Hi everyone! My name is Jennifer Gaska and I'm the book blogger and reviewer behind the blog, Pop! Goes The Reader.



Patreon is a subscription service that allows friends and fans of a creator to show their support by pledging money, which is automatically charged at the beginning of each month, in exchange for exclusive rewards and perks made available only to patrons!


Pop! Goes The Reader is free and available to all, and that will never change. My primary goal has always been to create a positive, safe and inclusive space where we can all celebrate the triumphs and importance of middle grade and young adult literature together, and I sincerely hope I've been successful doing so.

That said, one of the greatest barriers to creativity is financial instability and uncertainty. Having a steady source of income that I could rely on every month on Patreon would allow me the freedom and opportunity to prioritize projects based on what I'm most excited and passionate about, and not simply based on financial considerations. Pop! Goes The Reader is a one-woman show that takes a great deal of time, work, and money to maintain. Money earned via Patreon would help to offset some of the expenses of maintaining Pop! Goes The Reader, including domain renewal, hosting, and the cost of materials used each week for The Writing's On The Wall wallpaper series.


Creating and offering rewards and exclusive content that my patrons are excited about is my top priority! Your contributions mean more than I can possibly say, and I want to make sure patrons feel their hard-earned money is being well-spent. Patrons of the various tiers will be given the following each month:
● A chance to win the opportunity to share a post of your choice on Pop! Goes The Reader
● A monthly Hot Off The Press post with over 100+ new middle grade, young adult and adult releases
● Exclusive book reviews and recommendation guides
● Membership in the Baby-Sitters Club Book Club
● One new wallpaper each month that will not be shared anywhere else

In the future I would love to offer even more rewards for patrons including:
● Exclusive merchandise for the Baby-Sitters Club Book Club members (i.e. Wallpaper, stickers and/or an enamel pin)
● Interviews with industry professionals such as agents, editors, authors, artists, bloggers and more that can provide valuable insight into the various facets of the publishing industry
● Individual, custom-made wallpapers for patrons who wish to have one made just for them
● A second book club featuring horror books from my own childhood, like R.L. Stine's Fear Street series

Perhaps most importantly, let me know what you would like most! Is there a reward you would like to receive as a patron that isn't yet available? If it's something I'm able to offer, I would be happy to include it in a current reward tier, or create a new one. I am always open to suggestions and feedback!

Want to catch up with me on a different platform? You can always reach out on Twitter and Instagram - I'd love to hear from you!

$1 or more per month

Are you a regular follower of Pop! Goes The Reader and want to show your support? $1 a month ($12 a year) is a simple and effective way to give back and help make sure I can manage necessary costs like web hosting, domain renewal, etc. Every little bit helps! 


As an extra bonus, $1 patrons will be entered into a contest each month in which one patron will win a guaranteed guest post on Pop! Goes The Reader. The winner can use this guest post to promote something, recommend a book, etc. (Pending approval of the chosen post topic and/or content)

I'm sincerely grateful for your generosity and your willingness to help support Pop! Goes The Reader. Even $5.00 a month can make a BIG difference! Here's what you'll receive in exchange for your kind pledge:


Hot Off The Press: On the 1st of each month, I'll share a post with 100+ middle grade, young adult, and adult books being published in the month in question to help you stay up-to-date and informed about what you might want to read next!  


Membership In The Baby-Sitters Club Book Club! Because I was devoted to the Sweet Valley High and Fear Street series growing up, I always felt like I missed out on this seminal moment of adolescence by not reading The Baby-Sitters Club, too. I couldn't be more excited to discover this series as an adult!


Each month I'll be reading one book from the original Baby-Sitters Club series, in order from the very beginning, and I want YOU to join me! At the start of each month I'll announce which book we'll be reading. At the end of the month I'll then share a post with my thoughts on each novel  and, on the last day of the month, you'll be invited to an exclusive Google Hangout where we can all chat about Kristy, Mary Anne, Claudia, Stacey and anything and everything else our hearts desire!


Recommendation List Or Exclusive Reviews: Each month I'll share either 1) A post with 5-10 books I've read and would recommend on a particular theme (i.e. road trip stories, stories you shouldn't read on an empty stomach, etc.) along with my thoughts on each of the books I've included or 2) 1-2 Exclusive book reviews with my thoughts on what I've read that month.


Pop! Goes The Reader Round-Up: Want to stay up-to-date on all Pop! Goes The Reader has to offer? At the end of each month, I'll share a post with a complete list of everything I've published on the blog, to make sure you never miss a minute!

$10 or more per month

In addition to all of the rewards included with the $1 and $5 pledges,  you'll receive a new, exclusive wallpaper for your desktop and phone each month that I will create only for my patrons!
