About Me

My name is Stephanie, and I am a mother of six. I have small fiber neuropathy, and a muscle spasm disorder. Due to my physical limitations, I am free to enjoy one of my favorite passions in life. READING!!! I love reading books. I pretty much have my own library. I prefer to actually hold a book. I am a bibliophile. I have so many favorite authors, but I will try to name a few. J.K. Rowling, Ransom Riggs, Darynda Jones, Rick Riordan, Lauren Kate, and so many others. I would name those like Shakespeare, and Edgar Allan Poe, but those are my classic favorites. Everyone already knows who they are. I created this blog so that I may begin reviewing other books. I have such an eclectic taste when it comes to what I read. I hope to inspire people to read new books. I usually read two to three books a week, but that depends on what my kids have going on. I may be a busy mom, but I am never too busy to enjoy a great book! I am also working towards my Master's in English. I want to teach high school English. I want to inspire a new generation of writer's, readers, poets, and speakers. 




I am also a total Harry Potter nerd! Ravenclaw forever!!! If you do not like Harry Potter, then we cannot be friends. I am kidding, of course, but it does help!!

 I read all types of books, but there are a few genres I do not particularly like.

I do not like books about specific religions. This means I do not like reading books about the specific religion. If an actual story develops around it, that is fine.

I do not like Romance books on their own. This means I do not like reading books about sex, erotica, etc. 

I do like books that have a romance in it, but it is not the main focus of the book.

I also do not like reading political books. In order for me to have unbiased opinions I cannot read them. I am sorry. 

I know I should not be picky, but I do have some standards. 


I prefer paper copies of the book be mailed to me in exchange for an honest review, but I will make an exception for PDF/Word Doc if I think the story is interesting enough. It is nothing to do with the format. My eyes hurt from looking at the computer for long periods of time. I do my schooling online, so I am on the computer a fair amount of time during the day. I did get myslef a Kindle, so Kindle format will also be accepted.


If you have any questions please feel free to comment on here, or the contact page. 



I will read books in the order that I receive them! You will be able to see the order on my Currently Reading page.

I post reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, Barnes & Noble, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, as well as here. If you would like a review put on a different site, please let me know which site(s).

Thank you!



***I would like to apologize for falling behind in my reading. I have been super busy with school. I graduated at the beginning of this month (May), and immediately started working towards my next degree. I will try to read as much as possible when I am not doing my school work! Thank you for your patience!
