YA Appreciation Month 2010

Young Adult Appreciation Month – Join the Party!

For the past few weeks, we have been celebrating all things YA with loads of reviews, interviews, guest posts and giveaways.

Now it is time to open the floor to YOU, so that you can be part of the party as well!

Over the course of the day, this post will be open to anyone with a blog to join in the fun. All you have to do is add your blog name (and the title of your post between parenthesis or at least an indication of what it is about!) and the url of your post in the form below and voila! All the posts will be listed here for everybody to read. Your post can be a review of a favorite oldie, a review of a new (or new to you) YA novel, a post reflecting on the genre, or even a piece on why you DONโ€™T read YA. Anything at all…as long as it is about YA.

So, let’s get the party started!

    I’m sort of cheating by posting something I wrote a couple of weeks ago but I’ve been doing lot of YA reviews so I guess it still counts. Off to look at everyone else’s ones now!

    Thanks for this opportunity to share my blog. I try to write spoiler free reviews that will help someone decide if they want to read the book or not. I am extremely new and green to the book blogging world. But I love books, and love other people who do to and this gives me a chance to communicate with so many. Thanks again! (also, your blog was one of the first I ever followed!)

    I have added my post! It ended up being TOO LONG (as my posts often do), so the book rec part will have to go up tomorrow…

    YA rocks!

    I love YA too. Thanks for celebrating it! My post is an older one I wrote for the Tor blog, but I hope that’s okay. Off to read the other links . . .

    Got mine done just in time! Was going to do it last night, but it was a long day of my very own “young adult-ness” with the kidlet lol. This is always a fun time in YAAM. Going to have a look-see at everyone elses posts throughout the day. Cheers, everyone. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Hmm, just noticed that for some reason my link says Suite Scarlett Giveaway, when it was supposed to be Suite Scarlett AND Giveaway. Promise I’m not trying to spam yalls event! There’s a review, plus a giveaway. Sorry about that!

    Wow, this is the best day ever! I’m super excited that you guys are doing this. My review is older but I think people need to know about the book. Hope you like it! Now, I’m off to read other people’s reviews and articles ๐Ÿ˜€

    I took more time I expected to write my post about YA in France. ๐Ÿ˜ณ I’ll make the translation in English in few hours because I’m very tired now (1:22 am here), sorry. ^^”

    Wow — it’s been so long since I read anything written for “grown-ups” that I couldn’t decide on a post, so I just linked to my blog.

    I review lots of graphic novels and fantasy, so enjoy!

    I linked to my last YA review of Clockwork Angel since I’m planning a giveaway later this week. And I have a Zombies VS. Unicorns review that I was sitting on (wanted to post closer to release date!) probably going up this week too.

    I hope I’m not too late! I love the variety of posts listed–I can’t wait to read them all.

    I’ve really been enjoying YAAM, except that my B&N cart is getting awfully full….

    I posted #40 and #42, and apologize for posting twice. Copied the wrong link and ended up posting the inferior post the 1st time around. I apologize.
