Fab Friday

Guess what people?! It's Friday again!!! This week Lizzie is visiting us! She was incredibly fun to talk to and her blog is amazing.

She told me she's a little computer challenged but she was still able to give me the link to her blog. Visit her at:

When asked why she started her own blog she responded,"Books are life, well for me at least. I loved reading but never had anyone to discuss with.I thought a blog would be the perfect opportunity for my voice to be heard and to start discussions and maybe even introduce people to new things."

She started her blog on Christmas. At the interview she only had 13 subscribers. When I just popped in I saw that she now has 30! That's fantastic!

She had some stuff to say to new bloggers. "I'm a new blogger so I still get advice from people but the main thing I would say is just be yourself. When posting don't be afraid to say something because you think people won't share that opinion. Just go with the flow and do what you want."

Her favorite review is also her first review. It was for The Blood Confession by Alisa Libby.

Here is a snippet of her review. Before I begin, I do warn you to not read this if you are bothered by gore. But anyways, I absolutely loved this book. I found it very intersting that it was based on a true story and I think that it made me want to read it more. This dark novel has the perfect touch of suspense. Throughout the book your emotions go wild: fear, sympathy, and right back to fear again. Definatly a thrilling page turner."

Lastly she told me to post, " A special thanks to Ashley for having me and letting me be a part of her super fun interview!
Happy Reading!"

Thanks Lizzie for joining us! If you would like to be a part of Fab Friday please email me. Also if you would like to receive the newsletter.

Thursday post

I know it's not Thursday but my carpets are getting fixed tomorrow, that means the computer will be unplugged all day :(

This Thursday I had it all planned out to have a thank you post. So here goes...

I would love to thank all the bloggers... Reading your posts give me inspiration and feel like I'm not alone in my nerdy world.

I would like to thank all the YABookSwap members. You guys are so kind and caring. I had a rough week a while back and I felt like I finally had the big sisters I have always wanted. Also with trading it has been great. We can swap ARC's with out feeling guilty. Were actually saving publishers and authors money :)

I would like to thank all the authors who have sent me books. I know by giving free books you may lose a little money but it gives me the chance to blog about books yet to come out. I feel like I have a purpose.

I would lastly like to thank my followers. You guys are great and your comments always make me smile. Its nice to know someone cares about what I have to say.

wednesday wishlist 11

Cover ImageJust Breathe by Susan Wiggs

Cover Image Play Me by Laura Ruby

Hanging on to Max

"I'm Max."

Cover Image Hanging on to Max by Margaret Bechard

~Breaking it down~

Characters 10/10

Uniqueness 10/10

Plot 10/10

Well Developed 10/10

language 8/10

sexual content 6/10

violence/gore 9/10

darkness 9/10

~My Summary~
Sam is supposed to have a great year. He is finally a senior so this year is bound to be amazing. Those plans are ruined when his girlfriend has a baby. The little boy quickly becomes to much for her so he becomes Sam's responsibility. Sam is forced to make tough choices through out, but will they be the right ones?
~My Thoughts~
Hanging on to Max was the best book I have read recently. The story had me falling in love with a character who does not exist. So maybe he's no vampire like Edward Cullen but he's my new hero. Even through all the love I found myself wanting to cry. The story at times grabbed my heart and squeezed. The choices Sam was forced to make are incredibly heart wrenching. You will just want to hug him. Baby Max will have you laughing super hard. Although it was a fairly clean book I would recommend you be at least 14 before reading this. Teen pregnancy is a hard topic and not one that all parents want their pre-teens or young children reading.

Just when she's got about as much stress as she can handle, Lozzie and her best mate Dex stumble upon a tantalizing mystery-it seems Mr. Barnett is being blackmailed. But who on earth would blackmail a bore like him, and why? As they delve deeper into the mystery, questions pile on top of questions, and the one thing that does become clear is that danger can lurk in totally unexpected places . . .

Fab Friday

Wow another fab Friday. Mine is particularly fab because I have a 9 day weekend! Lucky, I know. Anyways. Here is Steph! You can see her blog at

Why did you start it?
Would it satisfy you to know that I did it on impulse after months of deliberation? Because that’s so what happened. Also, I’m really opinionated. It works out pretty well.

How many people subscribe?
I actually have no idea. Google Reader has been stalled since October and I’m stuck with that same reader count. It’s most distressing.

Any advice for new bloggers?
Can I count myself in this group of new bloggers? I would hate to be the alternative: old. :) But all kidding aside, I would say this: STOP.

