Ok, so maybe its not so much a place to go as much as something to do when you get there. The site is wattpad, and it is also available as an app on your smartphone. It is my lastest reading addiction, and it is fantastic! Wattpad provides you with a platform for acquiring free ebook reading material. The books on here are from all genres, and there is definitely something for everyone. Here's the catch: the authors are a diverse group of undiscovered talent. So basically, you can read some undiscovered talent that, frankly, is often better than some published works. I must admit, however, that for every good story there are probably three bad ones. Anyone can post here but if the title goes something like "omg my new stepbrother is madd hott and I think he wants me" you probably can tell its going to suck. So here are some recommendations: the author named Danae Ayusso puts Stephenie Meyer to shame. She writes amazing works across multiple genre. Some of her work is still available on wattpad. Others are partially posted with the completed work available for purchase on

Another of my fave works is Amber Eyes by Jolyn Palliata. She is also amazing. Read some wattpad works, save some trees and support budding authors; two good deeds at once (of course while you are soaking up some rays under your spf 100...oh wait...not everybody's as pale as me:)
