Happy Sunday friends. I hope everyone is having the coziest weekend. If you want some internet time today here are some of my favorite new links. Enjoy!
Happy Sunday and December first! I don’t know about you, but after NaNoWriMo and Thanksgiving guests, I’m ready for a lazy day. If you are too and you want to spend some of the time on the Internet, here are some of my new favorite bookish links:
- Myths about girls in YA fiction.
- Many people are upset about the way Catching Fire has been marketed (i.e. all the Capitol-like advertisements, nail polishes, crazy false eyelashes, etc.). The author Suzanne Collins gives her thoughts on the film’s marketing strategy.
- Quiz to find out which literary character you are. Continue reading “Links for a Lazy Sunday”
Happy Sunday! I’m a little groggy today, because instead of going to bed early like I planned so that I would feel fresh in the morning to put together the blog post, do my NaNoWriMo daily writing, and study for the GRE (which I’m taking in less than a week!) I stayed up past three in the morning reading Along for the Ride, by Sarah Dessen. In honor of this late night reading, I thought I’d share a post suggests other authors for fans of Dessen’s books. Here are some other great links from around the web:
- Fourteen Published Novels that began as NaNoWriMo projects.
- Online Auction where you can bid on items or experiences from authors, editors, and literary agents to raise money for the Red Cross’s Typhoon Haiyan Appeal.
- The cast from the Hunger Games list their favorite young adult books Continue reading “Links for a Lazy Sunday”
It’s day one of my trip in LA and day three of NaNoWriMo, so I’m hoping my Internet time is going to be replaced with writing/snuggling with my sister time. Luckily, I prescheduled this post before I hit the train yesterday. So if you want to find some bookish or writerly things around the web, you’ve come to the right spot:
- NaNoWriMo tips from The Bookshelf.
- Joan Didion’s thoughts on keeping a notebook.
- The New York Times writes another article on the decline of the humanities at American colleges. I’m getting concerned.
I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend. It’s beautiful out in Big Sur, so I probably won’t be spending too much time on the Internet today. But in case you feel the desire to wander through the world wide web, here are some links I found pretty darned interesting. Enjoy!
- There is apparently one perfect book for every Myers-Briggs type. I can’t exactly remember my letters, but based on the books I’m hoping for INFJ.
- A brief history of YA Literature
- New trends in YA fiction: This article wigged me out a bit, but it’s very informative. Continue reading “Links for a Lazy Sunday”
