My brand new book blog!

I just made my first blog and I would love for all of my B&N friends to follow me there!  For those of you familiar with me already, you don't need much info, but for any new users, I am mostly interested in young adult, fantasy, sci-fi, non-fiction, historical fiction, psychology (both fiction and non), dystopians and humor. 

 

I posted my first review (since I finished it today) and it was of Zombies vs. Unicorns.  I've also added my shelf of e-books and a couple widgets.  Feel free to offer any advice or feedback and thanks for checking it out if you do!

Re: My brand new book blog!

Thanks so much Hunger Games and I think you need to have a Google account or similar to sign in with for comments, but I can read them here too just as well!  I really, really, really love it too!  Haha.  I love how soft it feels in my hands and the texture of all the graphics.  If getting my NookColor inspired a renewed love of reading, then this cover definitely will too!  I can't wait to go select my next option to read tonight!

I just read your blog, and thanks, now I'm going to read Frozen ((or Skinned as it's called here)) because it sounds really good and I'd never heard about it before! :smileyvery-happy: Have a great day!

Thanks!  It's so exciting to think people are stopping by over there and reading my reviews!  I had never heard of Frozen/Skinned either until I was drawn in by the interesting new cover while browsing, but I'm so glad I happened across it.  Not only for myself, but so I could share the story with other people too!  I think I'm going to start the second one soon.  I am just reading something different in between for a review.    :smileyhappy:

 

My brother just saw my blog yesterday and he said he could draw or design something for me, so maybe he'll make me a super awesome header!  He's extremely talented when it comes to art, so I can't wait to see what he does for me.  He works a lot though, so who knows how long it might take him. He likes drawing robots, guns, machina, etc. so the picture will probably having something like that in it, but I figured it would be ok because I love sci-fi and dystopians and I can be like a character in one of those books if he draws me like that.

Re: My brand new book blog!

Haha I know, I have just started my own book blog, but I can't imagne many people coming and looking at it! But I'm still going to do it, as it's something for me to do other than read books all day! Awesome, I don't normally go in book shops, my family don't really like books :smileysad: and my library is rubbish, they have hardly anything! Oh well, haha. Oh cool, I didn't realise it was a series! Now I'm excited, I can't wait to read it :smileyvery-happy:

 

Aw awesome, that sounds really good! I really hope he finds time to it for you!

 

Hope you have a great day! :smileyhappy:

Re: My brand new book blog!

I think they are for discussing new releases, and you say good things then get a free copy.

Unfortunately they are being closed so they soon will not matter.

Yeah, welcome to Teen Reads over at B&N, the best forums to talk about books anywhere! 

 

I like your name too Starbuckx, because I love Starbucks blended iced coffees.  :smileyhappy:  Now I'll always want one when I see your name though!  :smileysurprised:  Oh well lol.  :smileyvery-happy:

 

You should post a link to your blog on here.  I would like to follow it and I'm sure a bunch of the people here would as well!  This is a pretty supportive community.
