FIVE Great YA Bloggers

I thought I'd chime in today on Persnickety Snark's FIVE Challenge for 2010. Today's topic--YA Bloggers. Hm. Now that I look at it, my list is unsurprisingly veeeeery similar to Adele's . . .

The Crooked Shelf
Carla's enthusiasm is infectious and I never fail to smile within five seconds of reading her posts. Plus, she got to meet John Green in person and actually had him sign a copy for me and then sent it all the way across the pond. That's friendship.
Forever Young Adult
These women cover such a broad spectrum of topics in such a hilarious way. Most recently their charmingly nostalgic post on the Most Swoonworthy Scenes in Films About YA. Yay for Some Kind of Wonderful and 10 Things I Hate About You!

Obviously. I never like to go without my daily dose of snark, wit, ramble, and honesty. Adele, she comes through for me. She knows when to be blunt and when to squee. She also has markedly excellent taste in contemporary fiction and fictional men across the board.

See Michelle Read
Michelle's blog is a bright and sunshiney spot in my daily stops. She likes all kinds of books, isn't afraid to try something new, and won't hesitate to tell you exactly why a book sent her over the moon or looking for something to throw.
Steph Su Reads
Steph is "on top of the ball," as a friend of mine used to say. Reviews, discussion posts, you name it. Case in point today--her WTF Covers of 2010 post. Hehehe. So glad I'm not the only one who asks myself these vitally important questions.

Comments

  1. Forever Young Adult is absolutely fantastic! I love their FYA vocabulary and zealous YAngelism. Plus, I just can't read a FYA post without cracking up laughing.

  4. I recently started reading Steph Su Reads, and I love it!

    I have to tell you that I spent a significant amount of time over break reading the backlist of your blog (I'm weird and like to do that with new/newish blogs), and my TBR list has increased SIGNIFICANTLY. Thanks for all the good reading fodder! Love your blog!!

  5. Man oh man. I love you girlie!! You seriously just made my day with this post. You must know that *you* are the main reason I started reviewing in the first place and that I always try to stay honest just like you. And plus, half of the books I review are ones you've recommended to me in the first place ;) Can't go wrong with an Angie pick.

    Boy, do I wish we lived closer still! I miss you.

  6. You just made my year all the more awesome than it already was. Thank you so much for the mention, you do not even know how excited I was to be listed on a blog I have admired for WAY too long.

    Seriously, I feel like I should have a glass of champagne in my hand and like an award (preferably shaped like an Oscar) and have a speech or something because this is a total honor! Thank you so very much. The fact that you introduced me to Gen, Curran AND Pajaime with your enthusiam makes you high up on my list of favourite people.

    I herby confess, I never expected blogging would be this fantastic. YOU ROCK MY SOCKS.

The Year Fic Saved Me

Once upon a time, January came for us and proclaimed itself supremely uninterested in taking prisoners. Under the sustained assault, there were simply too many avenues of stress tearing into my brain. On one side of the field stood so many books (as they have always been there for me) ready to be read—to help. And on the other side loomed a distressing number of chasms inside me desperate to find solace and reprieve. But the two could not meet. No matter how many peace talks I attempted to broker.  In February, in a move so unprecedented that I can only describe it as a lifeline thrown down into the deepest of the chasms, my exhausted mind decided it would be a good idea to finally give fanfiction a whirl. Now, there's no getting around the fact that for someone who has read as many novels that involve fic in some way or another as I have—seriously, novels that began as fic, novels written by authors who got their start writing fic, novels about characters who write/illustrate/love
