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!

Significance, and Untraceable I have read and LOVED 
so I knew I needed to get hardcopies to go on my shelf! (
Brightest Kind of Darkness I bought for Donna over at Book Passion for Life, 
she is quoted on the back! So I knew she needed it on her shelf! 

Gifted from my boyfriend Ray

Ahh I am so excited to have these! A Million Suns, Ray wanted to get for me because he loves the sound of that series and he remembered me raving about Across the Universe, and Dragonswood I picked out because he has dragons and fairies in it according to the back!!! What is more awesome than dragon and fairies?! NOTHING! (besides unicorns..)
