Thanks for the Blog Love!

We are so happy that Sarah, of Sarah's Random Musings, and Jen, of Jen Robinson's Book Page, have named the readergirlz blog among their favorites!

We got the I Love Your Blog award from Sarah and the Butterfly "Coolest Blog" Award from Jen. Both come with logos, featured here, and both ask that we pass on the love. Wow. We read so many blogs that we're not sure where to start! Author sites and blogs are among our favorites, so here are links to the authors we've featured this year and where they write when they're not, you know, writing books:

Kirby Larson, author of Hattie Big Sky
Nikki Grimes, author of Bronx Masquerade
Sarah Dessen, author of Just Listen
Kelly Bingham, author of Shark Girl
Shannon Hale, author of Book of a Thousand Days
Laurie Halse Anderson, author of Prom
Jay Asher, author of 13 Reasons Why
Melissa Walker, author of Violet in Private (+ new rgz diva!)
Paula Yoo, author of Good Enough
Rachel Cohn, co-author of Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist
Ellen Emerson White, author of Long May She Reign
Meg Cabot, author of How to be Popular

Get lost in these authors' worlds, readergirlz! Thanks to Jen and Sarah for the awards and the inspiration.
