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!

Ohhhhh fantastic haul this week Haley I need to get The Faerie Ring and Enthralled they look fab. And no it's not cheating if your boyfriend buys your books for you!!!

Carina said...

Oh, I loved Daughter of Smoke and Bone! And I'm dying to get my hands on copies of Enthralled and The Faerie Ring. Heard soo many good things about them.
And the book buying ban doesn't include your boyfriend, so I don't think it's cheating. ;) Bending the rules, maybe. :D But that's allowed.

Have a lovely week,

Ahh the faerie ring looks so pretty, I'm seeing it in almost all the American imms that I've checked out this weekend, hope you enjoy it!
Daughter of smoke and bone is really good! And I'm gonna be reading matched soon because I'm on the list to get crossed when review copies are available :)

Enthralled is a wonderful anthology! I've had my eye on Matched for a while now, but can't decide whether to buy the hardcover or paperback--both are so pretty! I hope you have a great reading week. :)
