About Me

My name is Lori and I am a serious book lover!  I'll read just about anything that can grab and hold my attention with in the first 3 chapters... I have a major soft spot for Bad Boys and Total Alpha Males!  I love contemporary romance but also like a good PNR every now and then... the hotter the better.  I've named my kindle. It's actually named after my all time favorite fictional character... his name is Electronic Luke or E. Luke or sometimes just Luke.. and yes I've heard all the comments about the name but if you've got something good feel free to comment ;)

I'm happily married to a man who supports my reading habit but doesn't necessarily understand it (especially when I'm cracking up like a crazy woman at 2a.m.).  He's my rock, my best friend, and loves nothing more than to tease me... we both seem to suffer from extreme sarcastic humor.  

I'm a Mom to  amazing kids who are my full time job and like to keep me busy.  My kiddos have the best sense of humor... they are always cracking me up!  We love to have dance parties and we have them often! They love reading almost as much as I do, which I just LOVE but I have to admit if I have to read The Fart Book (That includes noises for each fart) to my 6 year old one more time.... I'll scream!

I'm a scrapbooker who is so far behind on my scrapbooks I don't know that I'll ever catch up unless I put down the books for a while, which I'm finding is quite difficult to do.  I love crafting... discovering Pinterest almost 2 years ago has become a bit dangerous. I've made so many amazing things, organized the crap out of my house, and have made and given some awesome gifts.  Y'all should see my Pinterest Fails though... or maybe not, I'm not sure that it would be appropriate to post what I actually say when things don't turn out the way I expect.

My friends mean the world to me... especially my book girls because they get me on a level that most people don't.  I can crush on a fictional character or even get possessive (I'm more of a sharing type though) and they don't think I'm nuts.  These girls help me keep it together when I read an emotionally draining book or when a character pisses me off.  They refuse to give me spoilers even when I beg for them and tell them that spoilers don't affect me..... and most of all they're absolutely beautiful women who, even though they live all over the world, have come to mean the world to me.

I'm always interested in finding new books to read and would love any suggestions you may have so feel free to send a message with your recommendations!
