Welcome to Reader Rising! I hope you enjoy your stay.

This blog is chalk-full of reviews, giveaways, interviews, memes, and bookish discussion posts. For the most part, this blog is all for the ever fabulous young adult genre. However, you might see some middle grade or other genres mixed into the posts.

Visit as much as you'd like! 

The figurative doors are always open...

Also, only book lovers are allowed. Everyone else, OUT! (Just kidding. Everyone who reads this page is welcome. Yes, you included.)

  4. Hi! I am following your blog, would you mind following me back at the links below?

    I am also contacting you to see if you'd like to review my first novel when it's released in spring/summer 2013! It will be published through the Whitson Group and is a YA paranormal/fiction with a dash of romance. Please let me know if you are interested based on the description below. Thank you!

    Mother Earth, wounded by the human race and its disregard for her resources, will recruit human souls to serve Her and turn against humanity. A rising force festers; Gemini, a clan of paranormal beings will systematically possess and destroy towns, cities, and states. Amidst the chaos, a forbidden relationship between Onyx, a lead Gemini, and Violette, a human, begins. They will both find themselves in the middle of a revolutionary war that will either save, or destroy our world.

    1. If that book ever gets published, I would definitely read it. It sounds intriguing, possibly funny and witty, and most of all deadly. Sounds great!
