NetGalley is 3x more cool! & some “read now” picks

I hinted at some awesome NetGalley updates in one of my Book Expo America posts, and yesterday those updates finally happened! So what’s different? Basically, there’s a few more options to organize books on your dashboard. It’s now broken up into several sections: New On My Shelf, Reading List (aka to be read/currently reading), Finish and Send Feedback (aka to be reviewed), and Pending Requests/Auto Approvals. Here’s a little video detailing how it works: I Read More …

Happy release day, The Whole Story of Half a Girl!

Today’s January 10th and that means it’s the official release date for The Whole Story of Half a Girl by Veera Hiranandani! I reviewed TWSOHAG back in November (read it here) and I really enjoyed it. If you like contemporary MG/YA fiction, where the focus is on personal development and not romance, then I’m sure you’d like The Whole Story of Half a Girl, too!

Happy release day, Tuesdays at the Castle!

I loved this book when I reviewed it back in July and I still love it now. If you need a reminder (and I’m sure you do): I adored this book. I loved everything about it.

Happy release day Dead End in Norvelt & First Descent!

Two awesome books come out today! I’m a sucker for YA books set during the summer, probably because it reminds me of my own childhood summers. Of course, I never did any of the things Jack does in this book, not only because the book is set in the 1950s but also because I’ve never been in the middle of a murder spree, the friend of a fiesty old lady, or grounded for more than Read More …
