Hello, everyone! August turned out to be a pretty crazy month! I started school, saw an eclipse, and lived through one of the most catastrophic hurricanes in US history. I'm hoping that September might be a bit more calm, but what will not be slowing down is the blog and my effort to make it the very best it can be. After seven months of blogging, I'm getting a better feel for the best ways to deliver content to all of you and exploring more ideas for new content.
Recently, I changed the format for my Weekly Review posts to still give you two reviews a week, but publish them on Wednesdays and Sundays. I think this is the superior format, but what do you think? Also, I hope your following me on social media because that's a great place to find out about what's coming and get some behind the scenes extras. On Monday's I give an overview of the week ahead on Instagram and Twitter, and I commonly give first looks on Twitter about my upcoming articles and books I love.
Finally, along with providing the standard two reviews a week, I've started developing content for other book/writing/relevant articles to give everyone more interesting content. As you will see below, I already have two scheduled Spotlight New Release reviews which will be posted about a week prior to the book's release, and there are more in the works! I will also have the opportunity to go to a few book events with some phenomenal authors this month and the next which will share about, and I absolutely love writing editorials and opinion pieces to share with everyone so there will be more of those published in the coming weeks.
Week 24 Part 2: My Review of The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson comes out this Sunday.
Week 25: Part 1: Gem and Dixie by Sara Zarr review. Part 2: American Girls by Alison Umminger. Author Event Wrap Up: Katherine McGee.
Week 26: Part 1: Two Roads From Here by Teddy Stienkellner. Part 2: The Smell of Other People's Houses by Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock.
Week 27: Part 1: The Definition of Indefinable Things by Whitney Taylor. Part 2: The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli. Spotlight New Release: A Short History of the Girl Next Door by Jared Reck.
Week 28: Part 1: The Geography of Me and You by Jennifer E. Smith. Spotlight New Release: We All Fall Down by Natalie D. Richards.
This month (and the next's) showcase some of the best books I've ever read. These happen to be most of my summer favorites, actually, so if you're looking for new books to put in your back to school TBR, these will give some great options.
I found all of these books at my local library which is one of the best resources for any book lover, not only for the free books, but with finding great new and old releases. I would have never found some of these wonderful books without the great featured section curated by the Young Adult Librarians. If your library doesn't have a great young adult department, requesting books you'd like to read is a great place to start.
