A DANISH/BRIT and A BRIT/AUSSIE MEET THROUGH A LOVE OF READING
I’ve always loved reading. It has always been a part of my life. It was on a long weekend in June 2011 when, on a book researching blitz, I discovered three books that would turn reading into an addiction as well as a love.
The books were Thoughtless and Effortless by S C Stephens and Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire. I became so consumed by these books and the characters that I spent the whole weekend immersed in these stories and could not put them down.
The authors had written stories that spoke to me and touched me in a way nothing before them had. The experience I felt reading these books was something I knew I wanted to feel time and time again.
Since then I’ve been fortunate to have read some amazing books, expanded my reading genres and forged some great friendships through the world of books and every day I thank the wonderful authors for bringing their gift story telling in to my life.
There is nothing like blocking out the world and becoming so consumed and captivated with a story that you feel a part of it, you care about the characters and the times when these characters find a place in your heart…..well, that truly is something so special you wish every single person could experience it.
I never go anywhere without my Kindle and reading to me is not a hobby; it’s an important part of who I am and if you want to see a huge smile on my face, just ask me to discuss or recommend one of my favorite books! The smile will literally blind you!

I have loved reading since I was 5 years old.
I’ve always had a book in my hand no matter where I was. That is until last year when I got a kindle for my birthday. I can safely say it was the BEST present EVER!! I have since discovered some of the most amazing authors I would never have known about if it wasn’t for my Lawson (who yes is my kindle). I named him after a character by one of my favorite authors Kristen Ashley.
Depending on how busy my life gets I can read anything between 3 – 4 books a week. I don’t discriminate, I will literally read anything and everything as long as it has romance, angst or humor in it. I consider anything 3 + stars as a good book and a lot of the time 5 stars just isn’t enough.
I never compare books to others when rating them. I don’t review the books in the true definition of the word I mostly write about how I felt during and after finishing it. Authors are my Rock Stars…books are my life!!

Our friendship was forged from a love of books.
We maintain the same love and passion for reading as we did on the day we started blogging.
We are book soul mates through and through and spend hours every single day chatting about the books we read.
