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, though I’m starting to find many more books that I love in this speculative genre. No vampires or werewolves, though.
Do you ever do anything besides read?
Not willingly. 😉 Actually, in my other life, I live in Georgia with my hubby, and I’m a hands-on cool aunt to our eight nieces and nephews who live only a few miles from me. (We have two other nephews & a niece who live a day’s drive away, too.) When I’m not blogging here at RimSP, you can find me at Seekerville and Diversity Between the Pages. I also used to review for RT Book Reviews.
