My special guest was previosuly a guest on the show way back on June 6th 2009, she is YA Blogger, Ashley whose blog Books make great lovers" is actually 2 years old this very day.
During the show we discussed about blogging and how her blogs and reviews have developed through the the last two years. The fact she blogs basically every day and actually started doing reviews some months before her blog started shows you how much she has written and read during that time. To give you and idea, Ashley is currently taking part in the "100+ challenge of 2010" where the person is challenged to read over a hundred books in the year. Well Ashley before the end of March is on book 47.
Through the show we discussed about authors and books as well as other subjects such as what age group books might be for, something that Ashley has covered with her own brand of grade and ratings she uses for her book reviews.
Some of Ashley favorite books and authors were discussed as well and what is happening with her own writing.
One really great thing for her to share was that she has been asked to be a gust panelist at a book convention, something that just goes to show what I am often saying, that at last the "Sham Wows" of YA literature are beginning to be recognized by publishers, publicists and authors.
So check Ashley's blog and her special contest to celebrate her second blog birthday.
