Random Updates and News

I get e-mailed about great things to share, so I thought I'd put them all in one big post.

-I was contacted by the YA Reader's Advisor (I love that title) from Evanston Public Library about an interview the library hosted with YA author
Ann E. Burg, author of All the Broken Peices. Check out the interview-and the teen blog/website. I love the site and hope I can get my library teen page looking as cool!

-The
Teen Fire Ning is hosting a Dream Up Your Own Romance Title contest in honor of the release of The Summer of Skinny Dipping by Amanda Howells. Have you ever thought of a genius book title, even before you came up with the plot? We’re launching another contest and a chance to win copies of The Summer of Skinny Dipping. It’s time to get lovey-dovey in the sunshine and share your original title for a summer romance novel!

-I love audiobooks, so when I found out about SYNC, an audibook community, I had to share!
SYNC is an online community that seeks to build the audience for audiobooks among readers 13 and up.
• Each week, SYNC will give away 2 FREE downloads--a popular Young Adult title paired with a Classic title that appears on Summer Reading lists--starting July 1 through September 1, 2010.
• SYNC is hosted at
Audiobook Community, a new social networking site for the discovery of audiobooks.
• Listeners can choose to join a conversation about these titles with authors, narrators, publishers, librarians, and other listeners. Listeners are not required to join Audiobook Community to follow the conversation on SYNC nor to download FREE titles from SYNC.


-Also, anyone who is heading to ALA and would like to meet up, let me know. I'm making my schedule and I'd love to hang out with YA bloggers/readers!

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Rating: 5/5 Stars Genre: Realistic Fiction Release Date: 2/26/2013 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Eleanor and Park are both misfits. When new girl Eleanor sits next to Park on the bus, they don't want anything to do with each other. But over the course of the school year, things change. It starts with comic books and becomes a friendship and a romance that the two will never forget. You never forget your first love. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Have you ever had a book sit on your shelf that you've heard so much hype about? And you think that books sounds like it would be right up your alley, but you're in a reading slump and you're afraid to give it a try unless it fails? I knew Eleanor and Park sounded like my perfect book, but I was in such an after committee slump that I even though I knew this book would help, I just didn't want to be disappointed. I should have known better because Eleanor and Park was perfect and everything that I had hoped it wou

Post Downton Abbey Reading List

Downton Abbey is over (with a shocking and frustrating ending!) and now I'm suffering Downton Abbey withdrawal. I've got a reading list full of books that I hope will satisfy my post-Downton Abbey cravings and I thought I'd share what's in my pile and get suggestions for other after Downton reads. Here's what I hope to be reading this year (a mix of YA and adult titles):                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  A couple Julian Fellowes reads:                And a few re-reads:                    Edited to add: What's on your Post-Downton Abbey reading list?
