Sunday Summary: 24th April

Time for another Sunday summary, with the FIVE best things I’ve found on the web this week!

There's a fantastic review here of How Green Was My Valley, the Welsh classic which is one of my favourite ever novels. Great work from Angiegirl!

In a shocking change from my normal 'link to something Kody Keplinger's written' tactic, I'm linking to a guest post the fantastic Steph Su made on Kody's blog. Examining what she's learnt about feminism and femininity from YA fiction, she provides some thought-provoking points. Not sure I agree with all of them, particularly the one about boyish names, but well worth taking a look at.

Over at the Pewter Wolf, a fantastic guest post by Colin Mulhern, author of the amazing sounding Clash, on discovering YA fiction. Plus, a giveaway of Clash open only to UK entrants! (Be quick; closing date's tomorrow!)

Great post by Lale here on comfort reading, what makes a good comfort book, and her own favourites. Mine personally would be Coming Home by Rosamunde Pilcher, anything by Cathy Hopkins, and the Abbey Girls series by Elsie J Oxenham.

I'm reading, and really enjoying, Sleight by Jennifer Sommersby on my iPod via the Kindle app at the moment so loved the interview with her at I Eat Words.
