The Beginning!

Hi all! For the last year I have been part of the book blogging world for YA. I have had a lot of fun being part of another blog, but now I am branching out on my own.

I found the title of my blog in a poem I found about books. Here it is:

Books to the ceiling
Books to the sky
My pile of books is a mile high
How I love them! How I need them!
I'll have a long beard by the time I read them!
by Arnold Lobel

I thought this poem was great, because it definitely describes my experience with books. I always not only want to read more than I can, but own more than I have read. I am a book addict, and hope that as this blog gains momentum I will have some help reviewing all the many books I want to share with you.

I am excited to continue reviewing books so that you can know what great books there are out there in the YA world! So many great books are coming out this summer and fall.

My reviews will include new books, old books, and books that are yet to come out. I will also do monthly giveaways!

Please bear with me as I get the layout/face of my blog all figured out. If you have read this then you have stopped by when barely anyone else has, so thanks! I look forward to sharing more with you soon!

Cool idea for a blog...just found you through a connection with Janette Rallison. I'm a newbie YA author -- my first book comes out summer 2011 -- so I love to see that there are people like you devoting time and space to books and more books!

Hi Amy! Welcome to my blog. When I got started with blogging it was a shock to me that there are SO many people who are dedicated to blogging about books! It is a great community, and a great place to get some free publicity. ;)

I love Janette! ;)
