Why a Blog?


I’m Priyanka, a twelfth grader. I have an insatiable appetite for reading but have difficulty determining what to read since I read a lot. I pick up a book every spare moment I have.  I prefer paperbacks and hardcovers because you can take them almost everywhere without needing an electronic device or worrying about battery power.

Many times I’ve picked up a book only to hear the librarian say, “Are you sure that’s appropriate for you?” God knows how many people out there are just like me, not knowing what to read and not wanting to pick up the wrong book. It’s really hard to find a great book in the bookstore so when I do find one, I hold on to it and read it over and over again.

I decided to start this blog so that I could share my book reviews and my passion of reading with others.

  1. I am a GT advocate working with advanced 5th grader readers. I have 7 students with your exact issue with their school libraries. I can’t wait to share your blog with them, so that they can get some book ideas and see what book reviewing looks like. You write great reviews. Nice models for my students. Thanks for this great blog!

    1. Thank you for your words of encouragement! I was really excited to read your comment! I would love to hear feedback from your students as well!
