Tell us about your current book in 10 words.

A girl overcoming past pain by trying to accept love.

What are you reading right now?

Currently, I am reading another Evernight Author’s story, On the Ropes by Dania Voss. It’s sucking me in already and I am loving the main character Luke Stryker.

Do you have any bad book habits?

I tend to read the end prior to starting the story. I blame it on my dislike for surprises and feel like I have to know what’s going on at all times. It’s such type A behavior.

One book at a time or multiples?

Because the way I invest myself in books, I have to stick with one book at a time. That’s why I give so much credit to bloggers who read multiple at a time. You are rock stars!

When do you do most of your reading?

Being a middle school English teacher, most of my enjoyment reading is done in the summer months. However, that’s not to say I don’t read at all over the school year. I actually select a few class novels that I love to read with my students. Some staples are, The Outsiders, The Hunger Games Series, and Percy Jackson. I mean why not share my love of reading with my students?

Favorite place to read?

The beach is by far my most favorite place to read. Something about the smell of salt air and the sound of crashing waves that allows you to sink fully into book world.

Favorite genre?

My favorite genre is romance for sure, especially contemporary new adult. However, with my students, I love introducing them to the dystopian world, like Hunger Games and The Giver.

Favorite book to recommend?

My favorite adult romance series in S.C. Stephens’ Thoughtless, Effortless, and Reckless. I mean who doesn’t love a rock star bad boy? Kellen Kyle will forever be my greatest book boyfriend and hardest book boyfriend break-up!

Re-reader or not?

Absolutely! I only re-read if I find a book or series that I am totally in love with. It’s equivalent to that go-to movie you watch over and over again. I also have a hard time breaking up with characters I love.

What would make you not finish a book?

I have never not finished a book. Being an author myself I want to give the author the respect to finish her work of art. Even if I don’t enjoy it, I will find something beautiful about it.
