Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Everyone agreed that this book was particularly entertaining.  We all enjoyed the two faced love interest and the spin that it put on the story (even if it was somewhat unsurprising).  The idea of the story was original and fun and it made the book much easier to read and enjoy.  It was very hard to avoid spoilers for those who hadn’t finished it… so as hard as we tried, eventually stopped trying lol.

The holiday book swap is always a fun time of the year.  This year the following books were gifted:

The Log In Box, with New Social Options

I found a way to implement social logins with our website bakobooknerds.com.  This is handy if you don’t want to remember your password each time.

Facebook / Google

For facebook and for google +, there is only one step.  Just be sure you are already logged in to facebook or google in another browser tab, then click the “log in with social” icon below the login box on the left side of the home page.  (If you weren’t yet logged in to facebook or google, then you will be prompted to login via  a popup box).  Click “approve” or “allow” to link BakoBookNerds.com with your account, then – voila!

Instagram / Twitter

For instagram and twitter, the first time log in has one extra step than with the facebook or google accounts.  First, be sure you are already logged in to instagram or twitter in another browser tab, then click the “log in with social” icon below the login box on the left side of the home page. (If you weren’t yet logged in to instagram or twitter, then you will be prompted to login via a popup box). Click “approve” or “allow” to link BakoBookNerds.com with your account.  Next you will see a popup box asking for a valid email address.   Enter the email address which is already associated with your BakoBookNerds account to link them.  Then, voila!  You are all set!
