Why blog? Considering that my first word was “book”, it was pretty much a given that I would be a voracious reader. Though my tastes have broadened from Nancy Drew, Little House, and The Secret Garden to include a bevy of marvelous genres and authors, I still love to read. Talking about these beloved books seemed like a natural extension of my superpower, and thus a blog was born.
What can you expect from this blog? Books reviewed honestly and from the heart, written out of my love for stories and my knowledge of what makes good fiction. Interviews with some of my favorite authors. Giveaways of some of my favorite books. Top Ten Tuesdays. Gushing over my latest book boyfriends. (Sorry, oh-so-tolerant hubby!)
The highlight of blogging for me is when I am able to introduce you to your next favorite read or a new-to-you author!
What kind of books do you review? My passion is Christian fiction, but I have a handful of go-to authors in the general market as well. I love to laugh. I love books that touch my heart too. I read both historical and contemporary fiction, and I’m always on the outlook for another great kissingbook! If it’s got suspense, all the better. You won’t find much science fiction/fantasy here, other than fairy tales and the occasional nod to Narnia or Harry Potter. No vampires or werewolves, either.
Do you ever do anything besides read? Not willingly. 😉 Actually, in my other life, I live in Kentucky with my hubby of 15 years and our quirky dog Zuzu (who also happens to be my unofficial official blog mascot). I’m the long-distance cool aunt to NINE nieces and nephews, and I teach English as a Second/Other Language to International Adults. When I’m not blogging here at RimSP, you can find me at RT Book Reviews Magazine, Straight Off the Page, Diversity Between the Pages, CBA Christian Market, and Hoarding Books.
