Welcome to From Cover to Cover, my very own children's literature blog! Now you might say, what makes this blog different than other YA blogs that litter the blogosphere with words like "Team Jacob/Edward," OMG, and snog? Well, this blog, unlike other blogs, can speak with a British accent.. But really, my blog will rock and I'll tell you why:

Top 3 1/2 reasons why From Cover is Cover is Awesome

1. I'm writing it so by the associate property if I am awesome, then the blog I write is awesome. it's just simple math.

2. I will provide reviews of similar books for those who are obsessed with a writer/genre and want more. Say you're a Holly Black addict, I'll get you your faerie fix without engaging in illegal activities. Just call me your dealer... I mean book dealer...

3. Marvel in wonder as I attempt the impossible - or at least unrealistic. Like my good friend (read: latest favorite author that I have yet to meet), A.J. Jacobs, who read the entire Encyclopaedia Britannica, I will attempt to glean a wealth of knowledge from a huge selection of books: The Newbery Award winners. My goal is to read all (in print) Newbery Award books and hopefully learn something in the process. I will keep you posted as I attempt to avoid paper cuts and discover if all these books hold up to the scrutiny of time and Harry Potter. (It wouldn't be a YA blog if I didn't mention Harry in the first post would it?)

4. What was I saying? Oh yeah, I'll happily go off on tangents about any random thing that you want to know about. Feel free to share your recommendations, your black lists, your favorite book reading snacks...

Just remember...........
Don't judge a book by its cover!
