I am a busy person (I know, aren’t we all), but I read or listen to between 60-75 books a year. I work full-time, I have two young children (5 & 7), I am married, and I’m addicted to Netflix binge watching so sometimes I don’t read as much as I would like. I’m also a sucker for a happy ending, and hate to close a book without it (I’m looking at you Allegiant).
I cannot, CAN NOT, deal with whiny female protagonists. If you read enough of my reviews you might see a theme.
Connect with me!
I started this blog because I wanted to have a central place to post my thoughts on the books I have read and/or want to read and to connect to other book enthusiasts like myself. I like to connect via blogs with other people since most of the people in my personal life are not readers so I have no one to relate to in this area of my life. I am also painfully introverted and have a hard time meeting people with like interests. I love listening to audio books too, they are the best for commuting and cleaning.
I use a rating system using the below criteria.
= Hated it.
= Eh, it was okay. I don’t think I would recommend it though.
= Liked it, but there have been some things that I couldn’t get past (plot inconsistencies, movement of the story, etc.). Overall, I would recommend still.
= Loved it! It’s one of my new favorites
= It was amazing and I couldn’t stop thinking about this book. Go purchase this book right now. I do not give out 5 stars lightly. Books that are rated 5/5 by me earn it.
