Weekly Wrap-Up: 6/12 -6/18/17


Happy Sunday bookworms!

To those of you in the U.S, happy Father’s Day!  Hopefully everyone was able to celebrate with the important father(s) (and/or father figures) in their lives.  For those of you who are missing their fathers/father figures for one reason or another, I hope you find comfort today.

Book Blogger Recs: Bloggers to Follow for YA Readers (Part 1)


If you missed it last month, I started a new feature on my blog called “Book Blogger Recs”.  You can read my first installment here → Book Blogger Recs: Bloggers to Follow for Thriller/Suspense/Crime Readers.

“Book Blogger Recs” is a monthly feature where I highlight book bloggers based on a particular theme.  This will not be a simple listing of blogs, but also a mini Q&A session with each blogger.  This way you can get to know the bloggers a little better before checking out their blogs for yourselves.

Are you a YA reader?  If so, I have a few book bloggers I would like to introduce you to…
