...Okay.  That was my bio off of Amazon.  Kinda stuffy, right?  Well, here is all you need to know about me...I'm a cat person, I've never met a vampire I didn't like, and I read around two hundred books a year.  I'll consider most genres for review, but my time is tight, so patience is appreciated.

Lindsey Anderson aka @Hildasmom
Blog Coordinator

Hola- I am a obsessed reader who LIVES to read... unfortunately, I work a day job as I have to to pay for wretched select cult for 3 darling children. Someday it would be fantastic to make my obsessive hobby a job...working on it. Some even say I read so much, I tend to ignore them (Fire Husband - St. Todd aka NON READER).  If you have a book to share, let me know. I welcome new authors who just want to test the waters...enjoy:)

Izzy Evans aka @IzzyEvans279

My name is Izzy. I am eighteen, and I attend night school to catch up on my credits. I love writing, reading and crime shows. ;D  I live in Chicago, but want to move back to Tennessee, where I lived for most of my childhood. I also hope to study anthropology in college.  My favorite books to read are fantasy, sci-fi, action, adventure, romance...Veronica Roth, Kim Harrington, Iris Johanson [^^"], James Patterson, Nora Roberts, Kelley Armstrong, Cassandra Clare, etc.

Miranda Lynn aka @MyEclecticBook

She loves reading all kinds, but especially any type of romance, thriller/suspense/mystery, and Paranormal. She is a SAHM to two wonderful boys, military wife and owner of the My Eclectic Bookshelf blog. Her ideal day would be when the maid comes in to do her cleaning magic (yup this is her dream day all, so don't laugh) a pot full of coffee all day long and the ability to escape reality into all the books that await her on her bookshelf and Nookshelf. Catch her on twitter, simply look up @MyEclecticBook and find her chatting away on her Facebook Fan Page.
