I’m Jolie and I am a bookworm.
I always have my Kindle on me. Always. I am that annoying person who pulls it out at the Dr’s office to get in a couple of paragraphs before she’s called back. Yeah, it’s kind of addiction.
I have been blogging since 2009/2010 (can’t remember). I have done books reviews since I started blogging. I figured, “Hey, I like reading and I like blogging so let’s combine the two“. I was on Blogger until about 2010 when I made the switch to WordPress. And I have been here ever since.
I didn’t start blogging seriously until 2015 when I got involved with product reviews while doing book reviews. I started doing more book reviews through Tomoson and started getting away from product reviews. In 2016, I decided to stop doing product reviews entirely and just do book reviews. I stumbled upon NetGalley and the rest is history.
Besides being a bookworm, I am also a mother. I have 3 kids who try their best to drive me crazy. They are 12, 10 and 4. Yes, I know the age differences between my older two and my youngest. She was a **happy** surprise.
I am also a gamer. I have played World of Warcraft since 2006. For the Alliance….lol. I am eagerly awaiting the new expansion!!
I cook and bake too. I have a personal goal of learning 2 new recipes a week. The hardest dish that I have made was probably the homemade chicken and basil soup. I didn’t have a dutch oven at the time and used a stock pan to make it. Well, the stock pan didn’t exactly fit on my stove. So, yeah, it didn’t turn out too good…lol.
I have been with my SO for 14 years. We are that couple that is so comfortable with each other that nothing fazes them. Nothing.
I have 2 cats that we rescued from a free Craiglist post. I had seen the post on Craigslist (it was for 1 kitten), contacted the woman and sent my SO to get the kitten. He came home with two. He said he couldn’t leave just one there. We are not sure about the breed. When we got them spayed, the woman seemed to think that they are a Maine Coon/Siamese mix. Considering the size of my girls and that they are both vocal, I believe that.
So that’s me. Hope you enjoy the blog!!
