First of all, we want to apologize for another gap in our blog. We appreciate all of our followers and readers, but the fact is, it’s hard to keep up a blog, go to work, go to school, go to internships, apply to grad school *and* have a social life. For this, we are forever sorry we do not have infinite amounts of time to devote to this blog.
As you all know, earlier this year Bailey and Kenzie left the blog for personal reasons. This brought our “staff” down to two, Laura and Kelly. We realized we would need to take on more work, and during BEA ‘12 we discussed the future of the Magic Hoodie Literary Society.
We knew that we did not want to end MHLit. We love it and we love you. We love what we do. Second of all, we wanted to turn it into more of a literary society, not just a review blog. That means numerous things. While you will still see reviews of YA books, you’re also going to see SO much more.
There’s going to be Waiting on Wednesday, In My Mailbox, Book Boyfriends, Best Of lists, interviews with our favorite authors, contests [hopefully], and a new recurring post that Kelly will start THIS Friday.
Laura and Kelly are VERY excited for the new chapter of MHLit. We are open to new ideas and if something we do stinks, tell us. We want to make it more of a literary society where YOU are included in the conversation. PLEASE leave us comments down below and if you would like to be a guest reviewer or blogger, don’t hesitate to ask!
We’re gonna get the ball rolling with a joint review of THE DIVINERS by Libba Bray on Wednesday [hopefully, if Kelly can read fast enough]! The Diviners is out TOMORROW, so don’t forget to buy yourself a copy!
