Girl behind the blog

Welcome! My name is Haley, I'm a 27 year old book-aholic. I'm a book reviewer for the RiverTalk Newspaper. I love reading YA, NA, and adult paranormal mostly, but I do go into other genres on occasion. If you want to talk more one on one about books, please don't hesitate to contact me on facebook or twitter, I love making new bookish friends!

Hereafter sounds very good and I love the cover! I've heard some great things about Tiger's Quest as well.

Blood Red Road is one of the best books I've read this year :)
