A DANISH/BRIT and A BRIT/AUSSIE MEET THROUGH A LOVE OF READING

 

JENNY

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!

Love Jenny x

GITTE

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!!

Love Gitte x

 

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.

J&G xx

Between us we’ve reviewed hundreds of books and have a TBR list which should help you. Feel free to contact us if you need any info on a particular book. We’re always happy to help 😉

  6. Hi Annabel! Thank you so much for the support. We really do appreciate it. We’re just finding our feet in all this and plan to bring some interesting stuff to the blog!
    That warms my heart when I hear people say they loved books that we have recommended!
    Be sure to check out Gitte’s reviews and To Reads on Goodreads as well as we have quite a few books listed between us.
    Good to see you here 🙂

  7. Hello, ladies! I tried to find your goodreads accounts so that I can follow your reviews, however the link is to the main goodreads page, not your individual profiles. HELP! I’m a newly published writer and I am interested in following you. Would you mind emailing me the links at the email address below? Thank you! Best, Kahlen Aymes.

  8. Amanda

    Love your blog! I wanted to read a few of the books you guys have recommended such as “captive in the dark” and “star crossed” but I am having trouble finding them in the nook store, is this a common problem? If so will they eventually be released through the nook?

    • Hi Amanda. I will check with CJ and Kele Moon about Nook. I know Star Crossed is available at Loose ID – do they do Nook books through there? We will find out and let you know. We’ve heard this problem a lot with Nook owners. It must be frustrating 🙁

    Hey Jenny and Gitte
    I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful reviews and posts… and I totally agree with both of you about how reading fits into my life… 🙂 and the 3 books that started your obsession Jenny pretty much started mine as well…
    I have a KOBO and I really do not go anywhere with out it and steal any few mins I can to keep reading. Its great to have you wonderful ladies to give me (us) great rewievs and updates on what we should read and whats good. Thanks again and keep it up, have a great wonderful, beautiful day! xox Téa

    • Hi Tea! So good to hear from you. I know, those 3 books changed my reading life that’s for sure. How can you not become addicted to Kellan Kyle and Travis Maddox….

      We’re really enjoying interacting with everyone and discussing books and the awesome authors who brings us these gems and so happy you’re here to share it with us.

      We’ve put up a must read list and will have more going up over the next few days plus a couple of interviews etc, so stay tuned for more.,

    • Thanks Tea for your lovely words, so glad you are enjoying out reviews and posts! Thanks for being part of this with us! Gitte x

  10. That’s fantastic Tea. So glad we could help. I know when I started out researching I didn’t know where to start and GR came up with some great recommendations and the more friends you have on there the more recs that come up so it’s really good.
    100 books is a great target. Good luck with that. I was going really well but just haven’t had much reading time lately but will get onto that! It is hard when you have a full time job trying to fit in the the time though. I have the same problem.
    Thank you so much for visiting and can’t wait to hear about your reading progress. Jen xx 🙂

  11. HAHAHA! I named my kindle too – Leon. OMG I AM NOT THE ONLY WEIRD ONE!!! —-uh no offense I’m so excited its not just me.

  12. Stacy

    Jenny, I can relate to your story of rekindling a love for reading and Thoughtless and Effortless were two of the books that help get me back to reading! I have already benefitted from your wonderful book suggestions with Disastrous and look forward to many, many more. Thanks for making find a great book to read that much easier!

  13. Stephenie

    I had the same exact experience with those 3 books. I hadn’t read in a while, and they hooked me back in to reading. I love similar stories. So glad I found your blog!

  14. Leanne C

    I just finished Thoughtless and Effortless after seeing them as recommended reads on my nook after I finished Beautiful Disaster. OMG!! Definitely 3 amazing books. I have read so many great books since I bought my Nook. I love finding all the new authors that I never would have found, and I am now super excited to see more that you two recommend. Happy Holidays to you both!!
