New Look, New Name, New Reviews Coming

I'm so excited about my new blog name and design. The amazingly talented (and patient!) Lori at Use Your Imagination Designs created my awesome new look. It is above and beyond anything I expected, is totally me, and she was a dream to work with. I got The Works package which includes everything and then some, plus business cards. The best part of working with Lori is that she really cares that you are 100% satisfied with your design and she is willing to continue getting your thoughts as she goes along and make changes until you are completely happy. She was also very willing to be flexible in her package to customize it for my needs and wants, and communicated on everything along the way.

Check out her work, and have a look around my site to see all the unique touches she created for me. I LOVE it!!! :)

OK. I'm done gushing.

Welcome to the new and improved Heise Reads & Recommends (formerly Teach 8 YA Book Blog). Come back often to check things out and look for these book reviews in the coming weeks: Shipbreaker, Where She Went, The Season, Memento Nora, Unwind, Caleb + Kate, A Match Made in High School, Babe in Boyland, and, of course, Wolfsbane!


  1. I ADORE your new blog layout! Seriously thinking I need to have Lori design one for me!

  2. I LOVE the new design and details!! I might have to contact her about updating my blog too :)

  3. It was so great to work with you, Jillian! I so happy you love your design!!
