Now, in 2012, this blog is still run by me, but I have some help to write the reviews you are reading. The blog has gone through many upgrades (and what you see now will probably change), but it still has, and will always have, the same chatty essence. So, enjoy!
I am a fairly ordinary teen, who likes books, music, podcasts such as MuggleCast, The Potter Pensieve, Hypable's Glee Chat and The Hunger Games Chat. TV shows I love include Castle, The Big Bang Theory and Glee. I dislike spiders (although we have grown to accept one another), creepy crawlies and brussel sprouts.
My writing style is sometimes analytical (when I have the time and enjoyed the book enough) and sometimes short and snappy. If the book is flooded with storylines and concepts then I tend to analyse characters and the events in the book (such as my recent reviews of The Clockwork Angel and The Gone Series). At the moment I have a lot of reviews which I have written but not had time to publish yet, so if you want to check out when I read a book which I have reviewed on the blog, find me on goodreads at http://www.goodreads.com/xxgeorgiexx.
I'm Abi, a slightly insane teenage girl. My favourite series are: Harry Potter, The Hunger Games and A Song of Fire and Ice and I love reading and writing HP fanfiction. As well as writing fanfic, I also write original fiction and me and my friends are turning my latest on into a film to put onto youtube. I really dislike it when a brilliant series is ruined by either a film or a TV series (for example The Secret Circle, in my humble opinion, has been completely ruined for those who read the books).
My reviews are going to be slightly different in the sense that I will do a review for 3 or 4 chapters at a time, as opposed to the whole book. My reasoning for this is that I'm review the "A Song of Fire and Ice" series by George R. R. Martin and each book is over 800 pages long and has several different storylines.
Other names: Izzy, DarkDream, “Who let you in here?”
Age: It’s over 9000
Favourite books: Lord of the Rings, The Screwtape Letters, Dragonlance Chronicles
The semi-serious bit: My name is Isabelle and I am a diligent student who is conscientious and happy to take on responsibilities, or at least that is what I tricked the teachers into writing on my report card. My hobbies include writing and gaming, and it is because of the former interest that I was unfortunately enslaved by the creator of "Diary of a teenager." On several occasions I have made Georgie aware that the generic, cliché title of this blog makes me want to microwave my face but sadly my pleas go unheard. (Clearly I am a victim here, so post nice comments on my posts out of pity. Thanks.) I have a tendency to be cynical and pessimistic not unlike an old woman, but hopefully this will not come across in my reviews. I love you all (as long as you leave me nice comments.)
Bio: I'm a slightly manic flautist (I play the flute), who loves the Cat Royal series by Julia Golding (Editor's note - Yes, she really does!), alongside my new craze of the Hunger Games. I like to write my own stories and hate (with a capital H) clique love stories. I also like medieval and otherwise historical novels, preferably without love triangles. My TV guilty habits are Merlin, NCIS and Russell Howard's Good News - the guilty bit being Merlin (Editor's note - it's soooo historically inaccurate!). My favourite foods are things like ice cream and home-made pizza, and I absolutely hate cucumber!
My reviews will be quite short, as if I try and write an analytical review it will go on and on forever! I should be reviewing YA books (if I can get my hands on any copies!) so if you have any recommendations, leave them in the comments. I'm new to the book blogging scene, so please be kind!
