Welcome to Back Off My Books. The title came about after several hours of non reading and thoughts of comments I would get from non readers (cough, my husband, cough)about just how much time I spend reading, and wouldn’t I rather be watching T.V.? The answer being sometimes, but 90% of the time I rather read and create my own world painted with an authors words. So I would glare at him and tell him to back off, thus “Back Off My Books” created.
About the Blog:
This is not a promotional blog. I do promote authors and books I love but that is not the sole purpose of this blog. I review books, discuss books, talk with authors, etc. This is my personal blog that focuses on books but I also talk about me too and that includes the happenings of my life and other interests (such as my jewelry). I choose how I will run this blog and will give my honest opinion on anything I feel the desire to.
The site was designed and coded by the amazing Nose Graze (Aka Ashley). I also utilize her plugin: Ultimate Book Blogger (or UBB for short) which helps me format my reviews quickly, cleanly and I would never go without it.
My name is Jenn and I am a 32-year-old wife and mother of two. I am book obsessed and the invention of the ereader and amazon 1-click have been feeding my addiction to the point of excess. I quite often suffer from book-induced insomnia. You know on job applications, or even medical questionnaires how one of the questions always seems to ask what your hobbies are? I always instantly put down reading and then struggled to find something to place next to it but seemed everytime to be at a lost for words. I am going to admit I felt odd that I had nothing else to put but not anymore. Within the past year and a half I have come to accept my love without shame because I discovered there lives this whole community of book obsessed people like me. I have been wanting to express my love of reading in some way and realized I could do it through a blog where I can review and discuss my passion in a constructive and creative outlet.
The types of books I am currently drawn to include:
- New Adult contemporary romance
- Adult Contemporary Romance
- Paranormal romance
- Urban fantasy
- Historical Fiction
- Psychological Thrillers
I love all types of books though and remember in middle school and high school I had quite the obsession with Micheal Crichton. Loved Dan Brown’s Lost Symbol and Harry Potter, Chronicles of Narnia and then there was R.L. Stein’s goosebumps.
See, eclectic taste in books. Why pigeon hole yourself to one genre when there are so many amazing stories to be had?
Other things of note: I have returned to college to finish my degree that I let go uncompleted over 8 years ago. This of course means less time to focus on my book passion but I am finding time none the less. I also became a merchandiser for Chloe + Isabel jewelry. My business card has a book and necklace on it. Kind of perfect I think 😉 If you want to check out that other side of me you can do so here:
