Top 5 Books of 2018

Hello all! Welcome to 2019 on Mostly YA Lit. Happy New Year and thanks for sticking with me through all the hiatuses. It’s been a long time, I know. Mommying is friggin hard and busy, and I thought I would have more time for blogging, but alas. But I’m back for a bit and trying to get my blogging legs in order.

Here’s what went down at the event for those of you who couldn’t attend or just want to hear what it was like to be an event host! Since this is […]

I DON’T Like Big Books and I Cannot Lie | Bookish Confessions #1

I DON’T Like Big Books and I Cannot Lie | Bookish Confessions #1

Bookish Confessions is a new feature on Mostly YA Lit.

Once every two weeks, I’ll share one shameful truth about me as a reader, blogger and booklover. Ready? Let’s go! Yup, it’s true. I don’t like big books, and I cannot lie. I know I’m supposed to be like, “Yay, big tomes! Yay, more words! Yay, more of living in this book’s world!” I am, after all, […]

Ten Facts About Me | Top Ten Tuesday

Ten Facts About Me | Top Ten Tuesday

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is a fun and personal one: top ten facts about me! I have an about page, but sometimes I forget to talk about myself enough in my blogs, so I’m excited for you to get to know me better (and vice versa!).

This is probably the biggest part of my life I don’t talk about! I’m a […]
