The Busy Bibliophile

where I review books, mostly ya and chick-lit

about August 3, 2011

I’m a voracious reader from way back. 

Remember when you were hanging out with your friends on Friday night, roller skating to Nirvana and Ace of Base?  I was sitting at home reading a book.  When you were sneaking out and meeting up with a boy, I was under the covers with a flashlight reading.  Well, except for that one time…  Ahem.  Where was I?  Oh yeah, when you were snuggling up next to your boyfriend on the couch while watching Seinfeld, I was sitting next to my boyfriend on the couch reading while he watched Seinfeld.

Now I’m (sort of) all grown up and still reading.  At a red light?  Whip out what I’m reading and get in a page or 2.  Movie theater previews?  A chapter or two.  I can’t go to sleep at night without reading at least a bit.  At most meals, my Kindle is propped up in front of me.

I enjoy mysteries, horror, sci-fi and general fiction, though my true loves have always been chick lit and young adult novels. 

I look for a book with a plot that makes sense, strong characterizations (I hate when a character appears strictly to make an important point, and then vanishes, never to be heard from again), real dialogue and of course the romance (not bodice ripping heaving loins or the like, I’m talking real palm-sweat-inducing fluttering heart stuff).

This blog is my chance to share those great (and not so great) books that I find along the way.

I am in my early thirties and mom to the most wonderful young man.  I have a full-time job and attend school full-time.  Not only do I enjoy reading, I also enjoy writing and have 2 work-in-progress manuscripts.  I love to scrapbook, rubber stamp and shop. 

I watch lots of tv, mostly by recording everything and watching while getting ready for work in the mornings, or late at night while suffering insomnia.  I don’t get to the movie theater very often, but when I do, I like to see rom coms and action flicks.  I especially love anything with Jet Li, Jason Statham, Ryan Reynolds and Orlando Bloom (Legolas, sigh).

I would love to hear from any fellow readers or bloggers.  If you have a comment, suggestion or nitpick (seriously, I want to hear it all!), send me a message.
