This Week in YA

Have you heard of This Week in YA?  If you haven't, it is time you were informed.  A while ago Jeffrey West started a series of seriously well done videos, informing us about all the things that have happened in the YA (Young Adult) world that week.  From book news, to publishing news, to the newest info on book-to-movies, TWiYA covered it all.  Recently, though, the show has gotten a facelift, a new channel, and new contributors, and it's more fantastic than ever.

What's awesome about this show is that it isn't just videos for the sake of videos.  There are tons of great bookish videos out there, but really, do they actually benefit us that much, or are they just a time-suck?  TWiYA, however, is full of important book news and interesting info, and it's just a lot of fun to watch.  I've learned more about YA from these episodes, than from anything else out there.

So, take a minute and get caught up, or just watch this week's episode.  This is one show you don't want to miss!
