They're super easy to shop for, if only I had all the money in the world! They read like I do. The two UF fans swap books back and forth and go through boxes of stuff in no time. It's maddening. What's worse, they read it so fast because they prefer it to homework (who doesn't) and then I get fussed at!
I spend hours trolling the internet for teen stuff likeRachel Caine's Morganville Vampires, Melissa de la Cruz's Blue Bloods, Stephanie Meyer, Amelia Atwater Rhodes, PC Cast, Melissa Marr, and I don't even know what else at this point. I've even started sending them the adult stuff, Rachel Vincent, Vicki Pettersson, Kim Harrison, and Jeanne Stein.
I get random calls with urgent instructions to buy certain books for them (have I mentioned I live 4 states away?) at all hours of the day. I have a box here for them now with a whole slew of new ones: Laurel K. Hamilton's first one, Shana Abe, Jennifer Armintrout, Kelley Armstrong...
Fortunately, I'll be visiting the home fort soon and that means book shopping with mom - in addition to the stack of titles I plan on coming home with, we'll have to do some browsing for the JJs. I mean, after Tuesday, it is officially summer for them, too!
BTW, if you have any suggested titles that the JJs just HAVE to read, let me know. They probably already have them, but I'm always keeping an eye out. I practically have to buy duplicates of all of my own urban fantasy titles just to keep them happy.
