Whew! Time to step back and look at the first month of BooksYALove...
So many firsts = first posting on May 1st as WordCount's Blogathon2011 gets rolling. Followed by first book recommendation, first comments, first subscribers, first tweets - and lots of friendly feedback from fellow Blogathonners.
Most of my recommendations were for fiction books, with some cool nonfiction thrown in, all books that young adults (and young-at-heart adults) will enjoy reading, but might not find in the big displays at booksellers or on best seller lists.
Worth looking at again:
Scary books: Stolen and The House of Dead Maids
High school drama (but funny): Flawless and Ten Miles Past Normal
Futuristic books: Awaken and Across the Universe
Graphic novels: Smile and My Boyfriend is a Monster
Across the sea: Warriors in the Crossfire and Saraswati's Way
I have a big stack of books that I;ve read and just cannot wait to share with y'all, this summer I'm planning to post several new book recommendations every week (though perhaps not one a day), with occasional reflective musings and some guest posts that highlight "forgotten gems" of YA lit from earlier years.
So, grab a book and take your mind somewhere else this summer - you'll be glad you did! And let me know of any books that I need to read and recommend here, too.
