A Bit About Me

I figure before I start trying to post book reviews (we'll see how that goes) I should introduce myself. I am 23 years old, 24 in August. I married my husband in June 2006. Our first child, Holly, was born in April 2007 and our second, Aiden, in November 2008. I've held a few part time jobs here and there but have basically been a stay at home mom for four years.

I loved to read in high school and spent any free periods I had in the library. After high school though I did two semesters of college, one living in the dorms and one commuting the two hours (an hour there, an hour home). I love college, I like to learn new things. I don't like tests, well they are okay, but I hate papers, group projects, and public speaking of any kind. While I liked going to school I had no idea what I wanted from a college education. Starting a family seemed like the way to go to me.

During my crazy years after high school I never read. I played The Sims, I had a part time job, and then I got into playing World of Warcraft. I became hooked on WoW and finally quit playing because I knew I was playing it way to much. Sometime in my withdrawal from WoW period I was walking through a store and the cover of a book caught my attention. So I bought it and read it even though I had no idea what it was about. It was Eclipse my Stephenie Meyer ironically.

Since Eclipse I've been a book addict again. I've learned to balance my chores around the house, caring for my kids, reading, and even World of Warcraft occasionally. But my nearest and dearest hobby always has been reading. I will read just about anything I get the chance to read. I prefer fiction stories though. I do read adult genre books but overall I find young adult to be my favorite.

My absolute favorite authors are: Cassandra Clare, Richelle Mead, Claudia Gray, Rachel Vincent, Melissa Marr, Jenna Black, Charlaine Harris, Lesley Livingston, Bree Despain, Melissa de la Cruz, Megan McCafferty, Meg Cabot,
You know what, rather than typing authors names for 3 hours I'll just say you can find me on :)

I absolutely love books and reading and I'm hoping that I'll be able to connect with other people who share that. I have an awful habit of rambling on so if my posts are long winded and make no sense I apologize but please feel free to leave me a comment telling me to shut up :)
