Top 4 Underrated Series Roberta @ Offbeat YA Will Never Stop Shoving at People


This post is part of A Winter's Tale, an event running through December for which we invited eight of our favorite bloggers to talk about their favorite books, authors etc. or share an interesting discussion. They have gone all out and gave us even better, more professional content than we expected, which is to say something. If you're here, don't forget to enter our month-long international giveaway here.

Today, we are happy to welcome: 

Roberta from Offbeat YA!

We've been huge fans of Roberta and her blog for a long, long time now, so it was a no-brainer that we wanted her to be a part of this event- especially since this isn't Christmas-themed because - for those of you who don't know this already-  she isn't the biggest fan of Christmas ;) Anyhoo, we're happy to have Roberta here with us today and we love what she's come up with for us- hope you do too! 

                                                            

Hi Regal Readers! Roberta from Offbeat YA here. Vera was so kind as to ask me to participate in TRC's December event, and I jumped at the chance of spamming... I mean... creating content for this awesome blog. Since I'm passionate about indie/small pub/all along underappreciated gems in the YA field (hence my blog's name), I decided to talk about some of my favourite underrated series today. 

Please bear in mind that the only reason why a couple of them only have a handful of reviews on Goodreads is that small publishers don't have the resources to market their books - therefore, the authors ultimately decided to take matters into their own hands and give the series the ending they deserve, no matter what. (Plus, not everybody leaves reviews on Goodreads. Shocking, I know). So, when I say "in progress", it does mean the story will get wrapped up eventually! Soon or soon-ish. OK, end of rant. Here goes...

My Attempt to Embrace Winter {Sam from We Live and Breath Books}

I've been following WLaBB for quite a while, so Sam was pretty much a given when Clare and I first brainstormed for bloggers to invite. What I admire about her and her blog - besides the adorable sloth-theme which is 1000% precious - is the way she is able to engage her readers; no matter if she's reviewing books or discussing an interesting topic, it feels natural to join in on the conversation in the comments. - Vera 💙

Now, without further ado, here's Sam's post!

                                                                        

It’s that time of year. There’s a chill in the air, and the threat of snow is imminent — WINTER

A Winter's Tale - Opening Post + International Giveaway


Happy December, y'all! It's me, Ruzaika, making an entrance here quite a bit earlier than anticipated because the situation called for it- sounds glamorous, but not really, because it's the end of the year (like, where did the year even go, right?) and we're all suddenly busy trying to meet deadlines and survive what's left of the year and trying hard not to freak out and...well. I'm going off the course here. Let me rephrase.

What I meant to say is, Vera and Clare worked hard to bring together some of our favourite bloggers for a blogging event this month- quite alike what we did with A Christmas Story the past couple of years- but it's obviously Winter-themed here in order to make the grinches feel welcome (yes, Roberta, we're looking at you! xD), and to be inclusive of those who don't celebrate Christmas. We love ALL of you and know that centering an event around a holiday not everyone is celebrating is unfair. 

I'm here today to officially kickstart the event with a list of all the wonderful blogger-friends who will be guest-posting here throughout the course of the month.  Excited already? No? Well, you will be once you see the amazing people we have lined up for the month!


Without further ado, let me present-
