Instead of letting my former features slip into oblivion I decided to bring some of them to the surface just a little bit, as a reminder of what was on this blog, what people knew me for and what I put a lot of my effort into. There are a couple in that drop-down menu that are current but I don’t have any plans for resurrecting any other features, nor do I plan on starting any new ones. That kind of goes against my whole ‘low key’ attitude.
Not a feature but the glorious book club I currently belong to, I cross-promote the books we YAck on whatever blog I’m on. We are still going strong and you can expect to find our monthly books listed here.
This is where I file posts I make for actual book events I attend. I’ll also put things like cover reveals and major author announcements here for the authors I have a lot of love for.
If I had an author on for a guest post or interview, it was filed under this. If I happen to have an author on again this is where it’ll be.
Things I Learned from Books
This particular feature got me a lot of attention and whenever I attended BEA and a fellow blogger found out who I was this feature was inevitably mentioned. Every week I would take a tidbit of information I learned from reading and share it with the class, usually with a humorous slant.
In order to showcase my love for all things YA cheese (read: YA horror from the 90s) I started this feature to highlight one book a week from days past. From Christopher Pike and RL Stine to Diane Hoh and Richie Tankersley Cusick and everyone in between, I tried to get them all.
Because I have a sick obsession with the 80s, I wanted to show that on my blog. Pretty irrelevant to books, I would post something from the 80s every week, whether it was fashion, a movie, toys, whatever I could find.
