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! =)

I definitely did not get a lot of reading done this week. My days have all been busy with work and then appointments for my internship after that. Then I've come home, had a quick dinner, and continued doing work until about midnight. And I'm still not caught up! So you can imagine I didn't read much. =( Hopefully I'll still have a couple reviews up this week though. I have one ready to go, and I'm currently reading a somewhat short book that I may have finished tonight.
My husband has decided he'd like to help me out a little so he picked up one of my review books last week and read it and wrote the review for me! It made me laugh because I can just hear him talking in his review. You will definitely be able to tell the difference from mine because the voice is way different! Anyway, that review will be up the last week of this month near that book's release date.
I currently have a giveaway still going for Still Missing by Chevy Stevens. It's going only through this Friday, so if you're interested make sure you enter. The giveaway for The Blind Contessa's New Machine is also open still but only through Wednesday. I'm still working out how to do giveaways the best. I like just using a simple form and not requiring anything else except to check back, but I feel like a couple times I've had people enter multiple times under different names since I state that I'm going to post the winner here rather than e-mail and then if I pick one of the 5 names they entered they can send me the one e-mail they use. I don't necessarily want to require that people be followers or subscribers, but at the same time I think that giveaways should be for people who actually read the blog or who are new to it and plan to. I know this is sort of a hot topic and people definitely have different thoughts about it. Curious what you all think about it.
