Hey there, everyone! Long time, no see!
I've been on winter break for the last week and a half, and in that time, I've become obsessed with a new YA book site: EpicReads. It's an amazing site run by HarperCollins that features all their YA new releases and some AWESOME videos and recommendations. Specifically, I've become obssessed with the blog runners' weekly video chat on YouTube, Tea Time. They have over 85 episodes that originally aired live. They talk about what they're reading, live chat with their viewers through Twitter and YouTube, talk about upcoming books, and relate topics of the books they talk about to real life. Most episodes run around half an hour and air live on Wednesdays at 4:30 ET on YouTube. Since I came late to the game, I'm just watching the huge backlog of episodes and waiting to watch my first live episode next week when they come back for the new year.
Now, that was a lot of explanation to lead to this: I'm coming back to blog! I went into it without enough purpose the first time -- it was just for me. This time, I'm going to specifically be reviewing YA books and (hopefully) making a YouTube channel of my own to accompany it. So watch out for new stuff coming your way!
Just to brag a little more about the awesomeness that is Epic Reads Tea Time with Margot and Aubrey: THEY ARE THE BEST! They basically give book talks of YA books every week. If you want to pick and choose what to watch rather than binge watch them all like me, I say go for any video labeled ARC Party or Book Shimmy Awards. They talk about the most books in those, where in some others they get into more conversations about related things. You will LOVE it!
So, I hope to be back with my first blog post tomorrow for the new year reviewing the book A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray, and possibly a video! See you soon!
