July Linklove (Cartoons, Agents , YA Top Picks)

‘Tis time for my monthly linklist, where I share all of the wonderful sites that have kept me entertained, motivated, and inspired throughout the month.

But first, this amazing cartoon by Grant Snider.  I saw this at the perfect time: fully submerged in Camp NaNo, #WriteMotivation, and my 90 Day Novel Challenge.

Great cartoon, right?
