100 YA Novels: The Raven Boys

hot
I know I said I’d be doing a John Green novel for number 9, but apparently I lied. Basically I’ve been too lazy to make a review video like I promised. So I’m putting it off a little while longer and posting a review for the amazing novel, The Raven Boys instead.

How YA Changed My Life or Why I love YA!

Rupert
As many of you know, I'm a big fan of YA Lit. I chose it as my topic for my 100 Things, I'm a proud contributor at Teen Lit Rocks, my last four NaNo novels have been YA, and, most recently, I've chosen to turn my love of teen lit into a career as a teen librarian.

More on why I love YA!Collapse )



PS. Library school admissions packet went in the mail today. Wish me luck! ♥
