Book Reviews and More

Hi! This blog is for my classes at Texas Woman's University.

Welcome to my blog!

I'm so glad you found me! This is my first attempt at blogging, thanks to a nudge from Dr. Sylvia Vardell, my professor of Literature for Children and Young Adults at Texas Woman's University. I am in graduate school earning my masters in Library and Information Studies.

I am also a member of SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators) and I do book reports for our monthly chapter meetings. So if you are from SCBWI, I will use this blog to post the titles of the books I talk about each month at our meetings. Just click the tab at the top of the page that says 'SCBWI- Houston Monthly Book Reports'.

Remember - as a writer (and a library student) it's important and fun to stay current on what's new in the world of kid lit.

Thanks for stopping by - come visit again soon!


  1. Hurray for Dr. Sylvia Vardell! McCourt, I'm so glad you've started this blog. I'm looking forward to all your news and reviews!
