Nature’s Unbalance, By Andrea Buginsky


I’m thrilled to have author Andrea Buginsky join us today for a guest post. Andrea is a freelance writer and the author of The Chosen, a young adult series that one reviewer called, “An all out questing high fantasy.” She has enjoyed writing since childhood; no surprise then that in college she decided to turn it into a career, earning her BA in Journalism. Join us now as Andrea discusses the fine art of choosing a good book!

Choosing a Good Book: Guest Post By Andrea Buginsky

There are so many good books on the market that I’m interested in reading, but I can only read so much at once. Lately, I’ve noticed my Kindle getting fuller and fuller as I add more books to it, not to mention my Amazon wish list. How do you keep track of all of those books, and find the time to read them all?

One way I’ve found is by using Goodreads. Goodreads allows me to look up new books by my favorite authors, add them to my TBR list, and move them to my currently reading list when I’m ready to start a new book. When I’m done, I can mark off that I’ve read it, write my review, and post it to several different places at once. Then, I’m on to the next book.

Finding the time to read may be a bit more difficult than what to read. If you have a really busy schedule, especially during school, then you may not have as much free time to read the books you enjoy. My advice is to keep at least one fun reading book going, even if you only get a chance to read one or two pages a day. When you find you have a few minutes of quiet time to yourself, grab your book, and read. It may take longer to finish the book this way, but you’ll get through it, and the few minutes of reading for fun could help you eliminate some of the stress in your day.

So what’s on your reading list? I’d love to know! Leave your current TBR in the comments below. I’ll pick my favorite and send the reader a FREE PDF copy of “The Chosen.” Make sure you leave your email address. Good luck!

Andrea Buginsky is a freelance writer and author. “The Chosen” was her first book, and was followed by “My Open Heart,” an autobiography about growing up with heart disease. “Nature’s Unbalance” is the second story in THE CHOSEN series. Andrea plans to write more in the series. She’s already done with the first draft of book 3 and has a concept for book 4. You can find Andrea on her website, Andi’s Realm. Her books are available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

    Thanks for the great post, Andrea! Great suggestions, especially for those of us using ebook readers! And I really do need to start using Goodreads more.

    Here’s my TBR:

    I’ll Close My Eyes (But I Won’t Be Asleep)

    And of course, The Chosen!

    You’ve got my email!

    Sounds good, A.R. I’m not familiar with “I’ll Close my Eyes.” I’ll have to check it out.

    I’ll do the drawing tomorrow evening (Monday), so there’s still time to enter the contest! Have good week everyone.
