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!

Fantastic books, Haley! Especially the Dream Slayer and Darkness Before Dawn... I'm very jealous! :)

You're so adorable! I don't know if it's just my internet connection, but there were two spots in the video where it went black and white, then sped up so you sounded chipmunk-y. But cute chipmunk-y. I love fairy tale retellings, and Once looks incredible. I'll definitely be checking that one out!

Here's my book haul:

I want to read Darkness Before Dawn. Haven't heard of the other books, but the Insanity cover is really interesting. Just read the summary on goodreads. It sounds kinda like Shatter Me where she's locked up and going insane lol. My Sunday Post/STS

MUULAAAAAAAAAAAAN?!?!?!! WHAAAA?! *BUY BUY BUY BUUUUY!!* who ever doesn't Mulan is CRAAAY CRRAY. Also have you seen the trailer for the movie from Disney, Brave? doesn't it look like the Celtic version of Mulan? haha. I also heard great things about Inhale (also from Kara!) and I can't wait to read it myself! I hope you like it too :D (you should review it!! I like it when people review adult books) Insanity's cover is really pretty plus the summary sounds good. Happy reading :D

Sara @ Forever 17 Books said...

Insanity! I am buying that book this week and will be part of a book tour for it! Can't wait to read. Darkness Before Dawn is another one that sounds good. Enjoy! :)

Cameron Dokey <3 Her books are AWESOME! I haven't read the Cinderella retelling yet, but Mulan was great :) I hope you are going to love the three books in Once! (and the cover is really pretty. I'm still deciding whether I'm going to buy each of them seperate or this one.)

Happy reading!

My review for Darkness went up today, I hope you enjoy it more than I did! It was definitely a fun read, but nothing memorable. Hope you enjoy all your books this week lady!

I think your camera did a good job, the video was nice and clear!
OMG, Amazon have sent me different covers to the one they have pictured before and its so annoying isn't it, I try and act like I'm not bothered but it does niggle away at me, ha!
Darkness Before Dawn looks cool, the cover really reminds me of the Fallen series though!
