By this point in the summer, many people are on vacation or have vacations planned for the near future. If you’re planning a trip to some great, sunny beach (or you’re not going anywhere and just want to read some good books), here are some recommendations for you to load on your e-reader or pack in your beach bag!

Hey everyone! Sorry I’ve been a huge slacker and haven’t posted any new reviews in ages. It’s been a crazy semester and I barely have time to sleep. But summer is just around the corner and my schedule will be much less hectic, so I’m hoping I’ll have time to read all of the novels that have piled up this semester and get you some good reviews! In the meantime, feel free to check out my reviews at The Daily Quirk! I’ve read some pretty good stuff for them so far (yet another reason why I haven’t had time to … Continue reading More Book Reviews Coming Soon!
Hey friends! So, it’s been a while since I’ve posted and a lot has happened since then. So I thought I’d share a little bit of my exciting, book-related news: 1.) So, my blogging stint with Epic Reads was a week or two ago, and I wrote a pretty awesome post about things that are similar to the Full Moon series, only I kind of didn’t send it in until the last few days of the Full Moon section of their promotion. And my post never got posted. Which is kind of a bummer. I read that entire book series and I … Continue reading Update!
The holidays are fast approaching and, if you’re like me, you probably haven’t done your shopping yet. But it’s okay! You still have time! And if you have a book lover to buy for, I’ve got some great ideas for you!
Young Adult – The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
I reviewed this book earlier, and it is honestly one of the greatest works of fiction I have ever read. John Green is a fantastic and hugely talented writer. The Fault in Our Stars is incredible, and readers of all ages would enjoy reading it.
Chick Lit – The Heather Wells series by Meg Cabot
The Heather Wells series (Size 12 is Not Fat, Size 14 is Not Fat Either, Big Boned, Size 12 and Ready to Rock) is really fun to read. Heather is a former teen pop star and current residence hall director at New York College. Weird and mysterious things keep happening (murders, thefts, etc.), and Heather plays Nancy Drew and tries to solve the crimes. These books are funny, relatable, and interesting. Meg Cabot knows how to write an entertaining book. BONUS: The next book in the series comes out in January, so there won’t be any waiting if anyone flies through the series and wants more!

I apologize in advance if this makes no sense. I am in shock and dying of happiness and excitement right now. Have you heard of Epic Reads? It’s a website through HarperCollins that is dedicated to YA Lit. It’s pretty much just a huge YA Lit discussion place and they have lots of cool stuff and tie-ins with popular YA series and such. Earlier this week, they posted that they were looking for some readers who are new to a number of their dystopian and paranormal series who would be willing to read the series and blog about their experience. … Continue reading Epic Reads: The End is Here
Hey everyone! I have to say, I’m ridiculously happy/flattered that people actually read this! Every time I log on and see that this blog has gained views, I have to restrain myself from breaking out into a happy dance. I’m still getting the hang of reviewing and I’m looking forward to sharing even more books with you guys! You might have to bear with me for a little while as I try to establish a regular posting schedule, but I’ll get there! I picked a kind of terrible time in the semester to star this, because finals are coming up … Continue reading Wow! People read this!
Hello, Internet! My name is Abbie, and you have found your way to my book blog. I’m a third year college student with an addiction to reading. I’m studying journalism and book publishing, and my dream job is to review books or work for a literary agency. Recently, I’ve won some advance copies of a few books via Goodreads (such a fabulous website!), so I decided to practice my reviewing skills here. I hope you enjoy! You can look forward to reviews of The Inventor and the Tycoon: A Gilded Age Murder and the Birth of Moving Pictures by Edward Ball and The … Continue reading Allow me to introduce myself
