I’m a 33 year old, mom of two awesome boys who is married to my best friend. I am so outnumbered in my house that I gave up all hope for the TV remote (not that there is anything on) and instead went back to my first favorite downtime hobby, reading. I had forgotten how wonderful and engaging reading was. So after a year of practically devouring books left and right, I decided that I really wanted to take more time praising books I love than a simple review on Goodreads or Amazon.
I have always loved reading, but after my boys were born it got pushed to the back burner. It was hard to feel like I should take that time for myself. Well, I got over that! Now my boys are a bit older, and Dad is WAY cooler than Mom, so ta-da! Time for READING! I love lots of different types of books, but most have one thing in common, a good love story. I read YA, Paranormal Romance, New Adult, Suspense Romance, Erotica, and Dark Romance. You can always check my shelves on Goodreads for books I have read in 2014 or previous.
I am THE thrifty reader, and so I follow some really awesome bloggers that compile lists of FREE books on Amazon. I also enter LOTS of contests. I suggest you do the same. It’s a great way to not only get books, but find new authors, bloggers, and book friends. Many times these books are the first book in a series (or part of a series), I want to know, and let YOU know, if it’s worth reading and therefore being sucked into purchasing the rest of the series. So A Cup and A Book was born. I’ll warn you, I do not like to be negative (I ain’t no hater!) and I respect the risk that showing other people what you created truly is. I will not post a negative review. I WILL point out things I didn’t like, but I will not say, THIS BOOK SUCKS. That’s not cool. I do love to find new authors, so if you loved a book, let me know!!
Be warned: I have a potty mouth. And sometimes I purposefully refuse to use grammar. I can be a touch sarcastic.
