Readers' Favorite


Girl Who Reads was established in 2011 to provide readers an online source for book reviews and author news. Our main purpose is to help readers discover their next great read and a new favorite author. A reader will find reviews for children, teens, and adults from a wide range of genres, including the occasional non-fiction book.

  1. I can't say "cheese" because I'm lactose-intolerant. However I can say "read" and that makes a person smile!
    Happy I found your wonderful blog.

  2. wow! Donna, impressed that you wrote your Ph.D dissertaion. That's a big one to have accomplished. PS. I have a degree in Biochemistry too... and I still use flowcharts as a means of plotting out the rules of my fantasy world :)

  3. Interesting, Donna. I also got as far as ABD but ran out of gas (figuratively). I agree --the learning was much more fun than the stress of doctoral level angst. Happens a lot. Glad I found your blog.
