About the PJV


Parajunkee’s View, started in August of 2009, primarily focuses on books, fiction genre books to be specific. But, over time the blog has morphed into a community outlet for much more, including movies (usually based on books), television shows and other entertaining, artistic outlets. The blog also features tutorials for other bloggers on how to improve their own  blogs, and memes that target improving page views and networking. The blog was created by Rachel Rivera, who is also known as Parajunkee. She continues to maintain most of the blog, only letting go slightly of the reigns on the weekends, when her friend and fellow New Orleanian, Patti (@TheLoveJunkee), slips in a bit of contemporary romance.

Parajunkee.com has won several awards, including the BBAW Best Written Blog Award and Best Feature awards. Parajunkee.com was also a finalist in the Goodreads.com Independent Book Blog awards.




Rachel, whom you might know as Parajunkee, is the blog owner of parajunkee.com and the design blog parajunkee.net. Rachel has been blogging for over four years, designing / web programming for over twelve, but her real love, reading, has been her favorite hobby since childhood. Rachel has won numerous awards for her writing, the blogs she has created and her design work. You can find Parajunkee on Twitter.

The Geeky Junkee

Like all of my fellow reviewers, I’m an avid reader. I fell in love with Urban Fantasy and Paranormal books years ago. Basically, I’m a nerd who teaches and writes and reads and rambles.  And I really like to talk about things that freak my geek. What freaked your geek today?
