Hey guys! Thank you for taking time to stop by my blog. I totally appreciate each and every visitor I get. I haven’t done a “meet the blogger” post since I started my blog back in November and I felt inspired to do one now.
Unfortunately, I’ve been slacking on my blog over the last few months. I’ve just had a lot of things going on in my personal life that has prevented me from dedicating time to reading & writing posts. I’m finally at a point where I can get back into the groove of things, so be looking for more posts to come soon!
Let’s get started…
Who is She is Fond of Books?
My name is Jessica, but most people call me Jess or Jessie. I live in TN where I was born & raised.
I am an aunt to a beautiful & sassy niece, Miracle. She means the world to me!
I’m a doggie mom to my little monster, Jude. Don’t let his sweet appearance fool you…he’s a little wild 😉 But I wouldn’t have it any other way. I adopted him back in February and he has changed my life for the better in so many ways!
I am an insurance agent and have been for 14 years. One day I would love to be a full time blogger and own my own book touring agency…#goals
I LOVE Barberitos! It’s my favorite place to eat! Spinach burrito with beef, black beans & rice with a pinch of hot sauce and guac…HEAVEN! YUMMMMY.
Family is EVERYTHING to me. I was fortunate to grow up close to my grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. When I’m not reading, blogging, or playing with my pup, I’m probably spending time with my family.
My favorite genre’s to read are thrillers and dark romances. There are so many amazing authors out there, but I would have to say Blake Pierce is my favorite thriller author and Pepper Winters is my favorite dark romance author. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Riley Paige Mystery Series by Blake Pierce and I am OBSESSED with the Dollar Series by Pepper Winters! I highly recommend these books!
I am an introvert. If I’m not with my family or the few close friends that I have, I am most likely at home or out somewhere by myself or with my doggie. I’m the type of person who needs my alone time to survive.
My hobbies are reading (obviously), hiking with Jude, binge watching Netflix and Hulu, doing word searches…old school style, blogging, and interacting with my book friends on social media.
I didn’t always have red hair. After a breakup a couple years ago, I decided to do something bold and dyed my light brown hair to red…and I love it! I don’t think I’ll ever go back to my natural color.
Why did I start my blog?
Reading has been my passion since I was a kid. I can’t think of a time where I didn’t have books all around me. I love getting lost and escaping in them. It’s a nice break from reality.
I had wanted to be a book blogger for a while, but I was too afraid to give it a shot, until last November. I told myself I’d give it a try and see what happens. I’m so glad I did! I have met so many amazing book friends and authors. I couldn’t imagine not having my blog at this point.
Spreading my love of books is the #1 reason behind starting She is Fond of Books. I love to share books that I have read and enjoyed and I also love helping indie authors promote their books. Honestly, indie authors are my favorite!
Feel free to comment and tell me a little about yourself too! What kind of books do you like, favorite authors…?
Thank you for taking your time to read my post!
