Mid-week round-up

A few things...

First, thank you to everyone who entered the Wentworth Hall giveaway I hosted!


The winners are... Carrie K. and Maggie H. 

Congratulations, ladies! I've emailed you. Big thanks again to Simon & Schuster for providing the prizes for this giveaway!

Second, I'm very pleased to say that I'm going to be blogging for The Hub, the teen literature blog published by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). Please check out my first posts-- I blogged about celebrating Asian Pacific American Heritage Month: here's Part 1 (an interview with author Cindy Pon) and Part 2 (a list of some really good reads that include elements of Asian or Asian-American culture). Stop by and tell me about your favorite books featuring Asian or Asian-American culture!

And finally, you know I co-host a YA lit podcast called Authors are ROCKSTARS!, right? Well, my co-host, Michelle, and I had the privilege of moderating the YA or Bust! panel at the Huntington Beach Barnes & Noble last week, featuring Stephanie Perkins, Gayle Forman, and Nina LaCour.


The event was so much fun! We had so much fun chatting with these fabulous authors. And, as always, part of the fun of attending a book signing is meeting other readers. This time, we met a book vlogger! And he put us on his video coverage of the event. I don't know about Michelle, but I am not used to being on camera, so I was super nervous! But it was really fun. Watch The Booktubenator's coverage of the YA or Bust event right here:

 
(Authors are ROCKSTARS! appears towards the end of the video).

And be sure to check out The Booktubenator'sYouTube channel-- it's awesome.

That's all for today!

    1. I'm so pleased to be joining the ranks! In fact, you were one of my inspirations for applying to be a Hub blogger. You always write such good posts there!

  2. Oh my gosh. I hate being on camera. I keep closing my eyes at awkward times. Ugh!

    1. Well, you looked totally natural on camera, and so cute! I felt so awkward, but I guess most people feel that way on camera, right?
