  1. Not a review but a great book discussion has just started at Color Online about Children's of the Waters by Carleen Brice.

    Is it possible we can have a dedicated post for relevant non-review links like book discussions or essays?

  2. Yes this is possible and a good idea. Then you can easily link up all related stuff. I will ask Katy how she is putting up the links.

  3. This is a great idea. I have a few links I was thinking of posting here, but I really like the idea of having a dedicated post where people can put in items of interest themselves. I'll put a link-up in tonight.

  4. I have two reviews so far this month Lockdown by Walter Dean Myers

    Leyla:The Black Tulip by Aleve Lytle Croutier
