The Book Scout

I decided to start a blog as an outlet where I can discuss books and authors that I love. It's great to be able to share my feelings about books with people I know will appreciate them. 

The Book Scout originated in July 2009 and has been steadily growing since. I currently have over 950 followers and have posted a variety of reviews, author interviews, and contests. Considering I'm a teenager The Book Scout focuses mainly on YA fiction of all genres. The Young Adult Book Blogging community is amazing and I am so glad to be a part of something so awesome and special. I've had the chance to meet so many great authors and bloggers in person and have talked to even more via Twitter and Email. 

I've been lucky enough to be quoted in several books, (Darklight, Girls Acting Catty, The Sapphire Talisman, the ARC of Small Town Sinners, the ARC of Little Women and Me, Stealing Bases). 

Thus far my blogging experience has been fantastic and I'm looking forward to many more great years of reading and reviewing books!
