Newsletter 8 Part One

If you know someone who would like to receive this have them email Ashley at

  • Hi, everyone! My name is Maggie: obsessive reader, writer, and creator of BeanBagBooks.
I primarily read and review from the YA genre, but occasionally from Adult. My reviews are quite honest--I don't sugar-coat things. If I don't enjoy a book, then I'll tell you, and vice versa. Along with reviews, I am a member of Waiting on Wednesday, where I preview a book that is yet to be released.

I also have a second blog, called Musings of a Fledgling Writer. There, I post about the various thoughts that circle through my head in a given day. It's kind of random, but a fun place to escape to.

So, hopefully you readers will check out my blogs and enjoy them. Happy Reading!

  • Hey I'm Jill from Reading is Bliss where I review any and all YA fiction I can get my hands on. I started this blog in January and I love it more and more every day. I love books and I love to speak my opinion which makes reviewing books sort of a must for me. I participate in IMM and try to update as frequently as I can. I also host contests, guest blogs, and interviews. My reviews are always honest while still bringing out the best points with the worst in every book I review. My favorite part of blogging is being involved in such a wonderful and welcoming book blog community made up of people just like you. Thanks for being so amazing! And be sure to check out my blog Reading is Bliss. Thanks!

Stolen by Lucy Christopher

From the author's website: Gemma, a British city-living teenager, is kidnapped while on holiday with her parents. Her kidnapper, Ty, takes her to the wild land of outback Australia. To Gemma’s city-eyes, the landscape is harsh and unforgiving and there are no other signs of human life for hundreds of kilometres in every direction. Here, there is no escape. Gemma must learn to deal with her predicament, or die trying to fight it.

Stolen is a brilliant book, and is one that I think will appeal to a wide range of readers. It's shocking and, at times, difficult to read. It explores obsession, love, and the boundaries that lie between each. It's only published in the UK at the moment, but if you can get hold of a copy, I'd highly recommend it!