Stats are not for checking every three nanoseconds. Once a day should do, otherwise you become mentally unstable like me.

Time is key. Almost no huge/monumental/omgazz blog was born overnight and expecting your audience to be that huge within, like, a couple of hours is stupid. You’re setting yourself up for disappointment. Just chill and let the chips fall where they may, yeah?

Obsessed with free books? Don’t be. The sad reality is that most bloggers don’t get their entire stash for free, or if they do, they’re usually so pressed tight for reviews the joy of blogging is all but vanquished.

Professionalism. It is muy importante, my friend. Keep your promises, be courteous, and never post anything that is not the best it can be. In fact, professionalism is the most important thing, I think, and the only reason it’s not at the top is because STOP is catchier than POTS.

What is your favorite review you have written?
Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan. I am just a lot better at negatives than I am at positives. No idea why.

Can we have a snippet?
Note: My review was language heavy to mirror (and mock) the book’s love affair with “fuck”.

My main fucking problem is that the wavelength for this novel is something like:

Brilliant Observations, Banter, What-have-you

(Repeat for 183 incredibly long pages.)
And that’s it!

Thanks Ashley for inviting me to do this, and I hope everyone enjoyed the interview. If you want to get in on my campaign for world domination or simply need to see with your own eyes what it’s like to be supremely obsessed with books, pop on by.

Steph: Thanks so much for this wonderful interview. Some how the link to your review vanished. If you wanna send it again I will post it. So sorry! :(

Everyone: If you wanna be involved send me an email! The questions will change so you are welcome to go again! I am also making a newsletter. Want it? EMAIL ME!

wednesday wishlist- 10

Wow it's week 10 already. This week we have five great looking books.

Cover Image Up For Renewal by Cathy Alter

By age thirty-seven, Cathy Alter had made a mess of her life. With a failed marriage already under her belt, she was continuing down the path of poor decisions, one paved with a steady stream of junk food, unpaid bills, questionable friends, and highly inappropriate men. So she sat down and asked herself what she truly wanted. A decent guy. A nicer home. More protein. When she took a closer look at her wants, she noticed something that seemed very familiar -- with the addition of exclamation points, her list could easily be transformed into the cover lines on every women's magazine: Find the love you deserve! Paint to the rescue! Eggs-actly perfect meals!

Cover Image Top 8 by Katie Finn
Madison MacDonald is seriously freaking out Madison MacDonald
Putnam, CT
Status: Single?
About Me: Everything in my life was working out. I had my three best friends, a brand-new boyfriend, and the lead in the school play. Aside from that history paper I hadn't started, things felt perfect. Then I returned from spring break to find my Friendverse profile hacked. Someone clearly out to ruin me had spilled the most damaging secrets - AND posted the worst photos of me ever taken - online. Now my boyfriend and I are broken up, half the school hates me, and I'm in deep trouble.
Goals: Get my boyfriend back, figure out who could have done this, and clear my name! Also, pass history.
Cover Image Amor and Summer Secrets by Diana Rodriguez Wallach
For fifteen-year-old Mariana Ruiz, it's not so much an unexpected vacation as a literal "guilt trip"-her father's way of atoning for ignoring his Puerto Rican roots. But freedom from her parents is little compensation for being forced to spend two months with complete strangers rather than with her best friends in Philadelphia.
Cover Image Boy Toy by Barry Lyga
Josh Mendel has a secret. Unfortunately, everyone knows what it is. Five years ago, Josh's life changed. Drastically. And everyone in his school, his town—seems like the world—thinks they understand. But they don't—they can't. And now, about to graduate from high school, Josh is still trying to sort through the pieces. First there's Rachel, the girl he thought he'd lost years ago. She's back, and she's determined to be part of his life, whether he wants her there or not.Then there are college decisions to make, and the toughest baseball game of his life coming up, and a coach who won't stop pushing Josh all the way to the brink. And then there's Eve. Her return brings with it all the memories of Josh's past. It's time for Josh to face the truth about what happened. If only he knew what the truth was . . .
Cover Image Runaway by Wendelin Van Draanen
Holly is in her fifth foster home in two years and she's had enough. She's run away before and always been caught quickly. But she's older and wiser now--she's twelve--and this time she gets away clean.

Guest review

Wow it's been a while since I've had a guest review. The blog spotlighted in this one is: be sure to check it out.

Title: I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone

Author: Stephenie Kuehnert

Summary: The Clash. Social Distortion. Dead Kennedys. Patti Smith. The Ramones.Punk rock is in Emily Black's blood. Her mother, Louisa, hit the road to follow the incendiary music scene when Emily was four months old and never came back. Now Emily's all grown up with a punk band of her own, determined to find the tune that will bring her mother home. Because if Louisa really is following the music, shouldn't it lead her right back to Emily?

