A Roundup of My Favorite Link Roundups

As a book blogger and a librarian who does collection development, reader's advisory, social media, and technology instruction, it's important to keep up with what's going on in the world of books, pop culture, and technology. But unfortunately, it's impossible to read/watch/listen to/try EVERY thing, so I've found some excellent resources to use in order to stay informed. Check them out! 

Field Trip Friday at YA Highway
YA Highway describes this feature as "Our weekly trip around the field of YA with stops at the most helpful, interesting or otherwise entertaining news." I like that they break the links down into several categories: The Big News This Week, This Week in Writing, This Week in Reading, This Week in Publishing, This Week in Other Stuff, and This Week in The Random. I always learn something new!

Links of Note at Stacked
Links of Note is "a roundup of all things book, literary, reading, and otherwise worth clicking." It's a fabulous resource for interesting and thought-provoking links.

Procrastination Pro-Tips at Forever Young Adult
"Your weekly dish of internet distractions" provides links related to books, movies, TV, and more. It's always entertaining. FYA frequently posts about movies with a YA movie news roundup, Netflix Fix feature, and their always entertaining analysis of movie trailers.

Critical Linking at Book Riot
Critical Linking is described as Book Riot's "daily round-up of bookish links. Tastes great with coffee." This daily feature provides a handful of informative links to peruse while you drink your morning coffee and get ready for the day. It's become a morning routine for me. 

RA Rundown at The Readers Advisory Online Blog
This is "the readers’s advisory librarian’s weekly update, from a scan of more than 100 blogs, newsletters, magazines, newspapers and television." It's great for keeping up with what's new to the bestsellers list, what's being published this week, and what's happening in the world of books and libraries. It also includes news on book awards, authors, and professional development opportunities for librarians. 

Do you have any favorite link roundups I should check out? Stay tuned for more of my favorite resources for keeping informed including podcasts, YouTube channels, book review websites, email newsletters, and more.
