Today, as you’re reading this post in fact, you’re joining in the celebration that I have on YABookShelf.com. As the title of article suggests, you’re currently reading the 100th post ever published on my site, and I couldn’t be happier to share this momentous occasion. Over the last three months and (nearly) two weeks, I’ve consistently offered you, dear readers, a look at some of the latest and greatest YA books to end up on my bookshelf. Often you’ll find reviews here. Other times, you’ll read interviews with some of my favorite YA authors, and frequently, I’ve got some amazing giveaways to share with you. However, no matter what I take the time to share with you, I do it with a passion and dedication that I hope comes through to my readers.
As I was writing this post, one of my Twitter followers/followees sent me a few comments out of the blue about how much she likes my site. Ezra went on to say in under 140 characters, “Your passion and commitment def comes through in your work, one of the many reasons why I love reading your posts, so so great!” I was floored. It’s not that I haven’t received positive feedback about YA Book Shelf before, but it was sent at the perfect moment, just as I was mulling over everything that I’ve done with it so far, and of course, thinking about where the future will take my site. Her comment really made my day, which is why, rather than talk about another book I love, I’m going to do my *happy dance* and share with you all, for the first time on my site, my requisite *happy dance* song:
So, what did you think of the song and video by Lykke Li?
Not ready to answer that? No worries, how about the following questions about my site? Like, do you have any comments, whether they’re completely positive, constructive criticism or otherwise? I’d love to hear what you think of the first 100 posts and what you hope to see for the next 100 because though this site is a labor of love, it’s a labor also for you, my readers.