Review: This is the debut novel by Stephenie Keuhnert and I absolutely love it!! This story dealt with so much emotion and it was written beautifully. With stories told from both Emily and Louisa, you get total understanding of the story. You feel sympathetic for both Emily and Louisa and find yourself cheering them on in their lowest points. This book definitely showed how real life can be and showed the horrors of drugs and alcohol. Emily's story was just so real and I just completely fell in love with her character. I was definitely crying at the end of this book. This book gets beyond 5 stars and I cannot wait for her next novel coming out later this year!! Warning: There is reference to alcohol, drug use, and other very serious issues

Thanks so much to bookworm for this fabulous review. If you would like to post a review on my blog please email me!

Coming soon Must Monday 5 -Late :(

Hey guys I'm so sorry this is late. I was having a bad day yesterday and didnt wanna take it out on you guys :)

Fab Friday

This week we have bella aire of not so closet geeks here with us.

What is the link to your blog?
We actually have two Not So Closet Geek sister sites: and The MySpace has a bit more clutter but also a little more detail. The BlogSpot tends to be more organized. Otherwise, the sites are nearly identical. It usually comes down to whether our readers frequent MySpace or BlogSpot more.

Why did you start it?
This summer I came across a popular MySpace book review site know as Book Chic. I loved the idea of reviewing books. At the time, my bookshelf already resembled a small library, and I gave my friends recommendations constantly.. It just made sense to make the recommendations more in depth and widespread. Most of the review sites I noticed were run by one or two people, but the majority of my friends are wonderful readers, so I decided to include them in my little book review scheme. Now there are 6 semi-active NSCG reviewers involved: Angela, Liesel, Viola, Halley, Nora, and Bella Aire (me). There are two other people interested in reviewing. If they’re serious enough about it, we’ll be seeing some reviews from them in the future. Hmmm. I may have gotten slightly off topic here. Ooops.

When did you start it?
I think the MySpace site was created in early July, but it wasn’t really active for a few months. The BlogSpot was probably created in October.

How many people subscribe?
Oh, dear. This is where my computer incompetence gets me in trouble. I added a little “subscribe to” thingee mahbobber to the BlogSpot about a week and a half ago, but I don’t know how to figure out how many subscribers there are (if any). I also added the “follow” feature at the same time (we currently have only 12 followers- feel free to join ;D). On MySpace we have 500 friends (and 4 subscribed readers- again, all are welcome to join). I’d like to thank our 16 official readers. You guys are amazing!

Any advice for new bloggers?
Use the blogs you love as inspiration for your blog, but avoid stealing their ideas. For book review sites, I suggest starting with the popular In My Mailbox feature that The Story Siren has generously shared with all bloggers. If you start this feature, you can leave a link of the post on The Story Siren’s blog. This may gather a bit of blog publicity. For more about this feature, check out The Story Siren’s blog here: I’ve also heard that hosting contests gets more readers.. Due to a complication (the NSCGs lack cash for shipping), we’ve never been able to do this, but contests have attracted me to tons of blogs in the past. Remember to blog for the love of blogging and not for ulterior motives.

What is your favorite review posted on your blog?
Hmmm. I’ll pick from one of my own reviews, since I’m more familiar with them. I’d say Triple Shot Bettys in Love by Jody Gehrman. I think it may be because it’s a great book, and the review has some fun words in it…abstruse…besotted…sabotage…dynamic…provocative…boyfriend stealing demon… I may have gone a little overboard, now that I think about it, but it was still fun to write.

Can we have a snipet?
Of course!
“In great contrast to Geena's muddled relationship with Ben is her mother's stable relationship with her new boyfriend. Nothing seems to be going right for Geena as her life grows more intricate and abstruse…I loved the dynamic relationship between Geena and Ben and watched in horror as Sophie sabotaged it. And Sophie was truly the boyfriend stealing demon from every girl's nightmares. She proved a fashionable, sleek, and provocative opponent for a not-so-fashionable, slightly insecure skater girl like Geena. At first, readers may be unsure if Geena's views of Sophie stem from Geena's insecurities or from actuality. But by the end, readers will have no doubts of Sophie's true motives. Though Sophie may add to the problems between Geena and Ben, the greatest enemy is Geena's insecurity which is magnified when the Sophie-catalyst is added to the equation. Her feelings of inadequacy are emotions thousands of teenage girls can empathize with.”

