1st Rate Friday's #8 & YA Thanksgiving

A weekly meme to share favorite posts you've come across recently. Although it's impossible to follow every book blogger, this is a great opportunity to highlight exceptional posts you find. Hopefully along the way you'll find some great new-to-you blogs as well. Let's spread the love and support those awesome posts out there!

This was inspired by Cindy at Tynga's Reviews, Jennifer at Reading With Tequila, Lisa at The Little Reader...and me!

Let the fun begin!

After all the negativity recently, I was so happy to see this post by Adele:YA Community Thanksgiving - Come One, Come All

First Rate Fridays was created as a way to highlight & thank bloggers for their great posts. I love the book blogging. It's not only about finding great books to add to my ever growing wishlist & TBR piles, it really is about a community! I love chit chatting about non-bookish things on Twitter with people from all over the world whom I never would have met otherwise! I love being a YA reader who is not so YA anymore (ok, trapped in a 30-something's body but still young at heart) and not feeling out of place, that we stick together and stand up for YA when the genre gets attacked. And last but not least, I love that even though we all have different tastes, that we embrace & encourage eachother to be true to themselves! Heck, it would be boring if we were all the same ;)

Thank you YA community, you guys are the best!

What gems did you find?


  1. Tweeting has become an unhealthy obsession of mine but I figure as long as it touches on YA 50% of the time it can't be all that bad.

    Thanks for linking to the celebration of all things positive in the YA blogosphere!

  2. i love the thanksgiving post, too!
