Classy Bits About Me
When did I start reviewing books?
2011 on Goodreads
When did I fall in love with books?
I've always loved to read stories as a kid, especially fairytales, but it wasn't until I read my 1st full length novel in 7th grade that I truly became a book addict!
What are my favorite classics?
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Who are my Favorite Classic and Contemporary Authors?
Classic is Jane Austen, and contemporary I have a few but I will try to narrow it down to my top three: Karen Marie Moning, Lisa Kleypas and Jeanine Frost
Which do I prefer: E-books, Paper, Hardcover, or Audio?
Definitely E-Books, paperback is sooo 2005.(haha) I'm not one of those people who say there is nothing like the feel of a real book. I travel a lot and I'm always on the go, so taking a ton of books along to add to my already overweight baggage just does not appeal to me. E-Readers are much more convenient, and the supply is endless and on demand. If I am traveling by car, then an Audio book is just the thing. It keeps me entertained and takes the tedium out of traveling for consecutive hours, especially when stuck in a traffic jam on the highway. However, my OCD compels me to not only have a hardback copy, but every format available of my all time favorites and classics, such as Pride and Prejudice, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, The Hobbit and several others.
Historical Romance, Paranormal Romance (love Vampires and time travel) Medieval History and I do love a good Biography. Houdini!!!: The Career of Ehrich Weiss by Kenneth Silverman was extremely fascinating.
Do I ever re-read books because they were "That Good"?
Definite YES. I read Jane Austen P&P once a year. I also have re-read more than once, Karen Marie Moning's Highlander and Fever series along with Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress and Night Prince series
Who is my favorite Hero and Heroine?
Jamie Fraser of The Outlander Series Why? Because he loves Claire almost to a fault!!! He always puts her well being and safety above his own!
Heroine is a toss up between Elizabeth Bennet and MacKayla Lane. Very different genres I know, but I love the strong spirit, pride and determination of both women.
Best Alpha Male?
Hands down Jericho Barrons of the Fever Series
Biggest Pet Peeve in books?
Stupid Women!!! Always whining about being treated as an equal, putting themselves in danger, and always pushing away the man they really want to be with because of society rules or some other ridiculous notion
Audio Books: Horrible accents and mixing accents between different characters
Audio Books: When the CD ends and the listener is not informed this is the end of ie. disk 1, please insert disk 2, instead the disk just loops back to the beginning of the disk. Not a catastrophic problem I know, but this is this biggest issue that I receive feedback about from other audio book listeners
What is my favorite series?
Classics: Lord of the Rings
Contemporary: I have a few: Highlander & Fever Series by Karen Moning, Night Huntress, by Jeaniene Frost, The Survivors' Club by Mary Balogh and last but not least The Hathaways by Lisa Kleypas
What era would I like to travel back in time to?
Probably the Renaissance or maybe Victorian England.
Which Supernatural talent would I like to have?
Definitely to be a Vampire, with the ability to see my reflection however!

Guilty Book Read:
50 Shades I hate to admit. I really loved this book. Sure Christian Grey was a bit of a "freak" but I enjoyed how he evolved and healed from this abused and stand-offish character, to become a very loving and emotionally involved Man! Plus it is sexy as all get out, IMO when a man loves a woman as much as he loved Ana!
