I’m Jolie and I am a bookworm.
I have blogged since 2008/2009 (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 13, 11, and 5. Please pray for me to have the patience to survive the teen years…lol. And also pray that my 13-year-old survives her teen years. Her attitude is driving her father and myself up a wall.
I am also a gamer. I have played World of Warcraft since 2006. For the Alliance….lol. I used to be hardcore, raiding and all that jazz. Now, I am very casual. Very casual. I am loving BFA and can’t wait to see what this expansion brings.
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 the Mongolian Beef dish that I made a few weeks back. I got flustered because there was a ton of things going on at once while I was making it. So I prepped nothing. Fortunately, I was able to get everything cut and diced in record time. And it was good.
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 Craigslist 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. Maine Coon has been thrown around. All I know is that we rescued two kittens that were skin and bones plus missing fur because they were allergic to fleas and turned them into a couple of spoiled, much-loved cats
So that’s me. Hope you enjoy the blog!!
