Good, Bad, and Ugly Books

Hi! I'm Rebecca, a teenager who loves reading and reviewing books! I have had this blog for over two years, and it's been an amazing journey. GBU Books has grown from a Tumblr blog to a Facebook page to an actual website with over 1,850 followers. I'm always expanding GBU Books, so please look at the links above for other versions of my website. Besides reviewing, I have a couple of weekly segments, which you can read about in the tabs above. So check out the website, ask questions, and don't forget to click the follow button! Note: Any pictures I post are not mine unless I say otherwise. Thanks to Nicole for the background and header!

"oh my god stop criticizing young girls who like 50 Shades of Gray or Twilight you can’t tell them what they can and can’t read"

no we can’t but we have to protect young girls from mistaking abusive behavior for genuine affection at all costs

Finally finished The Giver series.  Son was good and it’s nice to hear about all of the characters, but I still kind of wish The Giver was a single book. I think the ending to that was fine and conclusive, plus what can beat The Giver

That mixed feeling when you’re reading a hardcover that you love and using the front jacket flap as a bookmark, but you pass the halfway point and sadly switch to the back flap instead.

"Not only have we had families purchase off the wall but teachers and schools that have brought kids in to choose books as a reward for their hard work over the school year." 

Thanks so much for supporting #WeNeedDiverseBooks, Mel!
