So many books! This is my book haul from the Friday before last - the four from Oxford University Press were given out at their Storm Your Imagination event, and the others were gifts from other bloggers except for The Worst Girlfriend in the World, which came in the post, courtesy of Atom Book.
I have been adding some new blogs to Feedly! Hopefully this will lead to more diversity in my Monday Amusements.
Jo at Once Upon a Bookcase is Desperately Seeking Romance (novels), go comment with your recommendations!
I pretty much agreed with everything Raimy at Readaraptor wrote about the book age certificate debate in Certificates for YA books? Seriously?. This debate seems to rear its silly head every couple of years and thankfully never goes anywhere.
This is Not Why YA is Important - Maggie Stiefvater hits the nail on the head.
I have an enormous collection of writing guidebooks, so I really liked L.K. Hill's mini-reviews of the how-to guides she's been reading recently.
A Daydreamer's Thoughts is hosting a Noughts & Crosses Read-A-Long! I am tempted but I read the first book fairly recently...
My favourite reviews this fortnight:
Grasshopper Jungle, by Andrew Smith, at weartheoldcoat
A Tale for the Time Being, by Ruth Ozeki, at Outlandish Lit
Scarlet, by A.C. Gaughen, at Rather Be Reading
Being Sloane Jacobs, by Lauren Morrill, at Geeky Chiquitas
Is there anything you think this post should have included? Let me know in the comments!
