Welcome to Take Me Away!!
Hello! Thanks for stopping by Take Me Away, where I review books of a variety of genres. My favorite genres are literary and contemporary fiction, though I also enjoy some mystery/thrillers. I also enjoy sociological and psychological non-fiction. Check out the tabs across the top to navigate the site. All the reviews on this site are categorized by title (fiction or non-fiction) or by author. Check out the "About Jenny" section to learn a little more about me. Thanks again for stopping by, and feel free to leave a comment even if it's just to say hi! =)

With the fun filled week I had recently in NYC, I feel today's Sunday Salon is so boring, lol.
I had extremely ambitious plans to read a lot prior to BEA so when I met certain authors I could already have read their books. That didn't happen. Nor did I read at all my week there! So I feel like I've read a lot less lately than usual. I'm also back to my ridiculously packed schedule and have been having trouble focusing on reading too much. I've found that I get much more easily frustrated with books if I don't love them because I just don't have that time to waste!!
I did get to finish one of the books I brought back from BEA, Room by Emma Donoghue. It was so different than anything else I've read in a long time. I think it will be really popular. But that's all I'm going to say about that for now... you'll have to read the entire review sometime closer to the release date in September. ;) I also finished Caught by Harlan Coben last night. Today I'm working on a book for blog tour I have coming up.
I have one more BEA related post spotlighting hot book club books that will be up later this week. Speaking of which my 50 pound box of books from BEA has not yet arrived!! Where is it??? Hope it finds its way here soon!
