On the Same Page


On the Same Page is a new feature here on Books Take You Places that I am hosting along with two of my very dear friends, Amy (Tripping Over Books) and Brittany (The Book Addict’s Guide). Essentially, we will be reading one book a month together and then each of us will be doing a non-traditional review of the book – though sometimes we might even sway from that and write up a nice review to keep the words flowing! Some examples of a type of “non-traditional” review might be:

  • A playlist of sorts

  • Character analysis

  • A Pinterest board
  • Baked yummies that fit into the storyline

  • Spotlight on quotes that stood out in the novel

  • A review in gifs
