There’s one book of the day left in the queue, and unfortunately after that I’ve run out of them, at least until college is done and I can get back to reading as much as I used to.
If you want to submit a recommendation, please do, you can find guidelines for submissions under tagged/submission_guidelines. I will post them as “book recs” instead of “books of the day.”
Until I’ve had a chance to read some more books/find some old favourites this blog will focus more on reblogs/ interesting books I’ve found etc… and I’m going to start doing an author recommendation every Sunday in place of Book of the Days. I swear to have Book of the Day back by May/early June at the latest.

Book of the Day: V for Vendetta by Alan Moore and David Lloyd, with Steve Whitaker and Siobhan Dodds
Graphic Novel, YA/Adult
Book of the Day: The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides
Mystery, YA/Adult, Novel
This tells me one of two things: one, you have not had the chance to read Realm of the Gods and I really hope you enjoy…
I have read it, just library copy instead of my own! I was looking for one with the same cover art, so i put off buying it for a long time :)
Book of the Day: The Sorcerer’s Companion: A Guide to the Magical World of Harry Potter by Allan Zola Kronzek and Elizabeth Kronzek
Fantasy, YA, Reference
The unofficial guide to magic and magical creatures in Harry Potter.
Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen
For more stories of troubled teenagers and big questions, try these…
The Moth Diaries by Rachel Klein for a disconcerting story where it’s never clear what is real and what is in our protagonist’s mind
The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides for a claustrophobic tale of urban discontent
Where The Moon Isn’t by Nathan Filer for a moving, prize-winning story of schizophrenia and mental institutions (AKA The Shock Of The Fall)
Loud in the House of Myself by Stacy Pershall for a memoir of a girl suffering with borderline personality disorder
So this blog has mostly been books from my library so far, but I’m running low and I definitely can’t read fast enough (esp. with the end of college craziness happening) to keep up with book of the days…
That being said, you’re always welcome to submit books! I only ask that the pictures are ones you take, as opposed to cover art from a google search, and if you want to submit a series please make sure all books are included (i know I’ve slipped up a couple times…).
If you submit please include the title, author, age range, genre, and type (ie: novel, comic, anthology etc…). You can also include a brief description or comment if you want. I would like to keep this blog geared towards teens/adults, so I’d prefer if the minimum age range was 9-12.
I would reeeeeally appreciate submissions right now as I have about six books left in the queue and very little reading time.
