 A group of writers, including Cathy Cassidy, Fiona Dunbar and Joan Lennon, have got together to contribute to a joint blog called GIRLS ♥ BOOKS. There are sections to appeal to girls of 8+, 9-12 and teens. The authors say:
"It’s a place where we can tell you our latest news, whisper the secret stories behind our books, and share our favourite things. We’ll have a new blog post every day for you – plus giveaways, book reviews, event announcements and more. So if you’ve ever wondered what your favourite writer’s desk looks like, which book is lighting up her bedside table right this minute, or whether when she was 13 she had a really unfortunate haircut and was afraid of swans, GIRLS ♥ BOOKS is just for you."
At the same time as I discovered this site I also found Chicklish, subtitled "Reader, I snogged him", which is specifically aimed at teens and worth a look too.

One of our most popular pages on the Jordanhill website is Books for Boys .We're working on a similar page for girls. Watch this space!
