Note of the week: YA is on the upswing, covering 20% of the top 25 titles on the list. New this week, Stephenie Meyer's Illustrated guide of the Twilight Saga makes it's debut in slot #4, while Ms. Clare's new addition to the Mortal Instruments series, City of Fallen Angels, lands in the #9 position. I'm actually reading City of Fallen Angels right now - and so far, so good!
