Thank you for visiting my new blog. I am happy and nervous to begin this exciting bookish adventure with you! I am thegreeneyedreader, aka Jess7 on Litsy. I am an avid reader and bookstagramer. I have two adorable photogenic schnauzers that I love to feature on Litsy, instagram, and twitter. Links to those profiles and my goodreads account can be found on my home page (assuming I have set this up correctly, **fingers crossed**).

I primarily intend to use this blog to post my honest feedback and reviews of books. I prefer to read books on my kindle (including digital library books, ARCs through Netgalley, and Amazon ebooks).  However, I do have an ever-expanding personal library of hardcover and paperback books, as well.

My passion for reading began as a child when I read the Anne of Green Gables series, and Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mocking Bird. As an adult my favorite and most recommended book is probably Fredrik Backman’s A Man Called Ove. However, I love to read many different genres, including but not limited to, psychological thriller, mystery/thriller, literary fiction, general adult fiction, historical fiction, memoir, humor, women’s fiction (feminist literature), YA, and political/social policy. Some of my favorite authors include:

  • Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
  • Fredrik Backman
  • John Boyne
  • Chris Cleave
  • Gillian Flynn
  • Amy Gentry
  • Lauren Graham
  • Abigail Haas
  • Paula Hawkins
  • Gail Honeyman
  • Khaled Hosseini
  • Mary Kubica
  • William Landay
  • Lisa Lutz
  • Clare Mackintosh
  • Gilly Macmillan
  • Kimberly McCreight
  • Megan Miranda
  • Liane Moriarty
  • Kate Morton
  • Celeste Ng
  • Ijeoma Oluo
  • B.A. Paris

  • Rainbow Rowell
