Due to last week’s need to get off social media, I didn’t pull together the posts I’d written on Book Riot over here on Friday. I also decided to take a much-needed writing break at Book Riot this week, so all of these pieces are from last week. Not that that really matters!
This week, I put the finishing touches on the first YA Quarterly Box for Book Riot, including writing a letter to subscribers about the contents and why I chose them. That was a blast. I hope anyone who subscribed finds the picks to be exciting, fun, and perhaps even surprising choices.
Coming up next week is Stacked’s second annual “About the Girls” blog series. It’s fortuitous timing, but it’s been in the works for over a month now, and the guest posts from a variety of authors and other industry folks are outstanding. The introduction will go up this weekend and you’ll get the chance to enjoy nearly two weeks of great, thought-provoking posts on girls, girl reading, and feminism.
Onto the posts at Book Riot:
- For 3 On A YA Theme, I highlighted 3 books with awesome black teen faces right on the cover.
- These two posts rounding up literary and bookish Final Jeopardy! answers took me five months to put together. But they were a blast, and I hope anyone who is a fan of trivia enjoys these. Part one and Part two.
- I took on the “Buy, Borrow, Bypass” feature and talked about three recent YA books that feature diverse teen girl duos. They’re all absolutely worth reading.
