Review Posting Schedule Change

My Dear, Lovely Fellow Bibliophiles:

The time has come to make some changes to how many reviews I post weekly. This has happened before, as any longtime readers knows. I used to post reviews 3 times a week and for a short period I even posted reviews 5 times a week!

Wow - the good ol' days!

However, now I am an adult with a full-time job, which already makes it a struggle to read as much as I used to. Now I am also adding another big time consumer to my life: college classes.

Yes, I am now going to be pursuing higher education!

It's wonderful but also carries with it some sobering realities - I will not have even as much free time as I have now, which has already decreased dramatically from my early years with this blog.

As I do not want to put too much pressure on myself to read when I just may not be able to - only 1 review will post per week at the Bibliophile Support Group for the foreseeable future.

This will be every Wednesday.

This has an impact on authors, publishers and publicists that may reach out to me to review their books, as well. Would I love to read and review every book that is sent to me?

You bet your bottom dollar!

Can I? No - not even close. Already I have huge piles of books that I do not know when I will get to read them. Perhaps in my golden years?

So - if you are an author, publicist or publisher - the only way I can guarantee that I will read and review your book is if you email me first and I confirm it. Otherwise, I may not be able to get to it - or it may take a VERY long time.

I thank you all for your understanding and support.

Hopefully one review a week will still bring to your attention some great novels and fun reading!

Reckless

Reckless is a YA fantasy adventure by the ever-revered (for good reason) Cornelia Funke.

Jacob Reckless has been passing through a mirror portal in his father's forgotten (or, rather, ignored) study for years now. After his father disappeared and his mother became a shell of her former self, he found it. Since then, it's been hard to stay tethered to his world - instead, he's become more and more connected to the alternative option.

In fact, he's managed to make a name for himself as a treasure hunter. And always by his side is a loyal vixen named Fox, a shape-shifter. She's probably the closest thing he has to a friend - but Jacob still considers himself a loner. But he's become comfortable with the different creatures, monsters, and magic this world has to offer - even though right now they are at war with a stone people called Goyl. None of that interests him. He just seeks out his mysterious objects and fetches good prices.

But that's all about to change. …

Real Live Boyfriends

Real Live Boyfriends is a YA contemporary novel by E. Lockhart, and the fourth novel in the Ruby Oliver quartet.

Here we are on the last day of “Ruby Oliver Week” and if you aren’t already reading these books – well, why not?

But I’m more than sure most of you are – and hopefully you’re all caught up, and therefore not at risk of being spoiled by my review of Real Live Boyfriends. You’ve been warned!

Ruby Oliver is beginning her senior year of high school with a real live boyfriend: Noel.

At least she thought she was.

After having spent the rest of junior year and the beginning of summer being fully in love (okay, they never actually said the word, but the vibes were strongly in that direction), Ruby is now confused.

Again.

When Noel went to visit his brother in New York for a while, almost every day they talked on the phone and exchanged funny emails. She never once felt insecure.

Until all of a sudden – communication stopped. Ruby would call and he wouldn’t answer. She’d leave a voice mai…

Titanic: S.O.S.

S.O.S. is the third and final book in Gordon Korman's middle-grade Titanic trilogy.

This is the third book in a trilogy, book addicts! You must, I repeat, must read the first two books (Unsinkable and Collision Course) before you read this review. Otherwise you are just going to ruin all the twists! Sure, we know the Titanic sinks - but the surprises that are revealed about our characters, among other things, should not be spoiled!

But all of you that have read the first two books (which I hope are many of you, because this a great series), can rest assured that I won't spoil anything from S.O.S. itself - just a basic recap and my opinion.

Here goes:

The Titanic is sinking. No one wants to believe it, but the bow is almost imperceptibly starting to dip into the freezing Atlantic Ocean - and our four main characters are thrown into a race for survival.

Paddy is locked up below deck, having finally been caught as a stowaway. In one cell over are the very criminals that wish him dead…
