My daughter recently started a new YA book blog over at www.thebookowl.blogspot.com
Check it out. :) If anyone here has a YA book blog, please post so we can take a look.

Hi Twyla,

There is a good YA blog directory, The YA Blogosphere. It provides links and blog descriptions. I left my link so she can check out some of the teens I follow, too. My blog is not YA exclusive.

I enjoyed her review. I was not impressed with The Chosen One either but it is hugely popular among bloggers.

Thank you for the mention, L. :) Twyla, I went to your daughter's site and she's doing great so far! I'm looking forward to reading what else she's got for us, and think you're a pretty awesome mom for helping promote your daughter's blog in this way. :) As L. mentioned above, I blog at Steph Su Reads. I've currently got a few giveaways going on that you might be interested in. Hope to see you guys around!

I just started a new book blog - jennalikestoread.com  It's very new, so there isn't much there yet. :)
