Top Shelf Tuesday

April 19, 2011

What I’m reading and loving this week. Chime in with your own recommendations!

1. The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks, E. Lockhart
2. Accomplice, Eireann Corrigan
3. How I Live Now, Meg Rosoff      


Today’s the day, people! Figment and readergirlz have partnered to promote the 2010 Rock the Drop celebration in honor of YALSA’s Support Teen Lit Day. Download a bookplate, slip it into a beloved YA novel, and “drop” that book for an unsuspecting reader to find! Snap a photo of your “drop” and send it to readergirlz or figment to be featured on the blog, and you’re entered to win a set of Ruby Oliver books by E. Lockhart.

What are you waiting for? Go rock the drop!

See what I did there?

Yeah, at the risk of being a broken record, this week is all about Rock the Drop.
Now that ALA’s list of most frequently-banned books has been released, why not consider dropping a BANNED book tomorrow? Way to make two times the statement about teen lit, and literacy!

Also, note that the winner of “most creative ‘drop'” will receive a complete set of Ruby Oliver books by E. Lockhart, the most recent of which, Real Live Boyfriends, was well worth the– ahem — wait.

I hope you’re as excited about Rock the Drop as I am! In the meantime, here’s some footage of myself and Ms. Jones being VERY stealth as we pulled off last year’s Drop:
