My name is Carmel and I’m the author of Rabid Reads. I started blogging after having gotten too many glazed looks from my guy while blabbing about a book. He’s not thrilled about my new hobby but we’ve worked out a schedule. Sports = Reading/Blogging time. Luckily for me, he’s a huge sports fan! Paranormal romance, urban fantasy and YA are the current genres that I’m addicted to. But, my ultimate obsession is wolves. If you’ve been by my blog; you probably already know that! Recently redesigned by our awesome hostess! When I’m not on “me-time” I work full-time at one of Canada’s national museums and study part-time in Web Design. I live out in the country with my guy and our two adorable pooches, one of which happens to look like a wolf btw…  During this time of the year I can often be found on the ski slopes carving it up on my snowboard. Thanks Parajunkee for featuring me!! 🙂   Carmel is studying...

Hi welcome to Follow Friday! Let me tell you what is going on today.  First PJV will be featuring one blogger from this great community each Friday along with having the Follow My Book Blog feature. Each week one blogger will be selected as a feature, so sign up for the Follow Feature. Future features are picked randomly. Amanda @ Another Book Junkie Hey! My name is Amanda, and I run the blog Another Book Junkie. I’m a stay at home mom to two beautiful toddlers, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I go total fan-girl over great books, Tech N9ne, and Supernatural. In my limited free time, I read, blog, write, tweet, etc etc! I hope to go back to school when the kiddos start school themselves. My blog is unofficially dedicated to young adult novels, though I do enjoy all genres. Paranormal young adult is probably my favorite. Like so many others, I was pulled into the young adult world by Twilight, and never looked back. I started my blog to share my love of books, and to promote the authors who write them. I hope to bring attention to authors I see as under-appreciated. After all, it’s hard to notice the Jennifer Laurens’ in the world, if all you see in front of you are the Stephenie Meyers’, right?! Thanks Parajunkee for featuring me!!...

Stargazer by Claudia Gray

Stargazer (Evernight Novels 2) Free from the Jefferson Parish LibraryAuthor web site PJV’s Quickie POV: An excellent follow-up to Evernight. Stargazer continues the story of the star-crossed-lovers Bianca and Lucas. A play on the Romeo and Juliet story, the second installment of the Evernight Novels delivers a more grown-up version of the first novel. The suspense of the last minute reveal from Evernight is lost, but other secrets are to be found out, so it still possess that dark flavor that was so prevalent in the first novel. I was very pleased with this novel, and am looking forward to reading Hourglass. Review: What would happen if Romeo and Juliet didn’t kill themselves, but instead just lied to their parents that they weren’t seeing each other anymore? What if Juliet was a vampire and Romeo was a vampire hunter? What if Paris was really hot, and really nice and Romeo was a bit grumpy and aggressive? Well, that would be Stargazer. Bianca is back for another year at Evernight Academy, this time sans her love Lucas.  In fact everyone is under the impression that Lucas and Bianca are old news and Bianca has kicked Lucas to the curb, what any self-respecting vamp would do when they found out their boyfriend was a secret spy for the deadly Black Cross. Yet, Lucas and Bianca are above labels, Lucas doesn’t care...
