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.

Review | To Sir Phillip, With Love by Julia Quinn

The first book to make it onto my best books I've read so far this year list was actually a surprise. Thanks to Bridgerton's massive success, Julia Quinn's name is everywhere these days. And I'm chuffed about the whole thing. That said, my Quinn reading up to this point has been sporadic at best. And I'd only read two novels in the actual Bridgerton series. So I decided to rectify that at the beginning of the year by starting with Eloise's story (the fifth in the series) because she is my uncontested favorite of the siblings. I had no idea what her story held, but I knew she would be a compelling lead. I also love the title and the role that letters play in the story.   Eloise Bridgerton is tired of everything. She is tired of the endless inane whirl of life among the ton. She is tired of being paraded around and forced to dance and converse with all the wrong men. But most of all she is tired of being suddenly and unexpectedly alone after her best friend Penelo

Angie's 2021 Must Be Mine

 It's like I don't want to curse anything by saying too much about my hopes for 2021. But I have zero problem talking about the upcoming books I'm excited to read. And so here are my most anticipated novels of 2021: And no covers yet on these, but I'm looking forward to them just the same: Neverland by Meagan Spooner Subtle Blood by K.J. Charles Devil in Disguise by Lisa Kleypas Which titles are on your list?

Blog Tour Review | Breath Like Water by Anna Jarzab

Today, I'm happy to be taking part in the blog tour for Anna Jarzab's Breath Like Water courtesy of Inkyard Press . You are likely familiar with my love for sports and sports-themed novels (may the Giants play again soon). So I was intrigued by both the lovely cover and the concept of an elite swimmer who peaks quite young but is still determined to claw her way to the Olympics.   ABOUT THE BOOK This beautifully lyrical contemporary novel features an elite teen swimmer with Olympic dreams, plagued by injury and startled by unexpected romance, who struggles to balance training with family and having a life. For fans of Sarah Dessen, Julie Murphy and Miranda Kenneally. Susannah Ramos has always loved the water. A swimmer whose early talent made her a world champion, Susannah was poised for greatness in a sport that demands so much of its young. But an inexplicable slowdown has put her Olympic dream in jeopardy, and Susannah is fighting to keep her career afloat when two importan
