Follow Friday and Book Blog Hop!

Hello everyone and welcome to my brand new book blog! Reading YA, urban fantasy, and paranormal romance is a passion of mine and on this blog I will post my reviews and hopefully discuss books with all of you! Happy hopping!

"What are you reading now and why are you reading it?"

I'm currently reading Textual Healing by Eric Smith. I received this book from the author for review and so far I'm really enjoying it! I don't read a lot of adult contemporary fiction, but thus far this book has proved to be very entertaining and hilarious!

Summary taken from Goodreads:
 Few people have to deal with a haiku-speaking flower-shop-owning ninja every day on their way to work. Unfortunately for Andrew Connor, he is one of those people. Poor Andrew, his week has been a rough one. His former bestseller, Chasing Fireflies, is on clearance at Barnes & Noble for $1.37, his girlfriend left him for a corporate America action figure, and he's been tricked into joining Textual Healing, a support group for writers who can't seem to write anymore. Dealing with his employees at his failing used bookshop, a strange new love interest from the Midwest, and a pet sugar-glider that has somehow managed to destroy his entire apartment... when will he ever find the time to put pen to paper again?


  1. I hadn't heard of that book before. I like the cover and the blurb, and I especially like that you've said it's funny. Thanks for putting it on my radar. :)

  2. I started it but think I wasn't in the right mood at the time, so am going to give it another try in a couple days - definitely after hearing how entertaining you're finding it! :)

    I hope you're having a great week!

  3. Like the look of this...
    I'm following you now ;-)
    Have a nice weekend!

  6. I haven't heard of this one!!! I'll have to look into it. I was just reading your review of PERSONAL DEMONS and I'm so glad I'm not the only one out there who really was disappointed with it! Everyone was (and is!) raving about it but I just didn't like it. Happy Friday! I'm a new follower!

    Here's my hop and weekly round-up!

  7. I'm glad you included the synopsis as I'd never have guessed what this one was about. It does sound funny. Looking forward to reading your review.

  8. hmmm, this sounds different. I haven't really seen it before but I'm glad you're liking it. Hope you enjoy the rest of your day and HAPPY READING!

  9. Hopping through. This sounds like an interesting book. I love all the books on the cover.

  11. I like this. I want to feel sorry for the guy and his clearance book, but then I'm like you got to B&N.

  12. Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog!
    Textual Healing looks pretty good, I look forward to reading your review =]
    Have a great weekend!

  13. Good answer! The answer on my book blog is a little embarassing; it’s a book that’s been sitting on my TBR pile for a year.

    To my shame, I only opened the book because I remember it contained an Amazon gift card.

    Hop on over!

    I agree, I wouldn't have know what this book was about if I hadn't read the blurb, but it sounds like it would be funny! I like books that can make me laugh, and I got this image of a sugar glider destroying an apartment and I laughed lol Onto my PTR!

  16. Just stopping by via the hop! Thought I would say hello :)

    And the plot thickens...
