Hi all, I’m so excited to be hosting The Start of Em and You – Mostly YA Lit’s weeklong celebration of Emery Lord’s work!
I’ll be honest, I started this week as a way to motivate myself to finally write my reviews of Emery’s work – I adore her writing, and I feel a little unworthy of even reviewing it. So, I thought, what better way than create a spotlight that celebrates Emery’s books, and her devotion to summer, friendship, and love?
Throughout the week, you’ll hear from me and other readers who absolutely love Em’s writing, and what it has meant to us. I’ll also have tons of giveaways and contests, guest posts, and other fun things. I hope you’ll join me in celebrating an author who, to me, exemplifies everything I want to see in YA: real, raw emotion; swoonworthy romance; true feminism; wonderful female friendships; and facing your fears.
Here’s what’s happening this week; check back each day for new giveaways and posts!
Wednesday, July 29 – Open Road Summer: Why It Ain’t Slut-Shaming
Thursday, July 30 – Guest Post: Five Reasons To Add When We Collided To Your TBR by Ginger from GReads!
