I am a stay at home caretaker for my combat wounded veteran and work as an event coordinator/website manager for Candi Kane PR !! I’m also a mother to both a college junior and a high school junior.
I have always loved reading and writing. Growing up I wanted to be an author or a journalist but life had different plans and I started a family instead of a career.
I only averaged 3-4 books a year in the past before I discovered ebooks. I first began my affair with e-books when I downloaded Slammed by Colleen Hoover (to this day it’s one of my top ten favorite books) to the Kindle App on my iPhone. Then, in May 2012 a friend convinced me to read Fifty Shades of Grey. I finished in 24 hours and immediately went out and bought all 3 books for myself. I finished them all in 4 days total. When I finished I couldn’t get over how they made me feel and so I set out in search of another book to give me the same feeling. That is where I found Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire, then The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski and Hopeless by Colleen Hoover… and OH MY GOD! I was in love with reading again.
From there, things only got worse (or better depending on your view. Ha!). I couldn’t stop one-clicking and soon I was reading at least a book a day. I found myself wanting to run and share each and every book with my friends. Unfortunately most of them aren’t as avid readers as myself. Then I discovered Goodreads through Facebook and started keeping track of my reads there and that’s how I discovered this amazing network of book lovers and bloggers.
This is why I decided at the beginning of July, 2013 to start my own blog. I want to be able to share my love of reading with those who love it in the same way. I’m so excited to share it with you all!!
I have a Kindle Fire now, so you don’t have to worry about me losing my eyesight reading on my iPhone. Though sometimes I still read on it too. 🙂
Hi. My name is Dena. I have 2 kids, a husband and a boring full-time job. I love to read because it helps me ‘run away’ from my everyday life. I’ve been reading for years but I really started enjoying books ever since 50 Shades of Grey and Crossfire series released. Since then, I haven’t been able to stop reading. I love smut, the sexier the better. While I’m not reading, I’m taking care of my wild kids. I do sneak my reading in anywhere I can, I absolutely love my technology! My husband laughs at me because I can’t go anywhere without my phone, laptop, and kindle. I’m silly and I love to have fun! Life is too short, I’m all about enjoying my family, friends and SMUT!
