About me

Gender FEMALE
Introduction I’m one of the newest additions to the Winterhaven Blog. I’m so excited to join this fantastical group of reviewers. I’ve known them for years, and we’ve read dozens and dozens of books together, so joining Winterhaven as a fellow reviewer is pure excitement. This coming year and moving forward, as a reader/reviewer I’d like to put some focus on one of my passions, which is Australian literature both YA and adult. Some of my favorite books and authors come from this magical land of awesomeness. There’s just something about these books that have a way of constantly reminding me why I love to read. So, you’ll be seeing me spend a lot of time reading and promoting some of these Aussie books in the hopes of getting some buzz out there and ultimately getting easier access to them in the States. My reviewing and rating process is simple… (1) I keep it subjective. (2) It depends on my mood. (3) I have certain themes that resonate with me. However, one thing is constant… I always… always jump into a book with the hopes of falling in love with it.
