I'm a 24-year-old who loves reading and talking about books. I enjoy reading all genres and I'd never say "no" to a book that looks promising. My blog focuses on Fantasy and YA because this kind of light, relaxing reads help me take my mind off things. But you'll probably find other genres as well (Contemporary, Classic, Sci-Fi), as I never hesitate when it comes to recommending amazing books.
My reviews are honest and highly subjective, reflecting exactly what I think about a book at the moment I finish it. It did happen to me to change my mind the second time I read something, so I strongly believe it all depends on how a book makes you feel and the messages you're open to at a certain moment. In my opinion, a great book will tell you a different story every time you re-read it.

Hi Oana, my name is Larry Rodness and I am inquiring about receiving a review on my newest YA novel entitled, "Perverse", published by Itoh Press in both print and electronic formats. Synopsis as follows:
19 year old Emylene Stipe is a 2nd generation Goth who, like every teenage girl, is trying to find her place in the world. One night she comes upon an old painting in an antique store and is compelled to purchase it. When she brings it home an image of a young woman appears in the sketch and then magically materializes in her apartment. Emylene nick-names her 'Poinsettia' and they soon become fast friends. But Poinsettia has an ulterior motive for her sudden and strange intrusion into her host's life which causes Emylene to question her whole belief system.

Would you be interested in having my new release, FORBIDDEN FOREST on your blog? I'd love to shoot you a free review copy, if you like. Let me know. Thanks. : )
