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.

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