Children’s Readathon – Young Adult (YA)

Our third week focuses on children’s young adult (ya) books. A few dozen people are participating this month by reading and sharing reviews on many childhood favorites that were selected in a previous poll. Read from 8/18 to 8/23 and post your review on or before 8/24. Below are all the links I collected; they’ll take you to the original blogger’s review. Please email or message me if you’re participating or posting a review so I can add you to the list below of blogs to watch. You can add in anything into your post besides a review, e.g. giveaways, author profiles, background material, educational ideas, etc. Have fun with it!

Participating Books / Blogs

 

*Blog links will be available when the review is posted and the person notifies me.

Background / Guidelines

Welcome to the Children’s Books Readathon held in August 2018. Join in the fun to read between 8 and 12 books in August 2018 and share your reviews with the group. Don’t worry about the count of books, as (1) you can read only the ones you want and (2) some are less than 25 pages! See below for the 4 categories across the month as well as all the guidelines for how to participate.
