Friday Kid Lit Round-Up

LastolympianHey folks. Let's get warmed up with our friends at EarlyWord where the Rick Riordan frenzy is about to begin. Well, I guess it technically has with the release of the cover art for Percy Jackson and the Olympians #5: The Last Olympian.


If you're looking for love in teen lit, you need to check out the reviews on YA Authors Cafe. They have everything from a modern Jane Austen hero to a vampire climbing the social ladder of love.

Speaking of Jane, you may remember I blogged about her last week and I think we may have inspired Elton John to get in on the action. Yes folks, Pride and Predators will be coming to the big screen with the story of what happens when murderous aliens land in jolly old England.

OK, the chance to hear author Laurie Halse Anderson sound like ANYONE from Annie is too good to pass up.  Under the Covers thought so too.

Shelley Harwayne is offering her top five winter read alouds over at the BookNook. Not only does she offer some cool picks, but you can get a 25% discount on some of them.

And with that, folks, I'm off to enjoy some of this winter weather myself. We'll see you back here on Monday.
