Goodbye, Blogger: My Transition to WordPress

Hello everyone!

So I have an announcement: I'm transitioning my book blog to WordPress. There is a number of reasons why I have chosen to change to a different platform. I have a fairly detailed list as my first blog post on my new blog, but it basically boils down to that I wanted a different look and a fresh start to my blogging endeavors. I also feel that WordPress is more engaging for readers and more user-friendly on the readers' side as well.

Thank you for supporting this blog and keeping up to date with my book reviews. Please support my new WordPress blog to continue to follow me. I am also branching out my new blog and making more book-related posts that are not strictly book reviews. It will be much more exciting and engaging for all readers.

I will not be deleting this blog and I will not be transitioning these blog posts to my new blog. These reviews will always stay on this blog and will always be available for anyone who wants to come back to them.

And so I bid adieu to this baby book blog of mine. It has served me well.

Find my new blog here:

Goodreads Summary: On the evening of Sofia Claremont's seventeenth birthday, she is sucked into a nightmare from which she cannot wake.

A quiet evening walk along a beach brings her face to face with a dangerous pale creature that craves much more than her blood.

She is kidnapped to an island where the sun is eternally forbidden to shine.
An island uncharted by any map and ruled by the most powerful vampire coven on the planet. She wakes here as a slave, a captive in chains.

Sofia's life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn when she is the one selected out of hundreds of girls to join the harem of Derek Novak, the dark royal Prince.

Despite his addiction to power and obsessive thirst for her blood, Sofia soon realizes that the safest place on the island is within his quarters, and she must do all within her power to win him over if she is to survive even one more night.

Will she succeed? ...or is she destined to the same fate that all other girls have met at the hands of the Novaks?
