5 Great YA Writers/Books Websites

I love to peruse writers' personal sites as well as sites built to showcase books.  These are my favorites and why they work.

5 Favorite Writers' Sites
Walker's site is well-designed, easy to navigate and it markets her contemporary YA very effectively.

A great example of using a blog as a primary platform.  Westerfeld's site showcases his works and has been personalized to reflect his genre.

3.  Maggie
A simple, but personalized site that reflects the themes of Stiefvater's books.

4.  Sarah
Dessen's site is crisp and contemporary just like her novels.

5.  Ally
Carter's site is a strongly designed personal site with blog that reflects her modern, fun books.

5 Favorite Book Sites
If you are lucky enough to nab a great book deal, your publisher might put up a book site.  Here are my favorites in no particular order.

1.  the Luxe series
Well-designed, elegant site that showcases the books and author Anna Godberson

2.  Matched
I haven't read it yet but Matched is getting a lot of hype.  Its website reflects it.

3.  Sapphique
From the writer of Incarceron, a stunning website for her new novel debuting this month.

4.  I am a Genius of Unspeakable Power and I Want to be Your Class President
Title says it all.

5.  Virals
The site brings the story to life complete with interactive map.
