Bibliolater: a person who is passionately enthusiastic about books
From the moment I could read, I was absolutely hooked. I remember always having a book for my ride on the school bus. I was often bullied by two older boys on that bus because of my love of books. But did that deter me? No. Absolutely not. My childhood best friend kept me supplied in books as she had so many and I had so few. The library became my friend. Annual book fairs at school became like Christmas. As the years past, my love for great stories grew and grew. Reading became my haven, my escape from the real world. And I wouldn’t have had it any other way. George RR Martin said it best, “A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.”
What do I read? Everything. I’m a moody reader. I like romances, thrillers, contemporary fiction, fantasy, YA and Sci-fi. And when I’m in a book rut, I tend to go back to the classics. So yea….everything. If you have any book recommendation, let me know. You can click on Contact to send me an email or follow me on social media.
I go into every book with a clear mind in order to give the narrative and the author a fair chance. I also give authors multiple chances. Authors can grow and their writing can mature. They should not be judged on one book alone.

Note: I don’t rate using 1/2 stars so I round up. If a book deserves 4.5 stars, I’ll give it a 5. I like to think I’m generous that way (insert sly smirk).
