Ivy Devlin Guest Post

Please welcome author Ivy Devlin, author of Low Red Moon, to GreenBeanTeenQueen! As part of the Low Red Moon blog tour, Ms. Devlin is traveling to various blogs and making fun guest posts. Since I'm a librarian and love hearing about libraries and authors, I asked her to talk about my favorite topic, the library.

Libraries and Me

Libraries have played a huge role in my life. I grew up in an area where there weren't many bookstores, and the local library was, until I went to college, basically my only source of books! More than that, the librarians there saw that I liked to read and encouraged me--they let me check out more than ten books at a time, they told me when something new came in that they thought I'd like and they never, ever questioned anything I checked out. They trusted me and what I wanted to read, and I loved that.

So libraries--not just a huge role in my life, but a huge piece of my heart as well.

I love it! I'm so glad when authors love the library as much as I do!:) Thanks Ivy!!

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Rating: 5/5 Stars Genre: Realistic Fiction Release Date: 2/26/2013 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Eleanor and Park are both misfits. When new girl Eleanor sits next to Park on the bus, they don't want anything to do with each other. But over the course of the school year, things change. It starts with comic books and becomes a friendship and a romance that the two will never forget. You never forget your first love. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Have you ever had a book sit on your shelf that you've heard so much hype about? And you think that books sounds like it would be right up your alley, but you're in a reading slump and you're afraid to give it a try unless it fails? I knew Eleanor and Park sounded like my perfect book, but I was in such an after committee slump that I even though I knew this book would help, I just didn't want to be disappointed. I should have known better because Eleanor and Park was perfect and everything that I had hoped it wou

13 District Mockingjay Tour: District 4

Hello and welcome to District Four. I'm sorry that Finnick isn't here to be your host. I know as a member of District Four I should be cheering for my own tribute, but after watching the last two Hunger Games play out I have fallen in love with Peeta Mellark! Why do I love Peeta? He's smart, he's funny, and he's charming. He stands up for what he believes, he's loyal and he's not afraid to do what's right. He's sensitive and caring but can also be strong and kick butt. He fights for Katniss and with Katniss. Peeta is a great diplomat and he knows how to bring people together. He can also be sneaky to get what he wants. Plus, did I mention he can bake? And he's hot!! But it's not just me! We have an underground club of sorts here in District Four-Seafaring Librarians for Peeta! Here's what some of our members had to say about their love for Peeta: - Team Peeta!! I love their relationship because they balance each other perfectly. Where
