Book Blogger Appreciation Week: First Treasure

As many of you know, today marks the first day of Book Blogger Appreciation Week.

To quote the website’s prompt of the day:

Let’s talk about that first treasure today.
For those of you who participated in BBAW last year, what’s a great new book blog you’ve discovered since last year’s BBAW?
For those you new to BBAW, what was the first book blog you discovered?
Tell us all about this blog and why you love it…why do you keep going back for more?

I happened upon this wonderful, wonderful blog in June, after meeting two of the contributors at BEA. One of my BEA roomies, Heather was all check this blog out, it’s got YA and drinking.  So of course I was totes checking that like white on rice. Within days an addiction was formed. This blog had everything I could ever ask for, book reports, BFF charms, drinking games, and witty repartee.

With a tag line like ‘for readers who are a little less Y and a little more A’, I am hooked on the Forever Young Adult blog. Y’all this is worth checking out if you like drinking and YA books.
