Readers coming to my blog will find book reviews from many genres. I read and review all types of fiction from horror to young adult. My reviews are honest and always spoiler free. I never want to spoil the magic of reading a good book.
Have you ever stayed up reading all night even when you had to work the next day, and what was the book you cursed while fighting to stay awake all afternoon?
*rolls eyes* Oh this happens too many times to count! I have a habit of saying, just one more chapter. *liar* Personally I wish sleeping were optional so I could read all night. The last book that kept me up...hmm. The Restorer, by Amanda Stevens, and I absolutely loved it. Yep, I needed an IV drip of coffee the next day!
I've done the "Just one more chapter," too many times as well. IV drip of coffee--I love it!
What is your beverage of choice while reading?
Coffee is my beverage of choice all day, every day. *drools thinking about it* I love curling up with a good book and a cup of joe, to me it’s like a little slice of heaven.
Can you share with us up to 5 authors who are auto-buy for you?
Only 5 *sheesh* that is hard.
Jayne Anne Krentz (aka Jayne Castle, aka Amanda Quick) and her Arcane Society Novels.
Mira Grant aka Seanan Mcguire
Now that is only 5 of about 100..LOL *no seriously, I am an addict*
Is your significant other/family supportive of your book addiction?
I have been married 25 years and my hubby so gets and supports my addiction. Before I got my e-reader (which he bought), he would keep an excel spread sheet for me with my books and series. He would also order and pick up books at the library for me every week. He is a keeper! I love that he lets me sit there and talk about a book or character, when I know he has no clue what I am talking about. Give that man a Klondike bar!
Wow--yeah, give him a whole box!
How much is too much for an ebook?
While I have paid slightly more during “Must have! Read Now” moments, I think 9.99 for new releases is my threshold.
|The Sunday Post|
I started the Sunday Post which was inspired in part by IMM. I wanted to showcase my books, but I also wanted a post to recap my weekly posts and share upcoming news. The meme has grown each week and I love visiting fellow blogger’s Sunday Post and finding out she/he reviewed an awesome book on Tuesday when I was too busy to check new posts.
What is your favorite genre and is there anything you won’t review?
I love so many genres but my favorites at the moment are dystopian/post apocalyptic, urban fantasy and historical fiction. I am not a huge fan of contemporary but have a few series I follow religiously. I will read non-fiction if the subject matter appeals to me.
What does it take in a book to absolutely annoy you to the point where you quit reading or throw the book at the wall?
Hahahaha..a lot. I have this horrible problem, I cannot let go. Once I start reading I am so afraid that on the next page something amazing will happen and like a caterpillar in a cocoon the book will morph into something I love. Sadly, that doesn’t happen. My biggest pet peeves are authors who tell instead of show, lack of details and paper characters.
What makes you a fan for life?
As a book addict, there is this high I chase. Yes, exactly like a junkie, but I need the rush I experience from a good book. When an author gives me that, I become a fan for life.
