First off, my name is Cathy. I’ve been married to my high school sweetheart for 16 years and we have an awesome son and a beautiful daughter. While reading is my addiction, they are my heart and sole and complete my life in every way possible.
In late 2011 I waited what seemed like forever in a doctors office. After browsing my Facebook account and playing almost every game I had on my iphone, I downloaded a sample book and started reading. I’ll be honest, before that moment it had been years since I read anything that wasn’t a label, or a note sent home from my children’s school but something clicked and I haven’t stopped reading.
In the last 3 years, I’ve read over 1000 books. In 2012, I started leaving very short reviews about why I did or didn’t love a book. That opened up my world to other book addicts and I have never been the same. Reviewing, blogging, interacting with authors and fellow addicts completes my already wonderful life. People who don’t love books the way I do just don’t understand how or why I read so much. Having such a supportive online community has opened up my world in ways I never thought possible.
When my nose isn’t stuck in my kindle, I’m working, spending time with my family or friends, online reading reviews, or catching up with my online community. I would love to tell you I’m a classy girl that loves a great glass of wine when I read, but I’m not. I’m a total beer girl and after the kids are in bed, I’m usually enjoying a cold beer while reading.
Even though I’ve been happily married for 16 years I still get butterflies when I read an awesome book. Smutty or sweet, gay or straight, there is something powerful about a couple falling in love. I love hot steamy sex scenes but I still want a storyline to go along with the smut.
When choosing a book, the first thing I usually look for is an alpha male. There’s nothing hotter than a strong hero with a dirty mouth that’s willing to do anything to claim the person he wants.
