Let Me Introduce Myself

My name is Liz, & I am a 27-year-old wife & mother. I was married for six years in November, & my son just celebrated his second birthday a few months ago. Needless to say, he keeps me very busy, especially since he inherited his dad's neverending supply of energy! I graduated with my BA in English in 2006 & currently live on the beautiful West Coast.

I have been a member of the blogging world since 2007 & felt like it was time for me to branch out from my family blog. I considered starting a blog for quilting, cooking, or photography, but decided the best route for me was books! I love to read & always have. I owe my early love for books to my nanny who read to me constantly & taught me my ABCs at a very early age. I started reading when I was three & haven't stopped since!

I remember devouring The Boxcar Children & Nancy Drew when I was younger & then being blown away by my first adult-ish book, Ender's Game. Some of my more recent favorites are The Hunger Games trilogy, The Forgotten Garden, A Thousand Splendid SunsThe Grapes of Wrath, The Maze Runner, & the Harry Potter & Vampire Academy series. I like a decent variety of books, but my favorites tend to be dystopian, fantasy, paranormal, & historical fiction.

My aims for this blog are to post honest book reviews, participate in & create reading challenges, dive deeper into books with "Through the Pages" Thursday & apply books to everyday life with "Time Out" Tuesday, get involved with a couple memes each week to get to know more bloggers & find new books, have author interviews &/or guest posts, & have some of my own giveaways.

I look forward to getting to know more people through blogging! Feel free to leave a comment & introduce yourself!
