Edel (edellittlebookfairy) | 3 comments Hi I'm Edel :0) I read pretty much everything from every genre. I just love reading!!!I started a blog fairly recently , I can be found here- www.edelwaugh.blogspot.com
I prefer paper copies of books,I live in Ireland. I love to review for fun as well as using it as a way to remind myself what I thought of the books ( as I have read well over 1000 books this becomes very handy).

Barbara (lv2scpbk) | 2 comments Hi Everyone, I'm Barb. I review books alot on here (Goodreads) but have been researching places to do reviews. I have done several reviews last year, one or two for the Arts Fest in our area and I believe one online. I've been leaning toward setting up my own blog also as a option.

I mostly lean toward Contemporary books and Inspirational (like Angela Hunt) but also love dog (any animal) books, history, memoirs, and others. I like variety. I read all kinds of genres.

message 18: by Jeffrey (new)

Jeffrey Michael (jeffmichael) | 1 comments Hey there folks, I'm an avid reader along with being an author. Reading has been a passion of mine for decades now. From time to time I've had to temper my voracious reading appetite because I was in school or other life consuming activities but with the advent of e-readers (on my phone, on my iPad, on my computer) I now can carry a book with me anywhere! :) I figure if I'm going to read it I might as well share my thoughts on the book so I always review any book I've finished and, in some cases, couldn't finish.


message 19: by Casey (new)

Casey (CaseyBell) Hello everyone! My name is Casey B and I am 25, well tomorrow 26 years old LOL I love to read pretty much anything but paranormal and horror are definitely my favorite. I live in Pennsylvania and while it has very pretty scenery, it is very boring around here. So reading makes this area bearable. I always love to review the books I read but my reviews usually aren't very lengthy or to detailed. Sometimes I get carried away but for the most part I keep them simple and to the point.


message 20: by Julie (new)

Julie (juliew8) | 2 comments Hi everyone. I'm an avid reader and accidental reviewer. I started putting them at my blog for friends who wanted to know more about e-books and book recommendations and it kind of snowballed from there. I don't belong to any of the paid review sites, or charge for reviews, because I don't want the pressure of making it a service. At this point of my life, I'm all about doing what I want, when I want, and minimizing stress.

My blog is http://juliew8.com.

I prefer thrillers and murder mysteries but will consider other genres. I don't do erotica, paranormal, YA, short stories or novellas.

Thanks for the invite!

message 32: by Amanda (new)

Amanda  | 2 comments Hiya! My name is Amanda and I'm 23 years old. I do NOT own a kindle or e-reader or anything like that. Which is depressing because so many authors are going digital and sometimes its actually hard to get a tangible copy of a book! Grr!

Anyway, I am a little picky on books. I prefer YA, Paranormal Romance, Islamic books or books about women in other countries. I dislike "chick-lit"

Please see my shelved books for more information :D

message 35: by Junying (new)

Junying Hi, Mitzi, - thanks for the invite :) Hello everyone in this fab new group of readers and authors :).

I've got a couple of books which I'll list at the end of this message.

READERS: If any of you literary inclined would like to read either of them, please give me a shout. I'd love to have more reviews for, especially Trials of Life, based on true events about bullying at work and much more.

Here is my blog for you to check me out: http://www.junyingkirk.com/.

I would welcome book reviews from you about other authors' works, if you do not have your own blog site and want a platform to share your views.

Authors: please check on my SERVICES page on my blog, where I offer support to fellow Indie authors/artists. Please contact me if you think I can be of any help to your work - I do read a great deal but not every genre. It's all on my blog page, which I hope you would find interesting & informative.

I would like to held a contest/give-away when my new book is released in a few weeks time, and would inform everyone here.

Thanks & Regards!

The Same Moon Trials of Life


message 36: by Debbie (new)

Debbie Hi my name is Debbie. I absolutely LOVE to read! There must be a exclamation point there because it is one of my all time favorite past times. I read about three books a week now and would love to do a review if a new author needs one. My blog site caters to inspiration and writing more than books, but I have done many book reviews and would welcome the chance to do more.


message 37: by Jefferson (new)

Jefferson Smith (jeffersonsmith) | 3 comments Hi gang, my name is Jefferson Smith. I'm a fantasy novelist and I write about strong female characters who have lots of attitude, and a wicked sense of humor. I do not write about vampires, werewolves, elves or dwarves. There are other writers out there who are filling that niche. Instead, I prefer to explore other mythologies - djin, sprites, wendigo, gnomes, etc. - as well as making up a few of my own.

