I probably should introduce myself, huh? My name is Dorie and I’m 30 years old. I currently live in Pennsylvania, although I grew up in Maine and someday hope to move back (I miss it SO much – especially the ocean!). I’m happily married to an amazing guy, 10 years strong, and we have 3 beautiful children together.
All of my life, I’ve been an avid reader – your typical bookworm. I’ve navigated my life with my nose buried in a book and I enjoy a wide variety of genres: classics, biographies, horror, suspense/thriller, paranormal, science-fiction, historical fiction, mystery, and YA/NA. Really, the only genre I do not typically enjoy is romance novels, although I have found some exceptions to that rule.
I decided to start a blog when I realized just how badly I suffer from “book amnesia”. With the exception of some really good books/series, after a few months I struggle to remember details from the books I’ve read and sometimes I even forget the entire plot/storyline altogether! This is really a problem for me since I have a large collection of books and I haven’t always been great about tracking which ones I’ve read. There have been times when I would get about halfway into a book and realize I had already read it! Writing reviews helps me absorb more from the books I read and remember them for longer. I’ve decided to use this blog to keep track of all the books I read and my thoughts on them, although I might also throw in some other random book-related musings from time to time.
I’m fairly new to blogging so bear with me as I get this all set up and rolling. I spent today creating a new email account, social media accounts (I’m trying to keep my blog accounts separate from my personal social media accounts), and other various stuff needed to make a complete online profile. There’s a lot more to this blogging stuff than I thought! But I’m fairly confident I’ll get a good handle on it all soon. Click the follow button and watch as this page grows into the awesome blog I know it will be. In the meantime, I’ll gladly welcome any hints or tips you might have. I’m also open to feedback on how I should schedule my posts and what kinds of content you would like to see. Just comment below. 🙂
