About me and books...
Welcome to my book review blog, thanks for visiting! I've loved reading from a young age, actually I don't remember a time where I didn't have a book nearby. I read for fun and it's an escape for me. So, for this reason, you'll mostly see only fiction books being reviewed. For the most part, nonfiction books remind me of reading for school assignments. AKA, no fun! LOL, yes, it's silly, but it is what it is. I finished reading text books when I graduated from college! Once in a blue moon I may read a nonfiction book, but it’s usually under duress! :-) So don't expect to see much of it!
I've been reviewing fiction books since I was in high school. Every book I read, I reviewed it and organized it by year in a 3 ring binder. Cheesy, I know. This is me, a bookaholic and book reviewer. Since I have long outgrown wanting to hand write book reviews in a 3 ring binder, I started adding my reviews to goodreads.com. I wanted to share my love of books with even more fellow readers, and to do that I had to reach those beyond the goodreads community. In addition to my love of reading books I love to talk about them too! I've been told more than once when talking about what happened in a book, "It sounds like a movie!" I guess that must mean that I get super excited about the books I enjoy. Thus the creation of my site, Shelf Addiction.
