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!

a kindle paperwhite!!!! Gah I love it so so so much, I had a kindle fire that I was reading on before, but I hated reading on it cause it would hurt my eyes, so my parents surprised me with the kindle paperwhite for Christmas! Thanks mom and dad! (: 

Sorry I have been so MIA lately from the blog, I've been enjoying life, but it's a new year and it's time to get back on track with my book blog, so expect to see posts coming in often again!

In the next few days I'm going to be doing my Top Reads of 2013 post, which will include 2 giveaways, one with my top favorite YA novels, and another giveaway with my top NA/Adult reads of 2013! So keep an eye out for that post! (: 

What books did you get this week?

Ooh, lots of good books, I have had Ink and The School for Good & Evil in my TBR pile for months, I really should get round to them. What a lovely surprise your new kindle must have been!

Good to hear you will be posting more. :)

And that's great that you got a new Kindle!!

That's great you got a Kindle Paperwhite. I got one for graduation last year, and it's the only e-reader I've ever had but I do love it. Makes reading so easy!

Yay for getting back to blogging! I hope you had a fun, relaxing holiday, Haley, happy to see you back at it. I was like holy ebook haul and then I saw that you got the new Paperwhite and it all clicked. I have the new Paperwhite too and I absolutely love it! Now when I have a book in print and ebook I will choose to read the ebook version! I hope you love all of your new goodies!
