Karen (from Teen Librarians Toolbox), Congrats!  You won the ARC of UNTIL I DIE!  And the summer giveaways continue this week with KISS THE MORNING STAR by Elissa Janine Hoole.  Simply comment to enter.

Two excellent twitter discussions last week tied for Best Hastag:  #YALitChat and #YAWritersAAT

YALitChat is consistently good, often with a range of authors chiming in.
Great discussion about What's authentic in YA? Fresh from the mouths of teens.  Hopefully a regular occuring chat.
More excellent writing discussion/advice:


Books we're excited about:


Over the weekend, WeHeartYA attended an awesome 8-author YA Panel at Joseph-Beth Booksellers:

Just one reason to catch a Sarah Rees Brennan signing (she's hilarious):

I mean, this was all before she even arrived in the US.  She and Saundra Mitchell went for a whirlwind weekend of events before finally stopping in Cincinnati along with Rae Carson, Julie Kagawa, Julia Karr, Christine Johnson, and Kristina McBride.  Stop back on Thursday for a full recap and photos!!

Great tweet roundup! You remind me that I always forget about #YALitChat. Bad me.

I can't wait to read the recap of the signing. I really wanted to go, but a 12 hour drive just didn't make sense :(

@Leeanna...we always seem to catch the end of the discussions. hashtags are our bff's. 12 hour drive? Yeah, good call on that one! Still, would have been awesome to see you.

@Chelley...teen slasher, I mean who would have predicted that?!? Really looking forward to it. Thanks for commenting.

SRB *is* hilarious! I had no idea.

"With a capital STOKED" totally cracked me up. :)

And I loved all the writing advice.

#NALitChat needs some love! ;) (J/k, it's your roundup, you do what you want.)
