    I was just wondering if there is any way you could have a random button for reviews. I think it would be a fun way to flip through your reviews.

  2. Recommendations of dystopian books in adult novels – ‘Earth Abides’ by George Stewart. A classic! For more current books (many on your list too) go to:

  3. Cool site! Found you on pinterest!

    Hi Jamie,

    I just wanted to say thank you for the fabulous book reviews! I am one of those people who live in fear of not having a good book to read before bed every night and your blog has helped me out so much! I keep a running list of books to read that you’ve blogged about and it’s so fun to be able to read reviews from someone with similar tastes in books! Thanks so much!

    Aubrey Hammer

    • Thank you for your kind words, Aubrey! Hope you’ve been able to find some great reads!! 🙂 Sounds like we are kindred spirits. I can’t sleep unless I know I have my next book picked out haha

  5. I’m not even sure how I came across your blog, but I have to say I {puffy heart} it very, very much! Keep it rockin’!

  6. Hi Jamie,

    I absolutely adore your blog!!! I think I somehow came across it on pinterest, and let me tell you, I am so very glad I did!! Your blog has helped me find so many great books to read, because we have such similar taste in books! Reading your blog inspires me to start my own book blog, but I don’t know where to start. Do you have any suggestions and tips for starting and maintaining a good blog?

    Thank you so much for all the time and effort you put into your blog, I truly do appreciate it 🙂 <3

  7. Hi Jamie!

    I hope your day is going awesome. Just wanted to let you know I’ve nominated your blog for the Liebster Award.

  8. You have to, have to, HAVE TO read The Assassin’s Curse by Cassandra Rose Clarke. Look it up and I bet you you’ll run to go get it right away~!

    Hi Jamie,
    Just finished reading your beginnings and endings post and I think the quote you sited from John Green was actually the beginning of his “Paper Towns”, not “Looking for Alaska” which I only know because I just finished reading Towns. Thanks! hope you are enjoying your vacation!

  10. Hi Jamie!
    I love your blog so much, it’s my all-time favourite. It actually inspired me to start my own blog, which I did, about 10 minutes ago. I was wondering if you had any tips for new bloggers that might help me?

  11. I’m your twitter PA stalker -Thebrokenshelf. ha ha! I love your blog!

  12. I adore your blog! Love reading your reviews and book recommendations! Im an aspiring book blogger and hope to have a blog as great as this one!!

  13. Hi! I’m really enjoying following your blog, so I’ve nominated you for a Liebster Award.

  14. Hey, I was wondering if you’d be interested in writing a ‘My Writing Process’ post for a blog tour.
    If you are, get in touch with me at my blog:

  15. Just wanted to say that I love reading your posts that I have sent to my email regularly….I’ve discovered some amazing music as well as random books/movies I hadn’t heard of. Love your choices 🙂

    Keep up the general awesomeness!

    • Aw thank you, Mollie! I really appreciate you reaching out to me and saying that! I’m glad that you’ve discovered some stuff you love! I’m always up for recs myself if you ever feel like sharing!! 🙂

  16. Sorry to bother you, but I don’t actually see the image of the Judgement card on the Maggie Stiefvater Tarot Tour page. If I have missed a link, I apologize…. but could you point me to it? Thank you, and have a lovely day.

    Hey Jamie!
    First of all, I love your blog, your are amazing!
    Also, I’ve been thinking about starting my own book blog but I’m worried about adding in pictures (e.g. photos from google) because of the copyright issues. How do you handle this on your blog?
    I’d be really grateful to hear back from you, you are such an inspiration!

    • Thanks for the sweet words <3

      I either use my own (pictures or make my own graphics) or find pics through Creative Commons (and credit appropriately). On occasion I'll buy an stock image! I think Rachel at Parajunkee has a series on finding pics for your blog if you want to check that out!

  18. i nominated for you for the blogger recognition award! here’s the link!

  19. LOVE your blog!! I like the variety of your posts and your book suggestions seem to be in line with my ‘likes’!
    I was just curious if you have ever attended a book expo or literature conference and wanted your thoughts on if they are worth a trip. There is one outside of Chicago put on by Anderson’s book shop (12th annual YA Literature Conference) which takes place in October and I am tempted to go but looking for someone to tell me its the right type of adventure! Any thoughts? I know BEA is HUGE and quite the experience but not living anywhere near NYC makes it quite a book splurgy weekend…like beyond what my pocketbook allows!


    • Why thank you!! <3

      I've been to Book Expo 5x and I've done ALA as well as RT Convention along with some smaller type conferences/expos for books! Totally worth it! You get to meet other book lovers and authors and learn about new books! It's great! And pssst BEA is in Chicago this coming year so if you love the YA Lit Conference then definitely look into it!

  20. Love your blog! I’m a huge reader and and reading your blog has definitely helped to pull me out of reading slumps as everything you write just inspires me.

    I am curious though, do you review everything that you finish? Or are there some books that don’t really fit in with your readership that you don’t review.

    Thanks for all you do!!!

    May the books be with you!

    • Thank you for the kind words!! I *typically* review everything I finish but sometimes if I have nothing to say about it I won’t. Sometimes I’ll just do a “What I’ve Been Reading” post so I won’t have to actually review it but just talk about the fact I read it. Or like if I read something super specific (for example a non-fiction dog training book) I won’t review that haha.

  21. I adore your book blog. I’m a book worm and a big reader too. I cant wait to read all of your reviews and add even more books to my overflowing to-read book list!!!

    I really like all of the different things included in your blog. Book reviews (well of course), retail therapy, discussions, lists and more. Im curious….do you come up with random discussion questions or things you’re curious about and then post them? And for your lists, how do you come up with all of those fun interesting posts? I will definitely continue following your blog. I love it!!

    • THank you so much!! And yeah I pretty much just posts whatever comes into my head haha. I get ideas at the most random times!

  22. I am a 9th grade English teacher and looking for mystery novels which take place outside of the United States and Europe (already covered those). Any suggestions?

  23. Hey Jamie! Was wondering if you are going to do a book review on Champion, by Marie Lu! I read the first two books and FREAKING LOVED IT LIKE DAY OH MY LORD but am really nervous about reading the final installment because WHAT IF ITS NOT EVERYTHING AND MORE??? so yeah haha just hoping you could do a review on that book because I’m really scared to read it and I need someone else’s opinion!

    P.S. I love your blog xx
