A YA Thanksgiving

So I’m a day late to the party — curse you work, curse you!

However, Adele at Persnickety Snark had a super cool idea to spread positivity through the blogosphere by asking people to blog about why they love YA Blogging. I’m not technically a YA blogger, as I review adult books too, but thought I’d participate anyway.

For Those Without Video Capabilities:

  • I review adult books on occasion, yet still feel accepted in the YA community
  • I don’t get made fun of for my Harry Potter Snuggie (to my face)
  • Meeting authors
  • Twitter complaining
  • The Friendships
  • Glee — I discovered it through blogger tweets
  • How sometimes bad situations can be turned into something positive
  • How many new books I’ve been turned onto
  • Thank YOU for being amazing.

    What a sweet vlog! I loved this! 🙂

  2. Great post. I want a Harry Potter snuggie!!!!

    Also, did you know you are like super high on the top 100 blogger list on technorati!

  3. Heather (DarklyReading) says

    Yeah blogging! I didn't get a chance to watch your video but to go with your comments – I feel like book blogging has definitely increased my tbr pile for new books at least 10 fold – and I love it.. though my credit card perhaps not 😀

    I love this idea from Adele, so neat! And I love that there are so many of us that are all so accepting and supportive of one another. It's fantastic! Great post!

  5. Thanks for vlogging for this little community love event, April. I think we showed how people can behave when things go a little awry 🙂 Let us be the lovely example of YA love and bookish thoughts.

    Congrats on such a great job with the poll. I am so NOT looking forward to compiling my results. Might do my head in….got a wine suggestion to get me through? 😛

  6. Great post! I like that you made a vlog for it. 🙂 I'm thankful that Adele came up with this idea because I'm discovering more amazing blogs. I'm glad I found your blog, I'm going to add you now to my blogroll and Google Reader.

  7. Adorable vlog! This was so sweet! I wish I had known about this event before right now. I want to participate, too!

    I also love being accepted by YA bloggers even though I sort of review, well, everything. 🙂


  9. Aww awesome vlog! I'm so grateful to be a part of the book blogging community. Haha I would love to have a Harry Potter Snuggie! I just have a plain pink one, but I still love it 😀

    Too sweet. It's so amazing the people you can connect with through blogging. I've found so many people who share my tastes in books. I love it.
