I’ve always loved reading, but it wasn’t until a long weekend in June 2011 when, on a book researching blitz, I discovered three books that would turn reading into an addiction as well as a love.
The books were Thoughtless and Effortless by S C Stephens (Kellan Kyle – swoon) and Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire. I became so consumed by these books and the characters that I spent the whole weekend immersed in these stories and could not put them down.
The authors had written stories that spoke to me and touched me in a way nothing before them had. The experience I felt reading these books was something I knew I wanted to feel time and time again.
Since then I’ve been fortunate to have read some amazing books, expanded my reading genres, forged some great friendships and every day I thank the wonderful authors for bringing their books into my life.
I never go anywhere without my Kindle and reading to me is not a hobby, it’s an important part of who I am and if you want to see a huge smile on my face, just ask me to discuss or recommend one of my favourite books! The smile will literally blind you 🙂

I have loved reading since I was 5 years old.
I’ve always had a book in my hand no matter where I was. That is until last year when I got a kindle for my birthday. I can safely say it was the BEST present EVER!! I have since discovered some of the most amazing authors I would never have known about if it wasn’t for my Lawson (who yes is my kindle). I named him after a character by one of my favorite authors Kristen Ashley.
Depending on how busy my life gets I can read anything between 3 – 4 books a week. I don’t discriminate, I will literally read anything and everything as long as it has romance, angst or humor in it. I consider anything 3 + stars as a good book and a lot of the time 5 stars just isn’t enough.
I never compare books to others when rating them. I don’t review the books in the true definition of the word I mostly write about how I felt during and after finishing it. Authors are my Rock Stars…books are my life!!
