I’m Jolie and I am a bookworm.
I have been blogging since 2008/2009. 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 2010 when I made the switch to WordPress. And I have been on here ever since.
Besides being a bookworm, I am also a mother. I have 3 kids who try their best to drive me crazy. They are 14, 12, and 6. My 14 year old will be going into 9th grade. My 12 year old is going into 7th grade and my 6 year old is going into 1st grade. Because of COVID, we are doing school a bit differently this year. My 6 year old will be doing virtual learning, my 12 year old will be doing 2 days on/2 days virtual learning/1 day of makeup and my 14 year old will be doing 1 week in person/2 weeks virtual learning. It’s going to be an interesting fall, that’s for sure.
I should mention my SO. We have been together for 16 years and still going strong. He deals with mine and the kids shenanigans pretty well….lol.
I am also a gamer. Right now, I am playing Sims 4 and Black Desert Online. On my Steam account, I have downloaded a bunch of Final Fantasy games, Stardew Valley, Elder Scroll Online and a few other games. On top of that, I have a Nintendo Switch and have downloaded Animal Crossings. I am officially hooked. I also have downloaded the NES games that come for free on it.
I do have other interests other than reading and playing online games. I love to cook/bake. I try to make 2 new recipes a week and have subscriptions too a few cooking magazines. I have a folder fill to the brim with recipes. My kids are often my guinea pigs when it comes to trying the recipes out. More often than not, they like what I make.
