We also chatted a little about Mockingjay and our thoughts on the ending of the Hunger Games series. I broke that part up into a separate podcast to avoid spoilerage.
You have been WARNED — the following podcast contains MOCKINGJAY SPOILERS!!
Thoughts on Mockingjay:
Every day this week, there’s a topic for participants to blog about.
Today’s topic is First Treasure.
Since I started blogging about books earlier this year (and this is my first BBAW), I’m going to share the first book blog that I found:
I had been lurking on the NBC for quite a while, when I realized how many of the awesome ladies there had book blogs. Jessica’s blog was on of the first I found.
I love that she focuses on YA. Before reading Jessica’s blog (and searching for other book blogs after I found out how much I loved it) I never realized how many adults read YA and aren’t ashamed of it.
I always felt weird going to the Teen section in the bookstore. Now, I go there with no shame.
Jessica’s reviews are great, and as a high school English teacher, she’s always looking for great reads for her students.
Forever Young: A YA Lit Blog is a great place to visit, especially if you love YA like I do!
Thanks for looking!
