Meet the Reviewers: Effy

Hello, fellow book lovers! My name is Monica, but everyone calls me Effy. I’m 23 and I live in Fort Hood, TX with my husband and two cats. I’m trying to convince him that we “need” a dog. *fingers crossed. Gosh, these things are always hard. It reminds me of those dreaded interview questions. Why should we hire you? Besides the fact that I’m awesome, and qualified? I’m tired of living off of Ramen. HIRE ME!  My favorite genre is YA. Anything YA. Historical, paranormal, dystopian. All of it. Love it. Historical romance novels also have a soft spot in my heart. I also like adult paranormal books, and just anything. Feed me, please, with more books!

I’ve always dreamed of becoming a writing one day, and last year I got a fortune cookie that said, I kid you not, “you are a lover of words. Someday you should write a book.” So, yeah. The fortune cookie has spoken!! I love reading. And I know a lot of people say that, but I can spend days reading, with little to no sleep, eating ramen in block form just to keep from having to turn my eyes away from the page. Sometimes I get caught up in all the stories I have going on in my mind, that I don’t see anything. Chairs, walls, family members, you name it, I’ve tripped on it, walked into it, or ignored it.

If I had to pick a favorite book, it would have to be The Secret by Julie Garwood. It’s the first romance novel I’d ever read, and it stuck with me.  She makes you laugh, makes you cry, and I have read all of her historical romances, and I never get tired of it. Her books are like my oldest, dearest friends.

I’m really excited to be a apart of this group and get to some reading!
