I love reading and I love books. Lots of books. My house is full of them; bedroom, attic, dining room, kitchen, living room, shelves, cupboards, draws. Books in every nook and cranny. This year I was given the best christmas present ever. EVER. A kindle. I was reading maybe 2/4 books a month in 2010, but in August alone I read 17 (I was successfully avoiding college work). Having a kindle means I can read even more, which is always a good thing, right?
Right now I'm all about Urban Fantasy (and all it's sub-genres) but I do read others: paranormal romance, biography, travel, adventure, history, science and nature.
I'm 35, have a boyfriend, 3 teenage boys (13,15,17), and work 4 days a week. I love easily and hate hard.
I'm going to try and average 3 books a week throughout the year but I'm going to only post 2 reviews per week. I originally started posting as I was reading, but I know at some point I'm going to run out of steam. This way I'll be ahead of myself when I do. I'm currently (as of 20/3/11) 16 reviews ahead of my posted reviews so you may find that some of the reviews of books I read in January are posted in February. For a clearer idea of which books were read when check out the month tags, or the monthly round ups.
I feel that I should mention that my reviews (if they can really be called that) are based on my feelings, my enjoyment, and my experience of reading the book and that is all. They aren't based on plot or sentence structure or any other element of writing a book. I may on occasion mention these things but they are not solely based on them. I'm not qualified to comment or pass judgement on the elements of writing a book, but I am qualified to express my feelings, so that is what I do :)
