All this talk about ARCs this week kinda bummed me out. None of us got into this YA reviewing gig to get free books (if you are, shame on you). We are here because we love YA. We love reading. We love the journeys that YA authors take us on. So this is my attempt at a mini challenge.
Before May begins I would like you to post reviews for 1-2 YA titles that -
1) were published more than five years ago,
2) hold fond memories, and
3) post the icon somewhere in your review.
I thought this might be a great way to direct attention to our sources of blogging inspiration, take the emphasis off ARCs and remember some oldies but goodies. What YA titles do you consider your classics?
My first one will be Meg Cabot's Teen Idol - her recent post on the television show Glee mentioned this book, which initiated my Meg adoration.
This is not meant to be a pimping exercise for my site. I don't expect you to mention or link me, just use the un-hyperlinked icon to identify your review as part of the challenge. Leave a comment if you are signing up for this mini-challenge of YA blogging positivity. Good luck!
**If this post promoting sunshine and rainbows was a little too sugary for you, traipse over to Khy's lovely post on hypothetical YA blogger revolt scenarios as inspired by Sarah Ockler.
