Meet the Reviewers: April

April here! Ever since I was introduced to The Berenstain Bears as a child, I was honestly and truly hooked on books. I read anything and everything that I could get my little hands on. Now that my hands are not so little, I still hold that obsession and deep love and reverence for books. I never thought that I would say this, but I have even moved into the digital age and am in serious love with my Nook Color and Kindle – yes, I do have both and together they make me blissfully happy.

I read a very large range of genres from contemporary romance, suspense/thrillers and cozy mysteries to paranormal and horror. Lately, however, my favorite has been Urban Fantasy. This was started by the Succubus series by Richelle Mead and I can’t wait for the newest (and sadly) the final in this series due to be released at the end of August. One of my all time favorite books is The Things That Keep Us Here by Carla Buckley. It tells the story of exactly how far and to what extremes a mother will go to to keep her children safe. It is an amazing book and one that I never hesitate to recommend to everyone!

What does a book obsessed person do? Well, have their very own book review blog, of course. I began mine about 3 years ago and have such fun with it. It is an excellent creative outlet. You can discover it for yourself at Cafe of Dreams Book Reviews!

My other – and most important obsession – are my two young children. My daughter and son – both are ornery, but I adore them more than life. My husband, children, and I live in a small town in Iowa where I am a work-at-home mom, doing freelance writing, book reviews, and as much book/author promo as possible. I also aspire to become a novelist.