Sea of Love

"P.S. I love you."
Cover Image Sea of Love by Jamie Ponti
~Break it down~
Characters 10/10
Uniqueness 10/10
Plot 10/10
Well-developed 9/10
Language 8/10
sexual content 8/10
violence 10/10
darkness 9/10
Darby has just moved to Florida because of her dad's midlife crisis. She is missing NYC and that is making her hate Coconut beach. Then someone shows up that just might be able to turn it all around. That is, if the evil witch Monica leaves it alone and a certain someone else packs their bags, dragging their rich butt home.
~My thoughts~
I had never read a Simon Romantic Comedy before but this was sure the way to start. The first couple chapters were super boring but once the author got going there was no stopping. It was one of "those" novels, the kind you cant put down. Needless to say I'm exhausted from my late night of reading.
Challenge State: Florida

Books I havent seen around- 1

Hey guys. This is a two part special called books I haven't seen around. If you like it let me know, maybe I'll do it more often. So here is part one.

Cover Image Of course after I find The Bridesmaid I see it on one blog. It is written by Hailey Abbott. Here is what it says on barnes and noble:
After years of watching couples come to blows over ice sculptures, Abby wants no part of the family business. She’d rather spend weekends kicking a soccer ball or antagonizing Noah, the cute son of a famous pastry chef–not doing the Electric Slide.
Then Abby’s barely legal sister, Carol, does the unthinkable–she announces she’s getting married and wants Abby to be her maid of honor. Clearly, Carol has lost her mind! Will Abby soon lose hers?
So what if Carol turns into Bridezilla? So what if the dresses are hideous? So what if the invitations get messed up? So what if Noah looks extra hot with frosting in his hair? Abby can handle it. After all, it’s just one day. Right?
Cover Image I still have yet to see The Decoding of Lana Morris around. It is written by Laura and Tom McNeal. Barnes and Noble says this about it:
Sixteen-year-old Lana Morris wishes her life were different, that she were somewhere else, someone else. Her foster mother wants her gone, she's stuck taking care of the other kids in the house, she longs to become closer to her foster father, and the only cool people around refuse to acknowledge her. Then Lana stumbles into Miss Hekkity's mysterious shop, and she begins to realize that she might actually have the power to change things—to make some of her wishes come true. But wishing isn't always as harmless as it seems. . . .
Cover Image I have also never seen Finding Grace by Alyssa Brugman. With a cover like this I'd remember it. Barnes and Noble says:
RACHEL HAS JUST graduated from high school and thinks she knows everything. Well, maybe not quite everything. Then she meets the mysterious Mr. Preston, who offers her a live-in job looking after Grace—a brain injured woman with a lovely house, grasping sisters, feral neighbors, and a box full of unfinished business. As Rachel tries to cope with the demands of her employment and the start of college, she’s also determined to fit together the pieces that were Grace’s former life. The more she finds out about the woman in her care, the more Rachel finds herself.
Cover Image Girl 15, Charming but Insane looks really good. The author is Sue Limb. Barnes and Noble says:
Like any self-respecting girl her age, Jess wants to be devastatingly gorgeous, popular, and intelligent. But unfortunately, her best friend, Flora, has beaten her to it. Now Jess needs a new focus. The stunningly gorgeous Ben Jones seems the obvious choice. But can Ben Jones focus on anything that takes longer than a free kick? Perhaps Fred, who's sweet and clever but really needs a haircut, will help Jess through her teen-life crisis. But what of Flora's long-held secret crush? With her particular combination of charm and insanity, Jess heroically tries to keep it all together—with hilarious results
Cover Image Girl (nearly) 16, Absolute Torture is also written by Sue Limb. Barnes and Noble says:
Just when things were going so well.
Jess had the perfect summer planned: She and Fred, lounging in the park, gazing into one another’s eyes and engaging in witty repartee. It was going to be so romantic. And then her maddening mum stepped in: She suddenly announced a two-week “road trip” to Cornwall to visit Jess’s dad, something Jess might have enjoyed, actually, were it not for the monstrously bad timing. Not only will this force Jess and Fred apart for two whole weeks, it will also leave the darling and handsome Fred in the clutches of Jess’s blindingly beautiful best friend, Flora—who, you might recall, expressed an interest in Fred not too long ago. As if all this weren’t enough, Jess’s mum seems to expect her to weep at the grave of every departed literary hero in Britain’s long history. It’s absolute torture. And little does Jess know, a huge surprise awaits her when she visits her dad at his home for the first time in years.
