This post is intended to serve as a welcome or intro to me for those authors, publicists, bloggers, etc whom I met while at a BEA (Book Expo America) or the BEA Blogger Conference. This is a sticky post. Just scroll down to see new posts!
Just a little info about me: I’ve been blogging for four years now, reviewing books for approximately 13 years. My favorite genres include thriller, mystery, crime fiction, horror & contemporary fiction.
I’m a full-time working mom of two boys: John (12) and Justin (6). John is a “formerly” reluctant reader. Every once in a while John does a review of a book he’s particularly enjoyed as part of his Tales of a “Formerly” Reluctant Reader feature.
Following are a few of my posts/reviews so you can get a sampling of my reading tastes:
The Chaperone by Laura Moriarty
Overseas by Beatriz Williams
A Land More Kind Than Home by Wiley Cash
Edge of Dark Water by Joe R. Lansdale
Helsinki White by James Thompson
Defending Jacob by William Landay
Reliving Morrison: My Path Down Memory Lane
Tales of a (Formerly) Reluctant Reader: I Have Opinions
Blogiversary Special: Things I Wish I Knew As A New Blogger
Top Ten Reasons I May Block You on Twitter
Following are a few of the “features” popular here at Jenn’s Bookshelves:
- Frightful Friday-Each Friday I feature a book that I found particularly chilling or frightening (in a good way!)
- Tales of A Formerly Reluctant Reader-This is the feature I’m most proud of! My son, a formerly reluctant reader, reads and reviews middle-grade books. He specifically explains why the book engages him, as formerly reluctant reader.
- Murder, Monsters & Mayhem: I spend the entire month of October spotlighting some of my favorite horror/thriller books. It’s a month-long appreciation of things that go bump in the night, including guest posts, giveaways & more. Stay tuned for more details about this year’s celebration!
Well, I think that about sums it up! If you have any questions or would like to learn more about me, please do not hesitate to email me at jennsbookshelfATgmailDOTcom!
