Review Blog: Reading Rants!

Swan definitely writes for the teen crowd in this richly-linked, heavy-resource blog.  She looks for unusual or particularly compelling literature and reviews it in upbeat, contemporary language that had me looking for a pencil to write titles down.  She also solicits teen recommendations and comments, and the site contains all sorts of booklists, links to author blogs and other booklist blogs. 

Although this site caters to an older crowd, it is an awesome visit for librarians who encounter teens or upper school-age children regularly, or love teen lit and want a great recommendation.
