Does sitting by a nice cozy fire, with a cup of hot tea/chocolate, and a book you can read for hours even when your eyes grow red and dry and you look sort of scary sitting there with your insomniac appearance? Then you fit this category perfectly! You love the power of the written word and it's eloquence; and you may like to read/write poetry or novels. You contribute to the smart people of today's society, however you can probably be overly-critical of works.
I'm the mother of three - Jelly Bean (age 26), Sugar Plum (age 21), and Sugar Bear (age 17). I work with numbers, but I love words. I also love chocolate, Diet Coke with Lime, the ocean, and BYU Women's Basketball.
I started this blog in January 2007 as a way to keep track of the books I read. Little did I know that there was a great book blogging community out there!
I enjoy an eclectic mix of genres, but young adult and historical fiction novels are among my favorites.
I post reviews here of many of the books I read. Book discussion is always welcome! I also track my participation in book challenges and other reading events here. Occasionally I post other book- or reading-related information or memes.
Unless otherwise noted, the books I review come from my personal collection or from the county library system. Complimentary copies of books I have received from authors, publishers, or publicists in exchange for an honest review are so noted.
