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!

Merry Christmas friend! Hope you are buried in books from the boyfriend!

roro said...

enjoy all

Patricia said...

There are no words to express how much jealousy I'm feeling right now. xD All these books.. Want.. Need.. *switches to mothertongue and curses*

I'm curious what you'll think about Obsidian. I've heard SO many good things about it, but I fear that it'll be too.. YA-ish. You know, the typical tropes etc.

I hope you'll have some happy holidays,
