"Hello! My name is Natasha, I am 30 years old, and a mom to a toddler girl.
I am a Bookstagrammer, and book blogger. I will read anything from YA, Fantasy, paranromal, dystopian, to NA, romance, Rom-Coms and Contemporary and everything in between.
When I am not reading, I love to watch supernatural, and Disney movies- but my favorite is Nightmare Before Christmas and love superheroes- both Marvel and DC but Batman is my favorite.
Hey everyone. My name is Briana, and I’m 26. I’m also one of those dreaded Scorpios, though I’m not sure if that has anything to do with my reading preferences. Anyway, I’m a lifetime Californian who is an avid (obviously) reader since the fabled tales of Harry Potter stole my toddler heart back in 98/99. You can now find me reading more adult centered fairy tales or attempting to scrounge up the courage to write one of my own stories. When I’m not doing that, I am preoccupied with my many tv fixations such as the SuperWhoLock/anime/Disney/etc fandoms. Such a fascinating person, I know.
Hi I'm Katie! I'm 34 years old, I'm a mom to a monstrous 6 year old, and wife to the love of my life, oh and we have 1 fur baby! I have been a bookaholic my whole life. Reading is a passion of mine, that alot of people in my life just dont understand, lol. I am really just a trope whore, I love everything from YA, Paranormal, Angst, Dark. You name it I read it! I absolutely freaking love a**hole characters, they are my favorite, Vicious Spencer by far is my #1 book boyfriend!Owning paperbacks is my addiction!I'm also addicted to candy, however I'm very particular about it, I only buy bagged candy September through February, that's when it's the freshest!
Hi my name Cindy and I am well older...ha ha ha. I have traveled all over the world and lived in Alaska for a few years on a whim. Right now my life is quiet as I am caring for my father who has cancer. So, there is a lot of time to read and review for me right now. I love all romance books really. Romcom, sci-Fi, Fantasy, Angsty, Assholes......you name it! I don’t really read YA.
Hey peeps!!! My name is Lisa! I’m a momma of 7 babies. I love to read and love to blog. If I’m not doing any of that, I’m working my full time job. I love to read different genres. Enjoy!!! 🙂 .
Hi all! My name is Yericka (pronounced Jeh-ri-kuh), I'm the mother of one beautiful spoiled rotten little girl. I'm currently a child care provider/SAHM, newbie blogger at One Click Romance (A Book Blog), reviewer and author J Thompson's PA. Reading has always been my passion but joining the indie book community, as a reader, has been amazing! Some of my favorite indie authors are: J Thompson, Melody Dawn, Kym Grosso, Belle Brooks, Aimee Noalane, Micalea Smeltzer, and so many others, I could be here all day just naming authors. The same could be said of genres, though if you give me romance I'm all for it.

I started my blog to help Indie Author’s get their books seen and things just took off from there, that was in 2015 and I have loved every bit of it so far . I absolutely love promoting Authors and sharing all the different things happening with them. http://dawn84blog.wordpress.com
What started out as a simple book blog where I would share new releases and reviews slowly grew into so much more and gave me escape just as much as my books did 💖

I'm Tawnya. I have been an avid reader all my life. I started reading Harlequin Romance at 10 years old (I know, don’t judge me, haha). The last couple of years I have turned into a voracious reader, inspired by all the new indie authors and the amazing books available. I have been with the man of my dreams for 28 years and three grown children later, he still makes my heart race and my knees buckle. I am lucky to have someone that supports my obsessive reading. I will say the subject matter tends to be a win-win for my husband (wink wink). I am blessed to work (By Day) as an Early Intervention Teacher. I serve families that have infants/toddlers with special needs. I hope this is viewed as my superpower. I am honored to walk beside families often during great times of transition and it is my desire to support them with an open heart and listening ear. (By Night) My good friend/partner-in-crime and I have taken on a new role. We are crazy and decided to become bloggers which gave fruition to Cali Gals Book Boyfriends. This is a passion project and a way to do something enjoyable, filling our own bucket. My ambition is to share ALL the wonderful stories and amazing authors in a way that spotlights the awesome new world of all things books. My motto "Happy Reading Everyone”.
