RobertaÂ R. is a senior blogger with a penchant forÂ YAÂ books. Her love of music has landed her a job as a host for a local radio station. Her fancy for TV series, Â from police procedural to sci-fi to urban fantasy, causes her to experiment wild adventures with too many fictional characters in her night dreams. Her urge to spread the love for overlookedÂ YAÂ novels drove her to start her blog,Â OffbeatÂ YA, in 2012. It started with a book. It always does. In 1997, I stumbled upon the blurb of a 8 year old Christopher Pike novel, Remember Me, inÂ the YA section of a book catalogue. Please take special note of the following: I wasn’t familiar with his stuff, or with the whole YA phenomenon for that matter (what with being in Italy); I was already past the age of reading YA novels…or so I thought. I was only going through the whole catalogue because I’d read pretty much anything, telephone address books included.Â But the image of a deceased girl who sets on investigating her own murder began to haunt meÂ to the point that I impulsively went out and bought the book. Little did I know at the time that such a simple action would have started my love affair with afterlife novels…and Pike himself (IÂ mean his writer persona of course…). The fact is, I simply love everything about afterlife novels. […]

Interrupting our regularly scheduled TTT Thursday post’s I’d like to introduce you to the Book Bratz’s Summer Blogger Promo Tour.Â I’ve been really busy this summer, traveling all over the country. I teach braille in the summer with the National Federation of the Blind’s BELL program. I also just got back from an amazing road trip vacation. San Francisco Â Badlands National Park The Grand Canyon Yellowstone National Park So I’ve been really busy. I signed up for the blogger promo tour too and I’m really excited about participating. So every Sunday until the end of August, I will be posting an intro to a different blogger. On Thursday’s instead of TTT Thursday, I will be posting a picture an description of where I am and what I’m doing, since every week I will be somewhere new. It will be busy, but I know you will love getting to know these bloggers as much as I have.
Welcome to the Fandomly Bookish blog tour! This is the first one I’ve been invited to do. I love free books as much as the next girl, so I hope that I’m invited back! If you like free books too, then read to the end for the giveaway! Synopsis Nellie Canlas loves her job. She loves being assistant to reality TV star and wedding planner goddess, the fabulous Charlotte Bertram, and she loves working with couples to make their wedding dreams come true. What she doesn’t love is having cameras following her all the time, especially when sheÂ’s crushing hard on the lawyer from another floor.Â Robert Bertram doesn’t like planning weddings. He doesn’t like being on TV either. But when he finds himself in possession of NellieÂ’s diary, he thinks he can turn her into anyoneÂ’s dream girl. If he doesn’t fall for her first. Published:Â 4/30/15 by Midnight Books Genre: New Adult Goodreads – AmazonÂ – Smashwords Things I liked I loved the premise of this book. There are so many reality shows on TV but this is the first book I’ve read that tries to capture that feeling. The story is really cute and I thought that the premise was very original.
