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.
I didn’t start blogging seriously until 2015. I had zero clue about street teams, NetGalley, or author requests. So, all of my earlier reviews are books that I got for free on Amazon. In 2016, I discovered NetGalley and started to get author requests. 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 14, 12, and 6. My 14 year old will be attending a charter based high school in the fall. She is taking their criminal justice course. My 12 year old is in 6th grade and my 6 year old is in Kindergarten. Oh, the looks I get when I say I have a kid in 8th grade and in Kindergarten…lol.
I am also a gamer. I used to play World of Warcraft. I stopped because I wasn’t having fun anymore. Right now, I am playing SIMS 4 and Elder Scrolls Online.
I have been with my SO for almost 15 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, 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. He was afraid of who would get them. His regret, now, is that we should have taken the mother too. When we got them, they were a mess. Missing fur, infested with fleas and super skittish. But, that was 3 years ago. They are now happy, fat cats who dread going to the vet….lol.
So that’s me. Hope you enjoy the blog!!
