About Me

Hi everyone! My name is Kimberly and as dorky as it sounds, I am such a book nerd. My sisters nicknamed me “Book Reader” when they were 5 since they would always find me with a book when they tried to get my attention. So thank you Angelique and Mia for giving me a great blog name. I read about 3-6 books a week, depending on the size of the book, and yes I am employed and support myself! I do have a life outside of reading but to be quite honest, reading is my passion. I love it. I love escaping into a new world that was created from thin air and learning about different people. I love forming attachments and getting caught up in these character’s lives and drama. In my mind, it’s healthier than getting caught up in my own!

I read all kinds of books, but mostly New Adult/Adult Romance and Erotica. I do read YA Dystopian books and some Paranormal books too. However, I try not to pigeon hole myself in and stay open minded. I love me some stories about hot men, steamy romances, teen angst, the supernatural. I try not to stick to the same genre of books and it takes more than steamy sex scenes to make me like a book. There needs to be a good storyline. I constantly get asked what book I recommend, so I figure why not create blog where everyone could go to find their next book to read?!? I love blogs about books and follow many of them to get suggestions and feedback on books. So hopefully I can do the same for someone else.

My rating system. I don’t like harsh negative reviews. I don’t think it is fair to prejudice other people against a book I particularly did not care for nor is it right to trash someone who spent hours working hard on their book. However, I am not afraid to write about something I did not like about the book. I try to use constructive criticism and will rate out of 5 stars. And to be clear I am very specific about what books I give 5 stars. I really think hard about my rating system and do not liberally give out 4, 4.5 or 5 stars. I AM 100% HONEST IN MY REVIEW AND DO NOT ACCEPT COMPENSATION, OF ANY FORM, IN EXCHANGE FOR A GOOD REVIEW.

5 stars: ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT and would not change a thing about the book
4.5 stars: LOVED IT but there was something(s) that I wish was different
4 stars: GREAT BOOK and I would highly recommend it to everyone
3.5 stars: LIKED IT BUT there were more than a few things I wish was different
3 stars: JUST OKAY – this story could have been better
2 stars: DID NOT LIKE IT
1 star: I could not finish this book for various reasons

  1. Wow! You read 3 to 6 books a week! I wish I could do that but my life doesn’t give me the time. Between working, being a mom, blogging and working on my debut novel squeezing in time to read is almost nonexistent. My reading time is once a night around midnight until I can’t keep my eyes open 🙂 I look forward to seeing some of your blog post! Nice to meet you!

    • Hi Jaime – thanks for reading my blog! I own my own business which is stressful in of itself. I read as a stress relief! Good luck on your debut novel! I’d love to read it when it is ready. Happy writing!!!

      • Thanks! I completely understand relieving stress.

        I would love it if you would read my novel! If you haven’t already, you can follow my blog for updates, sneak peeks and future giveaways. Have a wonderful weekend!
