I know most of you come to book blogs for the great reviews, giveaways, fun content and to learn more about new & upcoming books, ect. (I do the same)
Have you ever wondered who is the person behind the blog? I have always been kind of shy. I worry what people will think of me. I find it is hard to get to know someone by a short bio or just chatting online. So today I would love to share with you my readers and friends who I am. Yes, I blog, read, and chat with other book blogger or authors but I find myself wanted other to know the REAL me.
To start out I will share with you a recent image of myself.

Why do I read: To escape the real world and the problems in it. I have always loved to read and love being open with what I read. A good book is like a good friend; it can make you laugh, cry and or find happiness.
Why Book blogging? Why not. I wanted to be able to chat about books, share my love for them and find new ones I may love. Meeting amazing authors, and working with publishers to help promote sale. Book blogging is not my job, but my pleasure.
Thank you to anyone who read this post. I know it is not really the sort of thing you see on a book blog but I just figured it is about time I let YOU all know who I am. My readers (yeah, you!) are the reason I blog!
