It is only halfway through 2017, but are there any releases for 2018 that you are already anticipating? Perhaps it is a sequel to something you’ve read or a debut you’ve been hearing buzz about.

#YABkLove Day 27: Older Titles #TBT

For today, I’d like to see titles that you read more than 5 years ago, maybe more than 7 years ago, that are still worth attention. In the library world, teen books start being considered obsolete after 5 years unless they are actively circulating, so what books would be past that time but still worthContinue reading “#YABkLove Day 27: Older Titles #TBT”

What books get you rolling with laughter? It takes a lot for a book to really make me laugh out loud but I’m always open to suggestions of funny books. One that has been recommended to me over and over again as hilarious isĀ Angus, Thongs, and Full Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison. What other funnyContinue reading “#YaBkLove Day 21: Laugh Out Loud”

#YABkLove Day 19: Leading Ladies #WCW

Who are the women in Young Adult fiction that stand out to you long after you close the book? Who is your Woman Crush Wednesday? You can like them for any reason. Bad ass ladies that fight for themselves like Katniss Everdeen or sweet and kind. Maybe you like sneaky, smart chicks. Whatever your reasons,Continue reading “#YABkLove Day 19: Leading Ladies #WCW”
