Archimedes Forgest


Sarah Rettger is a grad student and part-time bookseller at the Harvard University Bookstore. This blogger is particularly fond of historical fiction for young adults, and especially the classic stories of the Bronte sisters, Jane Austen and the like. Her reviews are a bit like book reports--more summaries with observations added rather than critical assessment. Her writing is strong and her point of view interesting. A great blog for high school English students and college lit majors.



The Bookavore is a Brooklyn bookseller who virtually 'devours' books and then blogs about the meal. This reviewer does not post negative reviews, which means all of the books mentioned here are also her recommendations for a good read. Reviews include a wide variety of genres, but focus mainly on teen fiction, adult non-fiction, comics/graphic novels, and some select adult fiction.

The Book Blurb


Crawl under the covers with me! Read my advance reviews of books soon to hit the bookstores. I love variety in my reading choices, so you never know what you might find here! I figure you can go to Amazon or any other site to read a synopsis of a book. I don't do book reports here! This site is focused on MY opinion of each novel.

Reflections of a Bookaholic


This blog reflects my ongoing journey with books. Many blogs review new books and keep track of up and coming book related issues. My blog hopes to be a home for anyone who reads books, needs to know about particular books, or any person who is bored and needs something to catch their eye for a short while. The content will mostly focus on good reads new and old. I will review books I read. I hope to provide lists, resources, and other fun stuff I find helpful as a reader. Maybe I can uncover an underrated/forgotten book for you! In addition, this blog seeks to be a conversation between readers about thoughts and reflections concerning the life, times, and hardships (wink, wink) of a reader.
