Retro YA Book Blogging
This morning Feministing brought my attention to some great “retro-lit sites, which re-read the ghost-written classics of my childhood and mock them when appropriate.” I think we’ve come a long way in terms of YA literature for the ladies (Emily Pohl-Weary’s new Natalie Fuentes series, for example,) but it’s always fun to visit these blogs that take a trip down (the very blonde) memory lane…
