YA Month - "A Book and a Chat with Tirzah (Compulsive Reader Blog)"
January is YA Radio month on A Book and a Chat, with special guest throughout the month, not only authors but bloggers as well.
My guest on today's YA MONTH - "A Book and a Chat" was one of the YA bloggers I call the Sham-wow of Young Adult LiteratureTirzah who writes in the blog "The Compulsive Reader".
The show as normal was full of interest and entertainment and Tirzah shared with us how her love of reading had lead her to produce not only her blog, but reviews and book trailers amongst other items. In fact there seems no stopping her. With over a thousand book, I'm sure she'll have her own library soon.
Many interesting questions were put to Tirzah from people in the chat room, to which she supplied some really interesting answers.
During the show we learned about her favorite books both ones she reads as "comfort books" as well as sharing with us not only her most enjoyed books of 2009 along with some she is looking forward to reading in 2010. We also found out that Tirzah would have loved to have been around in the early twentieth century, chaining herself to railings and shouting "votes for women".
