I was planning to talk about a couple of books this week (Betsy & Joe + Rose Lerner’s Listen to the Moon) but I wanted to re-read both before writing about them and it seems to be taking a very long time.
So in lieu of either post, I’ll mention that the first episode of The World of YA is up! In it I talk about YA as a category, my personal history with it, and some about YA romance and why it’s awesome + short book talks for three of my favorites. Please feel free to check it out if YA is your thing, or just if you’re curious about the sound of my voice. 🙂
Also, Amal El-Mohtar linked to this poem on Twitter, and I liked it quite a bit. It works best, I suspect, if you’re familiar with the inspiration, but I found the whole thing lovely and the ending really powerful.
