Pretty Fierce Blog Tour | Author Q&A with Kieran Scott

I’m so thrilled to announce that today I’m hosting an interview with Kieran Scott, author of the recently released Pretty Fierce, a YA story filled with action, assassins, and fantastic family and friend relationships.

Author Q&A One of the highlights of Pretty Fierce for me was the inclusion of a protagonist with a diverse background. What inspired you to give Kaia a […]

Getting to Know My Goodreads Review Style | Discussion

I’ve been blogging since 2014 and using Goodreads even longer (since 2011!) but I’ve found that this year I am really trying to approach Goodreads with a clean slate. I’m in the middle of massively reorganizing my shelves, culling my “To-Be-Read” list, and updating missing reviews. However, one thing I’ve noticed is that there is a significant difference between how bloggers review on Goodreads. Some post their entire review verbatim as it is on their blog, some post a condensed version, some post their initial thoughts and reactions, and some do a combination of all three! In an effort to […]

I’m Moving! Important Info!

Posted April 20, 2015 in Uncategorized / 15 Comments

Hello lovely followers! I’m coming to you today with a bit of a major announcement regarding the future of my blog, Girl in the Pages (girlinthepages.com). I’m going to be moving from wordpress.com to a self-hosted wordpress.org site. My URL (girlinthepages.com) will stay the same! Why? I’ve loved my time at wordpress.com for the past 15 months book blogging and it’s helped me really grow my audience and content. It was a fantastic place to start my blog. At this time I feel like I’m ready to move to wordpress.org where I have more control over customizing my blog, using […]


Pardon the Dust!

Pardon the Dust!

As you may have noticed, some changes have been taking place! Since the one year anniversary of my blog I have been wanting to spruce up my images and branding, and I was recently inspired by Alicia over at A Kernel of Nonsense to use the spring season as an excuse to do some “spring cleaning” around my blog. My header has changed and I have a new button image to match (find it in my sidebar!) and I’ll be slowly changing some of my older graphics to match the new theme. Thanks so much for the understanding of the […]

Stacking the Shelves [8]

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by  Tynga’s Reviews where bloggers share the books that they’ve added to their shelves this week, whether borrowed, bought, virtual, physical, etc!

I adored the first book and I’m so excited to read this, although I’m saving it for a day when I know I’ll have NO distractions to keep me from reading it! I finally caved and bought the first book in […]
