I read too much. Ask anyone who knows me, or who stumbled on my Goodreads account or Facebook page, and they will surely tell you that I like to read. This is an understatement.
I live for reading. I can’t go without reading. I would rather buy books than clothes, jewelry, or food. We have overflowing bookcases in my house, invisible bookshelves on the wall, books in boxes in the closet that don’t fit anywhere else, and still I cannot stop buying them and reading them and loving them. There is always a book close at hand, I don’t leave the house without one, and I am always ready to recommend one to friends who ask. Also some who don’t.
Generally, I read around 150-175 books in a year. Yes, actually read them.
So this is another review site, right? This is yet another run-of-the-mill review generator who will gush to you about how amaaaaaazing this book was and how much I couldn’t put it down and how OMG you should totes go read it right now!!!2!
Not quite. I have criteria for the books that I recommend, things that I look for in books that make them enjoyable, and they’re things that I think people should know about before they pick up a book and start reading. They’re not bits that every book NEEDS to have to be a good read, but they’re assessments that would help someone pick out a book that they’re in the mood for. The list itself is coming up next, but I just wanted to introduce the site, the blog, and myself a little bit more before actually getting into the nitty gritty.
So hello. My name is Katie. I’m a 31 year old wife and mother, and I’m a bookoholic.
