About Me

My name is Kristen. I'm a stay-at-home mom with a passion for books. I'm new to blogging, but I have always wanted to write and I love to talk about books and reading so I thought I would give this a try. (Hopefully, I don't suck too bad).

From the moment I read my first Nancy Drew book (most likely before that), I have been a bookworm. I am never without a book and I am always searching for my next great read. I love the feel of a book in my hand, the smell of a new book (or old). I love the anticipation of starting a new book, of opening the cover for the first time, the slight sigh of the spine as you do, and the discovery of what is waiting for you in those pages.  One of my favorite fantasies is curling up with a new book, a comfy blanket and a hot cup of coffee, preferably on a rainy or snowy day. (fantasy because I'm a wife and Mommy, this doesn't happen often).

 As to what I read, I always turned my nose up when my best friend would suggest I read this or that "trashy romance" novel until I picked up a copy of Jennifer Crusie's "Bet Me" thinking it was a light, beachy read. I stayed up that night until 3 a.m. to finish that "trashy romance"and thus another addict of the romance novel was born. 

Besides Romance, I also love to read Historical Fiction, Popular Fiction,History and to a lesser extent, Sci-Fi & Fantasy. But I am open to any book that catches my eye or interests me, regardless of the genre.

My blog is dedicated to all things books and reading. I am going to be posting reviews, reading challenges, recommendations and anything else I find interesting that applies to books. I hope you like what you find here.



  1. Just found your blog and I have to say I thought I was reading about myself (except for the trashy romance part!)
    I too just started blogging last month (a crazy little book review blog)
    I look forward to reading more!

  2. Thanks Amber, I love your blog as well. It looks like we're two of a kind!
