  Once upon a time in a land called Ottawa, there was a young girl named Rachel, who got chosen to be the Teen Blogger for a fantastic library organization called the Ottawa Public Library. She blogged about the books she read while locked away in her tower....

    In all seriousness, I am sad to say that this will be my last blog post as the OPL Teen Blogger. I am very happy to have gotten a chance to share my love of books with you; this has definitely been an amazing experience.  One of the highlights for me was being able to attend the Teen Tech Week Video Screening and Award Ceremony night. It was so much fun.

  I would like to give a massive thank you to the OPL as a whole, who chose me to be the Teen Blogger, and supplied me with so many good reads. Thank you to all the people who read my blogs. I hope I gave you some new books and authors to read.

    Since I am a true book lover at heart, I will leave you with two books that I think you must read: Arcadia Awakens by Kai Meyer and Cinder by Marissa Meyer because they are very exciting and full of suspense. 
Arcadia Awakens      Cinder

 Until we meet again,
Happy Reading!
