Introducing Edifying and Edgy

My friend, Karin of Karin's Book Nook, and I have teamed up for a fun blogging adventure.  We love talking about books and sometimes we like the same things, but sometimes we don't.

I am a very eclectic reader.  I enjoy stories with happy endings, classics, christian fiction, and inspirational novels.  I absolutely LOVE mysteries in all genres.  I am more conservative than Karin, which is good.  We balance each other out.  It really comes in handy when we are working with Middle School students.  It is nice to be able to provide students with a wide range of reading suggestions.

Karin tends to read mostly paranormal, urban fantasy, dystopian novels, and dark, contemporary fiction.

Because our reading tastes are a little different, we decided to use that to our advantage and put our heads together for a new blog.  We’ll both be posting reviews.  I will be posting reviews for books that are Edifying (meaning they will be great stories that don’t contain teens in risky behavior, in other words, they are “clean”). The books Karin will be posting reviews for are considered Edgy and may contain sexual references, drugs, drinking, violence, abuse, and adult situations.

So, help us spread the word. Edifying and Edgy will have recommendations for everyone.  We’ll have reviews for all genres at both ends of the reading spectrum (clean and “edgy”).

Click this link to find out how to enter Edifying and Edgy’s first contest.  You can win a copy of THE MOTHER-DAUGHTER BOOK CLUB by Heather Vogel Frederick and SWOON by Nina Malkin.  You’ll have the chance for extra entries if you help spread the word about the new blog around the blogosphere.
