Meet Amy and Her Crew...

Book lovers from Northern Virginia who share a passion of reading.  We love to talk and share the books that we’ve read.  So, here is a little about us:

Amy...I'm Italian, which means I'm loud, opinionated, passionate, and …. Did I say loud?  I like reading all paranormal, horror, and fantasy type books.  I spend my free time reading, writing reviews on my blog or on Goodreads, and watching some of my favorite shows like: Supernatural, Revenge, The Vampire Diaries, True Blood or The Office.  I read an average of 200 books a year, and still find time to be a wife and mother of three.  Some of my favorite authors are: Heather Hildenbrand, love her!, Angeline Kace, Dannika Dark, Patricia Briggs, Samatha Young, Charlaine Harris, Rachael Wade, and Nicole Harris just to name a few.  One day I would love to pursue a career that would allow me to read all the time.


 My name is Lauren and I am an avid reader of young adult paranormal romance novels.  Some, including my husband, may call it an addiction.  I have laughed, cried, cheered for and have shared the ups and downs with so many of the characters in these “YA” books even though I am well into my twenties and a mother.  I find myself completely wrapped up in their stories leaving little time for laundry or anything else for that matter.  When I am fully engrossed in reading a novel, only that pesky full time job will interfere with me making my way to that last chapter…that and my son of course…he is my preferred distraction however.  I can’t say no to a classic board game, a chance to build a fort, or the opportunity to use our imaginations and play a family favorite: Ultimate Superhero Showdown where we all battle to the death. 
There is something about this genre that I can’t escape; maybe it’s the magic or the other worldliness in them, the chance to be a part of something bigger than what our human existence has to offer.  Whatever it is, I can’t seem to get enough.  If you are reading this, then you too may suffer from this YA obsession and in that case I say to you, “Happy Reading”!  
On a side note, I'd like to take a moment and apologize for my absence. I will be writing more reviews now that I am staying at home. I have left my company of almost five years of employment and decided to SHAM it up with my Kindergartner. Our little family is growing, so this was a great time for me to take the opportunity to be home for everyone! We expect our newest addition to make his debut in November. I will continue to write reviews and will be more present here more now than ever before.
