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.

  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.

  7. Great list! I've really enjoyed all of Adele's Five lists on her blog and across the blogosphere.

Angie's Best Books of 2016

Let's just lay our cards on the table, shall we, and agree that, on the whole, 2016 was an abysmal year.
And I'd just like to personally invite it not to let the door hit it on the way out.
This is me being as charitable as I can possibly be at this point. 
That said, I want to send a glorious shout out to the wonderful books that have come out this past year, and to all the authors (and readers) who have not given in to the anxiety, depression, anger, and fear that I know so many of us have felt throughout the past twelve months (or more). It is the last day of the year, and I have poured all of my gratitude (and hope for a better one to come) into my annual list of my favorite reads of the year. Just 17 this year. Fewer than the past few years, which indicates a healthy dose of necessary rereading in this year that has been what it was, as well as the fact that I just didn't get to as many new releases.

Cover Reveal + Q&A: A Season of Daring Greatly by Ellen Emerson White

As longtime readers of the blog know, I am a full-fledged Ellen Emerson White fangirl and have been for something going on time immemorial. What this means is that a few years ago, having just finished reading my local library's copy of The Road Homefor the second time in as many days, I sat on the couch, brandished the book at my newlywed husband, and told him I was seriously considering never returning it (my conscience did eventually kick in and I meekly returned the library copy—after managing to procure a copy of my own, naturally). 
What this means is I went on to purchase an obscene number of out of print copies of the same title(before it was available as an e-book) and proceeded to send them winging their way across the globe to homes where I knew they were needed. 
What this means is that I refer to Ms. White's characters by their first names in casual conversation (pretty much on a daily basis) with friends and family members, and they automatically know exactly wh…
