Hi Laurie,

I have read 108 books this year so far and 76 of them have been YA. My last few posts are author guests posts as part of a blog tour. Since I'm in the midst of finals, I figured I'd have guest posts rather than nothing at all. I love reading in general, but YA is one of my favorite genres. I'm working on whipping my blog into shape over the next month or so to take on the look and style that I want. I'm kind of new to book blogging so I have to figure out my element and go with it. Any suggestions you have would be very much appreciated.