Hey I’m Jackie! I'm an army wife and a proud mama of an amazing lil man! I currently am living in Alaska but moving to Missouri later this year! I'm a SAHM and when I'm not chasing my crazy lil man around I'm reading every chance I get. I absolutely love to read. Some of my favorite authors are K Webster, CL Matthews, Meagan Brandy, Cat Mason, Kennedy Fox and many many more! I'm always up for reading something new and have a very open mind when it comes to reading.
Hi, I'm Colette or Letty in the book world. I'm a mom, a wife, a part time virtual assistant to an author. I'm also technically a blogger that rarely blogs. I read every genre from classic literature to schmexy, trashy novels. In romance, my favorite is angst filled with a broody jerk or a rip your heart out drama fest that has a happily ever after but must still include a broody jerk. I like broody jerks!
Hi I'm Nancy and have been an avid reader since I was young. I am 57 and believe that age is just a number! I have been married to my wonderful husband for almost 30 yrs and he still makes me laugh. I have 2 babies, girl 28 and boy 22. I love to read romance. Historical are my favorite but any kind will do. I also read mystery, dark and some para. I have so many favorite authors i couldn't begin to list them. Some of my one click authors are C.M. Owen, Sable Hunter, Tess Oliver and Shantel Tessier. There are so many more! I share my love of reading with my sister. We read and discuss them all the time. I love to hang out with my family and go camping. They all know that early morning and late evening is my reading tome and I will ignore them! I also love sports and concerts. I know how I frustrate my daughter when were tailgating or in between acts and I'm reading while everyone's texting!
I'm Krista. I'm a single mom to 4 teenagers (2 boys and twin girls). Reading is how I keep my sanity. I can usually read anywhere from 3-5 books a week. Sleep is over rated after all. Ha! I like to read psychological thrillers, murder mysteries, strong female leads, and books that rip your guts out. Thanks to Booksmack I'm girl crushing on several new authors.
Hey, hey!! My name is Krista and I'm married to a big boss man and I'm the mother of little boss man. I'm a stay-at-home mom so my little boss man is attached to my hip. My husband has finally accepted my book/reading Obsession and the fact that my face is almost always stuck in a book, haha. I like to load my kindle up and have recently gotten in to starting my paperback collection. Some of my favorite authors are Aimee Noalane, Abigail Davies, Danielle Dickson and Lisa Renee Jones. I read just about anything but am still fairly new to a lot, if that makes sense, haha. I like to think I have a great sense of humor and I'm almost always thinking with a dirty mind. Making me laugh wins my heart so you know I love making others laugh. I like to leave reviews on books based on how they make me feel and how those characters have left an impression on me. I just love to read so give them to me and I'll let you know how I get on! Also, I love to message the authors for many reasons!
My name is Katy. I am a young mum (25) of three children. I also have a step son. I work full time and the rest of my time is spent sorting out the monsters.
I love nothing more than sending the crap bags bed after after a non stop 15 hour day, with my feet up, a cuppa and my beloved kindle. I may aswell be married to it because it spends more time in my hands than my hubby ever has 😂. What can i say? I am a true bookwhore. Books are my passion and i love getting lost it one.
My name is Emma. I'm married to an awesome alpha man who likes to act like a few of my book boyfriends (you'll never find me complaining!) I am a blogger and the world's biggest bookworm. I have many favourite author's including C.M Owens, S.M Shade, Kristen Proby, Kelly Elliot and Mia Sheridan. I love finding new authors and adding to my TBR!
My most favourite thing is coming home from work, putting my PJs on and getting lost in my books. You'll even find me at the busiest table in the lunch room at work with not a care in the world cos I'm swept away to another reality. I am extremely lucky to have met some amazing people through this book world, some of which I am honoured to call my friends ❤
Hey All! I'm a single mom of five beautiful girls ranging in age from 16 to 3 year old indentical twins. My life is busy and my heart and hands are always full. Reading is my passion, my escape, my next big adventure, and my bliss! I'm a total book whore and I read a variety of genres just depending on my mood, however romcoms and paranormal are probably my favorite. I can't name names when it comes to favorite authors, I have too many and we'd be here all day because I love them all for different reasons and I'd end up naming fifty...lol I have a sarcastic sense of humor, a lil pervy, dirty minded, and my favorite word begins with F. I'm a classic "bad mom", I freaking loved that movie and I think the main character and movie were modeled after my life...I'll be 41 this year and as long as I have my kids, books, coffee, wine, and my B.A.N.G. bitches, life is great and I'm happy!
