Welcome everyone :) Things may be a little slow at the moment as I am in my last few months of school so I am swamped with work and exams but if you had time to leave a comment it would make my day!

YA Review Directory

I've got something very exciting to share with you all today! Katie from Call Me Crazy YA Book Reviews and I have been working on a little project this week and we want YOU to be a part of it.

Drumroll please......

We have created the YA Review Directory. I came up with the idea when I received a book for review (Low Red Moon by Ivy Devlin) and I wanted to find multiple reviews on it to get an idea of whether or not I would enjoy. I found one or two but they were so opposing that I felt like I needed to read more. Goodreads is great, I love it, but I wanted to know specifically YA bloggers thought about it! So I came up with the idea for the YA Review Directory. I asked Katie to jump on board because she is a great blogger and a great friend too! We have a list of reviews sorted by title and author as I know people prefer different ways of searching. We also having the average book ratings by title and from highest to lowest. Finally we have a book bloggers page where we shall link the blogs of those who have reviews on the site!

We will also have a weekly blog post featuring things like "the highest rated book of the week" "featured bloggers" and "new releases we love" for you to enjoy. If you have any suggestions of posts feel free to let us know!


Why don't you stop by, have a little look around and see if it is something you would like to be a part of. If you do want your reviews to be on the site you can email:

me: thereaderroom (at) hotmail (dot) co (dot) uk

Katie:  callmecrazyreviews (at) rocketmail (dot) com

You will need to provide:

  • the name of your blog
  • A link to your blog
  • title and author of Review- the link next to or attached to the text
  • Your rating for the review (please let me know in the email if you don't have some so I don't have to search for it)
Please send these on a word document attached to the email.

If you have any questions, comments, suggestions or concerns feel free to ask either Katie or myself and most of all. Enjoy! We look forward to seeing you there.


  1. Wow this is an AWESOME idea guys! I totally want to jump on board. I definitely have felt the same way about reviews and books where its like you're searching for a review but you can't find one or you can but only a few and what not. Love this. :)

  2. aw Thanks Julie :) I'm so glad you like it! If you want your reviews on the blog just email me or Katie the links :)

  3. Great idea ladies! I'll definitely send mine through. :)

  4. Amazing idea Alice and Katie! I'll email you my reviews soonish, I'm just waiting to get my laptop back, as it died on me. The one I'm currently using is useless and I can't move it without it switching off.

    Anyway, YAY! for this idea! I love it. I'm off to check out the site now :) *cheers*

  5. Thanks Amber :) Perfect, whenever you are ready! Thanks so much Amber :)

  6. What a great idea. I've sent an email with some questions I have to Alice.

  7. Hey this is a really neat idea. I have slowed up on my reviews unfortunately, but when I do review a YA lit book, I will be sure to email ya!

  8. Gina: Thank you!

    BookGeek: Thanks. Whenever is great!

  9. Good idea! I'm game! I'll e-mail you some reviews this week!
