As chairperson of TriState Young Adult Review Committee, I will be sharing tips, tools, and cool reads that are of interest currently. Tristatereviews prepares a Books of Note yearly. That list is extensive but not correlated to the BookPushinCats blog. The website for that information can be found at the top of the blog page.
The Tri State Young Adult Review Committee has been in existence for more than 40 years. It has evolved over the decades into an organization comprised of dedicated professionals interested in evaluating new resources and sharing these findings with other professionals in the field. The committee is a fluid group that represents public schools, public libraries, and private schools in the Tri-State area of PA, DE, and NJ.
Here are my different websites:

I'm also working on some wikis for teaching children's and young adult literature.
If you check out the tristatereviews.org website you will find several back years of the best of books for several years back. They are in pdf form and levels are included for each book or series. I put the current books of interest on the blog.
