Follow Friday (12)


Do you have an under-noticed author that you think we should all know about?


Right now I'm reading Person Demons by Lisa Desrochers and I'm absolutely loving her writing. I had never heard of Desrochers until I was contacted by the publishing house. Since I hadn't heard of her I automatically though the book wouldn't be good. I was so wrong! It's so easy to put yourself into the character's shoes and their voices are incredible! Her writing is extremely funny, full of suspense and so easy to relate to. I still can't believe it's an adult's writing, it sounds like I'm talking to one of my friends!

"What is the thing you like most about reading book blogs? Is it the reviews, author guest posts, articles, giveaways, or something else entirely?"

I really enjoy the book reviews! I love reading other bloggers' opinions on the same books I have read or on books that I might want to buy. Their reviews are a definite go to before I buy any book.

  5. I'd have to say I love reviews the best of all, but I think meeting the bloggers is right up there, too! Everyone is SO nice! :)

    An overabundance of memes drive me nuts though...I think a fair balance is necessary! Happy Friday, Katie!

  7. I made it over half way through Personal Demons and then stopped bc I was annoyed at how back & forth the main character kept going with her decisions. I may need to go back & finish now. lol That was the only issue I had, the writing was fine.

  8. Hey Katie. New follower.

    I love this week's question from PJ because I love to discover new to me authors. Thanks for chiming in. I have Personal Demons sitting on my bookshelf, waiting to be read. *sighs* Someday.

    Cute blog header. I love it.

    Happy Weekend.

  9. I like reading the reviews, too, especially after I have finished the book. It's interesting to see what other people thought, and whether they liked (disliked) a book as much as I did.

    Have a great weekend!

  10. Hi Katie! Thanks! I'm so glad you're enjoying Personal Demons. The opinions that matter most to me are those of teens, so I'm happy to hear that you relate to my characters.

    And I also saw your Team Ren button, so I'm assuming you loved my crit partner, Andrea's Nightshade as much as I did =)

    I'm glad to hear you're enjoying Personal Demons. I've heard a lot of mixed reviews, but you're the first one who has commented on the author's writing voice. The cover looks so adult, so I wondered if the writing would be that way too. I'm so glad to hear it's written in a realistic YA voice. Thanks for the info!

  19. Hey Small Review!
    I completely agree with you on it looking like an adult cover! I was so happy that it had such a great teen voice!
