Fists in the Air – Let’s RIOT!

7 Oct

If you haven’t seen it yet, let me introduce you:

I’ve been tweeting about it, Tumbling about it, Facebooking it, but I’m excited to announce that I’m one of the 12 founding contributors to Book Riot! Formatted kind of like HuffPost but with better writing and less pretentiousness, Book Riot will be the place to go for commentary on books, the publishing industry, and all the things you didn’t think you needed to know but absolutely do about all things literary. The diversity of contributors is awesome, and it’s like someone took my favorite bloggers and shook them up and put them all together (and then let me add my two cents as well). The brainchild of The Reading Ape, Riot is all about connecting books to readers, plain and simple.

I’m PSYCHED to be a part of it. Have no fear, A Home Between Pages won’t go anywhere, but I will most likely be posting less frequently here. But I’ll be linking to my Book Riot posts here on Mondays and Wednesdays, as well as posting original content here when I can. So far I’ve got a couple of posts up:

Beyond Sparkly Vampires: YA for Lit Snobs

Magic For Grown-Ups

And I got to flex my old recommendation muscles by taking on Amazon’s algorithm where I suggested a follow-up based on Game of Thrones, and the reader’s pick? Mine!

There are lots of great things to explore on the site, and I fully encourage you to make them a regular stop on your blog reading journey. Also find Book Riot on Facebook and on Twitter.

    Rachel, congrats on the new writing gig. (Is it a paid gig? Am I even allowed to ask?)
    Rock on girlie!

      Haha you can ask. Not yet it isn’t, bit the hope is that eventually we’ll make a big enough impact to make it paid.

      Thank you!!
