Finally! Signing Up for the Year of the Asian Reading Challenge #YARC2019

I find it ironic that it's taken me a while to sign up for the reading challenge that I myself am co-hosting, but also . . . I have a very busy blog schedule, okay? And nobody wants nine straight days of posts from me that is absurd (but happening in February so SORRY). Anyways, … Continue reading Finally!

On Classics, YA, and High School English: Why Teens Avoid Classics

With the whole "Book Opinion" thing on Twitter last month (if you were on near the holidays, you know what I mean), there's been a lot of hot takes on classics and the classroom and how they apply to modern teens.

Not only is Vicky an extremely outspoken and eloquent blogger, she also spreads her wisdom on Twitter, is a visual artist (Vicky Who Draws), and even helped organize a blog tour for The Weight of Our Sky,Β which I’m so excited to be a part of (put…

The Double Standard Applied to POC in the Book Community

This is a post largely inspired by what went on with Tomi Adeyemi and Nora Roberts. If you're not familiar with the situation, that's fine. If you are, please don't bring mob drama to my doorstep.

#MailboxMonday: A Photo Journey of the Book Mail I’ve Forgotten to Share

I always feel really lucky to receive a lot of amazing bookmail--both from friends, authors, publishers, and giveaways. There's always an inner battle for me between thanking the person (and I am so grateful to be able to read these amazing books) and trying to not flaunt my privilege in a way, especially because I … Continue reading #MailboxMonday: A Photo Journey of the Book Mail I’ve Forgotten to Share

This isn't supposed to be a "adults can't read YA!!!" post, nor is it supposed to argue who YA is for. I'm telling you … Continue reading The Many Ways YA Books & The Community Isolates Teens
