Persnickety Snark February Wrap Up

It's been a great month and I feel like I got a whole heap achieved. Here's everything that's gone down here at Persnickety Snark.

Allie (Just Listen), Lisa (Look at that Book) and I united to create the AYA: Aussie YA Alliance. A place where we could channel our Australian pride in all areas of YA literature. We are about to launch the blog properly from tomorrow with a focus on Justine Larbalestier's How To Ditch Your Fairy (kindly supported by Allen and Unwin). We will be posting our reviews, having Justine over for a chat and host a HTDYF book club throughout the week. Make sure you follow the blog so as to keep updated. We have lots of great ideas that have been in the works for a month now and we would love for you to be involved.

I started the Soundtrack Saturday meme which has started slowly. Thanks to Carrie, Renay, Jordyn, Lenore and Jenny for jumping on board. Hopefully more will too. I love hearing about how music relates to a book, it makes me want to read it immediately.
