Jennifer's Books

I have loved reading for as long as I can remember, but if I had to point to one book that changed that love of reading into a need to read, it would have to be The Outsiders, by S.E. Hinton...

Punya Reviews…

Oh, I don’t really remember what the first book I ever read was but I do know that  reading books was something that has been instilled in me from childhood. My first book very well may have been a nursery rhyme or a fairytale. But I can tell you the first book that introduced Romance to me. It was a translated copy of Victoria Holt’s On the Night of the Seventh Moon. Yes I loved the title of this book enough to go in search of more Victoria Holt books. It sure did make me a Romance novel lover..

Tigus

As I was growing out of that series for young readers, I jumped to one of two Agatha Christie books lying around the house--And Then There Were None --and that really hooked me on Mystery novels...

Nicole Reads

I remember finding it in a bookstore; I was maybe 9 or 10 years old, where my mom left me for five minutes while she went to a store next door. I sat down in a corner and started reading it. My mom came back to get me, and I made her buy me the book...

Silence in the library

I read every day. If I’ve not taken at least half an hour to enter a fictional world then I start to get antsy. But generally I spend at least 1.5 to 2 hours reading a day. If a book is really good I’ve been known to stay up long past the pumpkin hour to finish it, even though I know I’ll be like a zombie at work...

That's What I'm Talking About

I blog as a hobby, and my blog is a project of love. I do spend a lot of my free time reading, listening to books, writing reviews, and posting to my blog. So yes, it has a huge impact on my world. As far as the impact to my reading life, I am more open to trying and enjoying books outside my normal genres ...

#7 Follow Friday with book bloggers:
Sailing in a Sea of Words

My love for reading was most definitely fostered and encouraged by my parents. They read to me as a child and I began reading on my own at a very young age. I can’t remember a time where I didn’t love reading. It’s a core part of me and without it, I would have a hard time recognizing myself...

Momma Says to Read

Honestly, I was resistant at first. Seriously, who was going to read myblog? Once I started, I found that I really enjoy the blog and when I see the numbers on views, I get excited. So, I suppose you could say that blogging turned out to be a happy surprise for me...

Midu Reads [Nominated]

I asked my mom if I could buy some books and she said, she would pick out a few for me. The next day, she returned with this boring book with the least glamorous subject matter and the most unattractive cover. Lets just say, I didn't receive the gift with much grace. She sat me down and told me to give the book a try anyway. I did and as I read, I fell in love with the story. I have never stopped reading after that...

#10 Follow Friday with book bloggers:
The Book Gourmet

Books have been an integral part of my life since I can remember. My mom claims to have read fairy tales during her pregnancy, and the shelves in my room were always filled with books (fairy tales, fables, children's literature). Then, in elementary school, I got my library card and haven’t stopped reading ever since...

#11 Follow Friday with book bloggers:
Book Cupidity [Nominated]

Before I began book reviewing/book blogging, I remember that lonely, frustrated feeling of not being able to share how a book made me feel with people who 'got it'.  I wanted to talk about books with other people - writing about books seemed like the way to join the conversation...

99 problems, and a book ain't one

My love affair with books began when I was a child. We had this great used book store by my house and I remember riding my bike up to it frequently and finding so many great books. They used to do trade-ins too so once I was done reading I could go right back and trade them in for something new. Clearly before my book-hoarding days lol...

#13 Follow Friday with book bloggers:
Obsidian Blue [Nominated]

Due to blogging I found a lot of authors that I have never heard of before and fell in love with due to recommendations from fellow bloggers that I must stop what I am doing and read this book. I found myself also reading a lot of different genres due to seeing what fellow bloggers are reading and them making the book/author sound awesome...

#14 Follow Friday with book bloggers:
Char's Horror Corner [Nominated]

There weren’t a lot of other children around where I grew up, but there were a lot of elderly people. The bookmobile would come around so that those without transportation were able to get something to read, and in the summers I would stand in line with them. I loved to check out mysteries from Agatha Christie and other authors, and then I discovered Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and the great Edgar Allan Poe...

Bookish thoughts!!!

Reading slowly became more and more of a part of me. A huge part, the part that kept my brain quite when my anxiety got to much. Just an escape that I really needed. But I don't have anyone around me that is really into books and I couldn't just keep bottling all my book feelings up...

#16 Follow Friday with book bloggers:
OBSESSION WITH WORDS

I was not allowed to have regular books. I had the bible, a dictionary, a set of encyclopedias and a set of bible stories. I was not allowed to go to the library either, ever, for my entire childhood. A few times when a friend gave me a book they thought I would like my parents took the books away before I could read them. I went to this same school until I was 18 when I refused to go anymore. I left home and got my diploma through correspondence. At that point, the first REAL book I read was a book a found in a waiting room. It was V by A.C. Crispin and I still have it...

#17 Follow Friday with book bloggers:
Lost Girls Reviews

We love to share and discuss the latest books we are devouring, and also wanted a way to keep track of our favorites. We love reading reviews and recommendations from fellow book lovers who introduce us to books we may never have discovered otherwise. Also, we've met some wonderful authors and reviewed their ARCs. It is always such a thrill to walk into a book store and see a finished copy of a book we reviewed and loved months ago finally gracing the shelves in all their glory...

Leigha's Little Library

Books have always been a huge deal for me. They were my escape when I was sad or lonely. It was only natural that I would want to start writing reviews and other things about the books I read...

Wanda's Book Reviews

I usually read in my living room, in a recliner where I can put my feet up.  I have my trusty tray beside me for the cup of coffee or glass of wine necessary and I have my wonderful new blanket (but I have to be careful of it—it tends to put me right to sleep and I don’t get much reading done that way)...

#20 Follow Friday with book bloggers:
Murder by Death [Nominated]

I went for decades wondering if I was the only reader left on Earth because I never knew anyone who read for pleasure and enjoyed talking about books.  BookLikes changed that, and I find the only thing better than reading is buddy reading!  Whether you both like/hate the book, or you each have opposite views, the discussions add another dimension to the read...

Mary's Books

When I was little, my mom would take us to an old library in Newport, KY. It was one of the Carnegie Libraries. The children's selection of books was in the basement and I loved to borrow books from the library and would sit for as long as my mother would let me look at the books...
