YA Onscreen Things

This week in YA Onscreen: Trailer for Season 2 of 13 Reasons Why, Avengers: Infinity War, and more.

Look, I'm just going to leave this here.

Social Media Things

Hello, YA. Please do this for all series books from now on. (The Percy Jackson books with the newer covers have great spine game, too!)

 

One of my favourite uses of Twitter is the sharing of fun, random anecdotes. Kind of like the reader submission section of a teen magazine!

 

 

SHERO.

 

A+++ mom lingo.

 

I know brands have all stepped up their social media game, but Pop-Tarts is S A V A G E.

 

Miscellaneous Things

Speaking of social meedz, have you tried quitting Facebook? This writer posits why it's so difficult to do: because Facebook is an emotional labour machine.

In sportsy things because I'm the one putting the links together: multilingual cursing in the NBA, playoff beards in the NHL, and JEEZ, more heinous treatment of cheerleaders in the NFL.

 

That's it for this week. Feel free to share your thoughts on these or any links we may have missed in the comments below!
