Saturday Spotlight: Bullying

As you might be aware I ran a Saturday Spotlight a few weeks ago about bullying (here) Thanks to the wonderful comments from lovely fellow bloggers and some I came up with myself; I was able to put together a list of books which deal with bullying to some extent.

I was hoping to host a anti-bullying themed week on my blog for Anti-Bullying week 15th - 19th November. However, I understand that a few other people want to run their own anti-bullying weeks. I would like to tie this all together by using a hash-tag on Twitter #ABW and by displaying the Anti-Bullying Week Blog Button below. Also if you could give me a schedule of what you are going to post I will put it on my blog on the Monday and then a recap at the end of the week. Giving more publicity for the posts and therefore the anti-bullying campaign.



13 Reasons Why – Jay Asher (being reviewed by Caroline at Portrait of a Woman)

Stargirl – Jerry Spinelli (being reviewed by Asamum Booktopia)

Plus the list from Clover at Fluttering Butterfiles

Speak - Laurie Halse Anderson (being reviewed by Asamum Booktopia)
(Plus Clover will be giving you a chance to win a copy for yourself on her blog during #ABW)

The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl - Barry Lyga

The Lottery - Beth Goobie

Please let me know if you would like to contribute by reviewing one of these bullying themed books or by writing a post from a personal perspective.

  1. Sounds fantastic (and thanks for the awesome-looking booklist). I've been wanting to post something about this for a while: will save it up!

  2. I'm definitely in - I'm happy to write a post about my own personal perspective if there's a spot available. Sent you mail a while ago, so not sure if you got that or not!
