Ella Hannaford has a small business to run, an overworked father to look after and a future stepmother who wants a perfect wedding.

Gingerbread cottages, dodgy European gangsters, gun-toting grannies, wisecracking wolves, stubborn fairy godmothers, ogres, beanstalks and flying carpets abound in a tale about what happens when you refuse to accept your Happy Ending.

Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Disenchanted. I have a funny guest post to share with you today.

What to Do with Goodreads

Kristen Twardowski

New-York-City-Library-Hotel-booksGoodreads is the largest book review website on the internet. As of April 2017, it had 55 million members who wrote 50 million reviews and added 1.5 billion books. According to Quantcast, a website ranking and data collection site, around 400,000 unique visitors access the Goodreads each day from all around the world.

A Question for my Book Blogger Buddies

I use my blog for book reviews exclusively. I am rather new to blogging. I am currently using the “Affinity” theme, which is a one-page theme designed with weddings and family announcements in mind. I picked it because it was so easy to set-up. I am getting a little bit more accustomed to blogging. Books are my passion and I think I am ready to move on to a theme compatible with my passion.

Question: Does anyone know of a free theme that is designed with book reviews in mind?

Thanks to all my new friends.
