Announcement Time: Sister Blogs + Giveaway



Hello! As you may have noticed, there have been some changes on the blog, mainly in the way it looks. We have an all new design and I’m so in love with it! Over the next few days you’ll also notice some changes in content, and that’s because…we are now a Sister Blog to Maji Bookshelf!

What?

You may be asking yourself what all of this means. Well, the girls over at Maji Bookshelf and us over here at YA Bookmark are going to be working together in many ways. Our blogs are going to be linked in every sense of the word. We will have bi-weekly wrap ups to showcase the posts that have been featured on both blogs and you’ll be seeing more faces on the blog. There will be monthly guests posts (including reviews, lists, discussion posts, etc.) from them over here and the same will go for us on Maji Bookshelf. It's going to be pretty great and hopefully will serve as motivation to blog more.

Who?

As I mentioned above, we have teamed up with Maji Bookshelf and that means new blogger faces on YA Bookmark! Juhina and Arshia will be blogging on here and you can check out all of their social media links right over there on the left hand side of the blog!

How?

Sometime on Thanksgiving day Juhina tweeted that she was looking for a new co-blogger. I’ve always loved Juhina’s blog so Jacquelyn and I retweeted her tweet and told her how we wished we could all blog together. The problem was that we both already had blogs that we had been growing since 2011. That night we brainstormed a lot because we realized this union was something we really wanted to make work. From there it was a fast road of ideas, some great and some that we ended up throwing out. Then, Juhina got herself a fabulous co-blogger, Arshia. AND HERE WE ARE.

I’m honored to be working with these awesome girls and I can’t wait for you guys to see the things we have in store. I’ve been ready for a change on the blog and I’m very pleased with this outcome.



To celebrate we are giving away one of our favorite books we read in 2015. It’s open to anywhere the Book Depository ships. Don’t forget to go over to Maji Bookshelf for more chances at winning!
