Guys, this week has been one of the most special in my blogging career. When I first came up with the idea of an Emery Lord appreciation week, I figured I’d just write my reviews and send out a few tweets. Never would I have guessed that I would get to interview Emery or commission a quiz from her! Thanks to all of you, and especially Bloomsbury, Penguin Canada, and Emery, this has turned into such a fun, emotional, literary week, so thank you so much for that.
I’ve been reading all of the comments, and it has been so gratifying to hear from others on their little moments that they’re making big, or ideas of summer and friendship, or the many viewpoints on slut-shaming and big issues in YA and whether it’s the author’s job to present reality or morality. If you’ve been following this week, I hope you’ll take a moment to check out some of the other comments and see what other people are saying.
In case you missed anything, here’s the full list of posts and giveaways, most of which are going on through this week!
