Armchair BEA: Work the Network (or Blogs & Things Online I Love)

Today was Interview day on Armchair BE. I had serious doubts about getting any posting done for Armchair BEA and was pretty sure I wouldn't be getting an interview prepared so I opted out of that. However, I am going to spotlight some blogs and other fun things online that I love!

*I love this quote & post by Rick Riordan. Somethings never change!

*This is another great article on the appeal of YA literature (even for adults).

*And another written by an "old" reader who loves YA.

*I follow a lot of blogs, I don't comment on near enough of them, but there are a few that I find myself wanting to comment on the most. Here they are:

Small Review: I just love her posts. She has only been blogging since last October, but I always find something interesting on her blog!

The O.W.L: I love Jill's reviews and she normally has a few real students review things on her blog. A must for middle grade books!

Book Dreaming: If you want inspiration for writing check out Shannon's blog. She always posts food for thought and has a great dialogue in her comments section.

Adult 4 Teen: This is a blog on School Library Journal where the author spotlights adult books that appeal to teenagers. I love reading about these books so I can recommend them to more mature readers at my school.

Forever Young Adult: These ladies are hysterical. I love that their reviews are book reports and that they play MASH with the authors they interview (not to mention their drinking games and Vampire Diaries recaps).

Screwy Decimal: my very favorite NY city librarian. She is hysterical on her blog and her tweets.

There you have it, some of my favorites.
What are yours?

  5. I love how you posted book-related things too! I'll admit that I'm not familiar with most of the bloggers you list. I will have to check them out when this week is over. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Aw, thank you so much :) I love your comments, so thank you very much for taking the time to leave them. The feeling is mutual. You're one of the few bloggers who *gets* the awesomeness that is The Penderwicks and it's such a good feeling finding another person who loves them as much as I do.
