I’m a 32 year old English teacher who spends my days discussing the classics with 10th graders and spends my nights with my nose in steamy romance books. When I’m not consuming stories, I’m spending my time with my husband, my two girls, and our golden retriever, Gatsby.
I have always enjoyed reading, but, after graduating from college and starting my career as a teacher, my reading time had decreased to almost nothing. With each passing year, I got more and more free time and realized that I missed reading and getting lost in books. So, I wanted to try to get back into it, and romance had always been a genre I loved, so I started there. After scanning through Amazon’s pages of romance books, I decided to take a chance on J. Daniel’s Sweet Addiction (Sweet Addiction, 1), and I was hooked (How does one not get hooked on Reese?). I suddenly began consuming this genre at a ravenous pace, and there has yet to be a sub-genre of romance that I have not enjoyed (sometimes the more taboo, the better). I now read anywhere from 4-6 books a week and spend countless hours talking about books with my friends or various on-line acquaintances through Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads, and Instagram, and looking for good deals.
This blog was started simply to give me another avenue to discuss the books and authors I love with people who share the same affection. I hope to share with people an objective literary take on books, as I can’t seem to suppress the English teacher when I read. I also I want to be able to keep you up-to-date with information about books, such as covers, release dates, pre-order information, as well as my favorite authors, characters, quotes, etc.
I hope that this blog helps you find more people with whom to share your love of reading. Finally, I hope that you enjoy the blog, and that the information you find here leads you to a new author or sub-genre of romance that you love.
