03:32 am - The Last Review of FebruarYAY! - The Red Pyramid
For those who are somehow just tuning in, I posted a new YA-related review every weekday for the month of February on my website/review archive. While this post comes a little late due to computer issues, the review itself went up right on time. So go check out what I had to say about The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan. It's the start of a new series set in the same world as Percy Jackson, but focusing on a different pantheon, a different set of heroes, and a different legacy. Good stuff! (This was another review written as part of my failed audition for About.com, by the way.)

For those who have enjoyed this time of reviews, rest assured that it's not quite over. While I don't have anything as regular as FebruarYAY! planned at the moment, I'll continue to post bonus YA reviews on my site as they become available. And, of course, I'll keep posting my Realms of Fantasy reviews as issues come and go, and I'll be archiving what I write for SF Site and Green Man Review.

If you've enjoyed this, and want to see more, please feel free to let me know. I'm easy to contact, and I don't bite. Your feedback and encouragement keeps me going. And if you REALLY like what I write, consider buying the books that I make look good. The publishers and authors will appreciate it also. It's the cycle of life, after all.

Thanks for dropping by!

Over the past month or two, I've been using your review archive to find stuff to read. It's nice and very useful. :) And the February reviews were good to show me what kinds of books are coming out.

Have you thought of maybe making some lists? Like, top ten vampire novels, top ten fae-themed, etc? That could be so useful when you're trying to find something to read in a particular genre, but don't know where to start. Or maybe writing an introductory piece for different genres and subgenres, giving us recommendations on must-reads and interesting titles?

It's just a few ideas, I have no idea if they'd be good or doable, just speaking from what I thought I'd find useful. Mostly it's from my perspective as someone who's just getting into the general urban fantasy genre.

I caught your post on Wordpress --The Jones Files. Highly amusing, and I suspect not that far from the truth, either.

BTW, with the glut of books on the market, a reviewer you can trust is invaluable in sorting things out.
