of story you want to share with others after you finish it, so I'll share it here.

    For Doctor Who, going anywhere and meeting anyone is possible. With this story, Idri takes that time honored tradition and runs with it in a most spectacular fashion. When the Eleventh Doctor, Amy, and Rory, travel to Regency era England, they meet none other than Jane Austen - who happens to be suffering from a rather alarming case of writer's block, and a rather tricky problem with a not so local race of aliens. This story is brilliant for its ability to weave together history and science fiction - Jane's voice is fabulous, and her character is richly developed throughout the story. At the s

    Well, of course you'd be excited, Mar. I did write it specifically for you, after all. :p

    (But I am honoured, Mira, that you would mention it! :* )
