Thanks For Commenting!

No, I’m not the stalkerazzi tracking your every move on my site! I pinky promise.

I just genuinely wanted to say thanks for commenting.Β  I mean it. Comments make my day and I so enjoy reading them and responding back when I’m able to (I apologize because sometimes I get embarrassingly behind because LIFE and my own terrible time management but I READ EVERY SINGLE ONE). It’s easy to just read and lurk rather than take the time to comment so it means a lot to me that you decided to take the plunge and join the bookish fun here in my little space by way of a comment. Truly, I think you rock.

I hope you liked what you saw here on my site as I’d love for you to swing on by again! I love getting to know the people who create the most amazing community that has made me stick around here blogging about books and other fun things since June 2010.

My goal with this blog is to create a place where I can talk to other insanely awesome bookish people about all the books I’ve read, books I’m excited to read, discuss all things bookish & more! I maintain an honest and conversational reviewing style…I want to you to feel like you are sitting down with a friend over margaritas (or coffee or tea or whatever your heart desires) talking about books. There aren’t any gimmicks here. I just like books and I like to talk about them and I LOVE hearing what you have to say…even if you don’t agree with me! I read and review young adult books, adult fiction books & even a little non-fiction.

So if you’d like to follow the madness here that is The Perpetual Page-Turner, you may want to do one of these things:


I hope to see you around! In the meantime, check out my About Me section to see what I’m all about!


Thanks again!


  1. I really like this little pop up after-you-comment page, that’s really considerate:)

  2. This is cute! Makes you want to stay here forever πŸ˜€

  3. this is so cute! i like this and really want to be friends now and discuss books over chips & salsa (my fave) πŸ™‚

  4. Love this! πŸ˜€

  5. I’m so looking forward to Masque of the Red Death! and I love the cover on Unraveling! Thanks for the giveaway!

  6. Most excited for Masque of Red Death! Who doesn’t love Poe!

  7. Favourites: Life As We Knew It, Delirium. Divergent & Matched (and their sequels) are all right but will not become obsessions. I didn’t really enjoy Under The Never Sky or Blood Red Road– I read them for free and would not read them again. I’ve heard wonderful things about Shatter Me though, I’m debating buying this. And the adult dystopias, because I do love dystopias but YA is usually a hit or miss genre.

    Something to consider: The Scorpio Races helped me when I was trying not to restart The Hunger Games trilogy for about the 1,000 time. It’s not a dystopia, but it isn’t strictly in our “world” if you will. But if you read it, you’ll be in love. That’s my top recommendation if you’re looking for a magical, compelling, and unique YA and doesn’t have to be post-apocalyptic or dystopian. The Host (Stephenie Meyer…MUCH better than Twilight) is also a good sci-fi read.

  8. Awww thatΒ΄s so nice! πŸ˜€

  9. i love this pop-up!

    you might want to include “bloglovin” in your “follow me”. i know a lot of people use this. i use it for the blogs i follow. i’m adding yours now.

  43. Sameena says:

  44. Love this comment page! <3

  45. Aww, this is the sweetest thing! BOOK BLOGGER LOVE FOREVER <3

  46. New adult would definitely have me running the other direction as well.

  47. Love your thank you pop up – my blog is new and not as fancy – I need to make it more fancy!

  48. I love this unexpected pop-up! I wish I could figure out how to do something like that on my blog.

  49. This is super cute!

  50. Love the pop-up! Thanks for make this, Jamie πŸ™‚

  51. Aww this is so sweet! Now I love you even more! <3

  52. Aww… It’s so sweet that you have a pop-up after the comment page!

    I’m already subscribed to your RSS and Twitter πŸ™‚ Really hope to have more conversations with you! Haha, Hope I don’t sound like a stalker here. You get what I mean right? Hahaha.

    May I know how you did this pop-up after the comments? I would love to be able to add this to my blog too!

  53. Jamie, I agree you can’t beat a really good book, but for those that can’t part company with their literary favourites I would say seriously talk to a local storage firm nearby to keep your books for you.

    Sure they’ll charge but you should find rates are lower than you might have thought plus you’ll get the space back in your home you desperately need.

    One thing I’d also mention is to make sure any depot you do choose is close by and open 24 hours for you to gain access to books for those emergency late night reads πŸ˜‰

    BTW I loved your video!

  54. Very nice giveaway. πŸ™‚ Your blog is so cool!

  55. Katiria Rodriguez says:

    I am really excited and I’ve been dying too get my hands for this book because I never read a book about in space before and about two totally strangers stuck in a planet it looks and sounds awesome! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  56. Awe how nice πŸ™‚ I follow you on twitter and was wondering if you had a youtube channel – will check it out. I enjoy this blog whenever you tweet about it and one day will get bloglovin or something similiar to follow your blog and others on there!

  57. Oh yeah, and congrats on Harry Potter πŸ™‚

  58. This page is adorable. Your blog’s adorable. YOU ARE ADORABLE.

  59. Great list! I really need to check out the Delirium series and Not a Drop to Drink. I’ve seen it on a lot of lists today.

  60. I went through a very similar slump but it kind of lasted through the end of 2013. My co-blogger Rachelia and I actually wrote quite an extensive post about our experiences with this. For me personally, I now feel like I’ve found my reading groove again, so to speak… but it certainly took quite a while, which is definitely discouraging. I know how you feel! And hope you feel like your old reading self again soon. It sucks when such a source of comfort is taken away by an inability to love what you used to love, if that makes sense.

  61. Well said

  62. You’re so sweet.Makes me want to comment more:)

  63. Samantha Wallace says:

    I don’t like to part with my books because I like re-reading them again. Thanks for the giveaway!! πŸ™‚

  65. Alessandra says:

    OMG this is too cute! I will comment more now that I have broken the ice!
    Thanks πŸ˜‰

  66. Thanks for this! I’ll be sure to comment more. I’m a middle school ELA teacher and avid reader. I’ve read a few pages of your reviews, and I think you have excellent taste.

  67. Love Maggie’s writing and her art.

  68. I also just realized that all the links I clicked on to load are all links you set me to are other blogs not yours. sad face. But thank you for the helpful advice!!! You rock!

  69. I’m pretty bad at commenting, mostly because I feel like whatever I have to say will come off awkwardly, but I do manage to leave a few here and there. I think I’ll try harder to not care if what I type reads weirdly, haha πŸ™‚

  70. I really like your site. πŸ™‚ I’ll definitely be back.

  71. trillina palemi says:

  77. I love this pop up! I follow you on twitter and read the blog. I love your book recommendations and thoughtful posts you have about books in general πŸ™‚

  78. Aw, I love this pop-up! I’m more of a lurker than a participant in the book blogging community, but I really enjoy reading your posts and reviews! You seem like you would be an awesome person to sit down and talk about books and life with over margaritas! (Or coffee. Either one. πŸ˜‰ )

  79. This was amazing . . . and totally unexpected! Seriously, I’ve never seen anything like this. What a sweet gesture to break the ice, show your amazing personality and encourage more reader engagement! I hope to get to know you more and experience your book adventures!

  85. Love your list! I need to get my hands of The Unexpected Everything, A Study in Charlotte, Just Visiting and The Summer of Chasing Mermaids! I’m so glad pay day was Friday. I completely agree with your recommendation of Emmy and Oliver, so cute. I didn’t love The Start of Me and You so much but I’ve got When We Collide so I’m going to give that a go next. Yours is the second list I’ve seen Something Real on. Definitely need to investigate that one!

    Happy Reading!
