Around the Web: Creative Types, YA Twitter, Sherrilyn Kenyon, and Canada Day Reads
Hello everyone, it’s Friday. You know what that means. That’s right, it’s time to share some content from around the web.
What’s Your Creative Type?
I have a suspicion that you readers might be creative types. But what kind of creative are you? Here’s a quiz to help you figure out your creative style and strengths. (We’d love to hear your results, so share in the comments if you like!)
On YA Twitter Controveries
Yes, Twitter can be a place of trolls and cancel culture, but it is also a means for many to use their voices and be heard. In YA Twitter, that means a lot of discussion (and arguments) over representation and diversity. Some would have you believe these discussions are toxic, but they actually express a valid frustration and seek to work towards a more equitable future in publishing. Molly Templeton breaks it down over on Buzzfeed.
Romance Author Accuses Husband of Poisoning Her
If you’re in the mood for a long read with lots of twists and turns, check out Vulture’s article on Sherrilyn Kenyon. You may know this author as the creator of the Dark Hunter series, or as the woman who sued Cassandra Clare over copyright issues. But her life is a lot more complicated than that. She had been going through a difficult period and believes her husband tried to poison her, but the story seems almost stranger than fiction.
Canada Day Reads
And since it’s a long weekend for us Canadians, that means more reading time. Here’s a list of awesome Canadian books for you to check out.
Enjoy your weekend and let us know if you’ve read anything interesting lately!
