Hello readers! I’m Amy, photographer, wife, mother, and devoted reader.
Everyone has amazing stories about their introduction to reading and their significant experiences during or following. Mine however, was memorable, but sadly short lived. Perhaps, if I had titles to read such as Junie B. Jones, Pinkalicious, or Fancy Nancy the outcome may have been different. My favorite book series as a child was the silly housekeeper, Amelia Bedelia ( I highly recommend if you have young children) but as I grew older, the more unappealing reading became. Until Twilight. ( I know.)
Twilight was everywhere and everyone raved about it. Except me. The movie was released and I thought to myself. How. Dumb. A movie about vampires? Seriously. I was not impressed by the movie trailer (or Robert Pattinson for that matter. I know shocking right?) and did not have one urge to see it. One night as boredom defeated me, I began to search the Pay-per-View’s. Twilight was highlighted on my screen in bold letters, and I physically rolled my eyes at the screen as my inner goddess confirmed by shouting “Don’t do it!” Nonetheless, I really wanted to see what all the hype was about, and after convincing myself to spend the measly five dollars on such a ridiculous movie, I selected buy. The rest is history. The next day I went to my local library and checked out the series. I read for 5 days straight. My inner goddess has been MIA ever since and has left no forwarding address.
I would never have imagined myself falling in love with books and actually reading one cover to cover. Now, I am rarely seen without a book or E-reader in hand. For me, the most important aspect about reading, is being able to transport myself into another world, forgetting reality. Accomplish that, and it’s a success with me.
I hope you enjoy my reviews, and I look forward to hearing from you. Until then, happy reading!
*Note* After reading The Fifty Shades Of Grey trilogy, my inner goddess has returned, and I’m happy to report, she’s more pleased than ever.
