Review: Rippler by Cidney Swanson

Review: Rippler by Cidney Swanson

Cidney Swanson is the first author I’ve had the privilege of talking to (if only via email and twitter). I want to give a special thanks Cidney for her generosity in giving me a copy of this! It was my first experience with Kindle…I figured I would hate reading on an electronic device, but surprisingly it wasn’t too bad. It’s not something I’d prefer over holding the real tangible thing in my hands (and the smell of books…mmmm). But I […]

Review: Matched by Ally Condie

Review: Matched by Ally Condie

I was really confused at the beginning because things weren’t explained right away…like the pills, what the heck are the pills?!

2012 Contemporary Reading Challenge

2012 Contemporary Reading Challenge

You’re supposed to read a set number from each category, but I’m kinda making my own rules for this one. The point of me participating in this is to get outside of my comfort zone in genres, and contemporary isn’t something I usually read. I had some trouble finding older contemps I wanted to read, so I’m just going to set my overall goal at 15 total, no matter what year they were released. The pictures are just some ideas […]