Since I work in fantasy, I also read a lot of it too, and most of what I read I will then review here on GoodReads. Although I need to warn people that I'm not a typical reviewer. In my experience, too many people are too quick to award 4 and 5 stars. I like to use the entire star spectrum, and I'm not shy about giving out one- and two-star rankings. Especially these days, when so many self-published books are reaching the e-shelves without benefit of an editor, and often without benefit of even a second draft, I believe that readers need to know when, IMHO, a title is not quite ready for public viewing.

So if you like the fantasy genre and want to get a professional's opinion about what's good and what isn't quite ready yet, then please feel free to friend me.

message 42: by Cerece (new)

Cerece Murphy (cerecerenniemurphy) | 3 comments Hi! I'm Cerece and I am the author of Order of the Seers, a new sci-fi thriller that was just released last week. I love to read, but I don't think I will have any time to review books in the near future. I envy those of you that will. =)

Thanks so much! I can't wait to see which books you guys recommend. When I finish writing the sequel, I am going to reward myself with some serious reading time, just for me. :-)


message 46: by Jody Joy (new)

Jody Joy (jodys_gr) Hi my name is Jody and I am a book reviewer, since I am an avid book reader I felt I should put it to good use a few years ago. You can check my past work at:http://jodisbookreviews.blogspot.com I review for Worthy Publishing, Thomas Nelson Publishers, Zondervan, Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers, and I have also done some self-publishers which I no longer do, unless otherwise noted, etc. I also like to request two books, one for review and one for a giveaway, if that is not possible one book is fine. I just prefer to giveaway a fresh clean tight book. You may also read my request review policy on my blog.as well, thank you.
God bless,
Jody J

Cecilia Robert (Cece26) | 1 comments Thanks for the invite, Mitzi. :) My name is Cecilia, from Vienna Austria. I'm a writer as well as LOVE reading and reviewing whenever I can.


message 48: by Jo (new)

Jo | 2 comments Thank you for the invitation to join. I'm Jo.

I am a freelance writer.

I am also a photographer. I love natural images, but a part of me enjoys the challenge of taking a shot and twisting it to be something completely different. I guess you could say it is MY way of painting a picture.


I live in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, but still like to claim my birth heritage.

I was born in the land of Banjo Paterson, gum trees, and weather extremes.

Grew up in Sydney and Wollongong. Left to explore the wilds of Africa, doing a detour that had me living in Holland for 3 years.

Eventually returned to Oz – living in Queensland, where you need instructions if you are to survive.

In 1993 packed up and headed to the land of the long white cloud, which is not true.

Summers here are astoundingly beautiful and blue.

Now the kids have gone out to explore life – well for once it is all about me.

Graduated with a Bachelor of Communications from Massey University in 2008. Other than the birth of my children it was the most defining moment of my life.

I live with a demented fox terrier called Chevvy, 2 cats, a female named Jack and a male named Charlie, as well as a cockatiel named Crash.

I am writing my first novel, a short film script, a screenplay, as well as poetry, short stories, and more recently articles, e-books, and web-pages for a website.

Art, stories, poetry, music, people, animals, nature, sometimes the smallest things can be the source of the biggest inspiration.

The softest whisper, the wind blowing across the grass, the sun warmed sand under your feet, the taste of rain on your tongue - life is the biggest inspiration of all.

I am also slightly obsessed with the TV show Supernatural, The Boys, and the Impala.

I have a blog at:

http://jobryantnz.wordpress.com/

I can also be found hanging out at the following places:

Julie Witt (jwitt33) | 1 comments Hi, my name is Julie and I'm a reader and reviewer of almost all genres! I mostly prefer YA, fantasy/sci fi/paranormal romances, urban fantasy, cozy mysteries, and really any type of mystery/thriller book, along with horror! I think that covers all of it :)


message 50: by Dawn (new)

Dawn Kunda (satchel) | 5 comments Hi, I'm Dawn Kunda, romantic suspense author and reader of romance, mysteries, woman's fiction, historical fiction, and I'm sure some other genres that just sound intriguing.
I review for http://happilyeverafterthoughts.blogs... and my website is http://www.dawnkunda.com.
Thanks for inviting me to this group as it looks like a lot of fun!
