I’m a 33 yr old, stay at home mom, to 4 wonderful children. I wanted to keep up with what my teen daughter and sister-in-law are reading, so I started reading YA Lit. I found out, I love YA Lit, especially fantasy/paranormal romance. I enjoyed reading/reviewing it so much, I decided to start a blog. You can email me at our main account firstname.lastname@example.org and find me on twitter @its_pixie.I also like to make blog designs - since I am just learning, I will work for donations to our blog or at cost (meaning free, unless I am charged for something you want...like a scrapbook kit or vector image. If you are looking for a new design, email me. I helped designed Page Turners Blog (with Stacey) and Books Complete Me.
I'm a 30-something former book seller from Illinois. I have a Masters in Public Administration (my undergrad degree was in Political Science with a minor in History) and still trying to figure out what I want to be when i grow up. I enjoy reading all sorts of books, and have gotten in to YA with Harry Potter and Twilight and have enjoyed my further reading in the area with Hunger Games and Graceling. I'm excited for many of the new YA books that will be coming out this year and look forward to bringing them to you all. You can email me at Stacey@pageturnersblog.com and on our main twitter account @pageturnersblog.
These ladies review for us on a part time basis. Most of them have their own blog or review for another blog or goodreads/amazon. When we started PTB we wanted a diverse group of women and that is just what we got by adding this wonderful group of ladies.
I'm a mom, first and foremost, to 2 great kids, 12 & 14. I work full time as a 7th grade LA teacher and have for the last 20 years- I love 'em! My husband is on the road a lot, so I sometimes get overwhelmed and books are my escape from reality. Hoping to one day publish my own book....
I was once a busy executive mommy, but now I'm a SAHM with three kids (and yes,two fluffy dogs). Very different worlds, each one with their own set of possibilities. I'm lucky to have
explored both sides. But all along, I've been a true bookworm. That hasn't changed. I adore reading YA fantasy, contemporary, urban fantasy and paranormal stories while idling in carpool lanes, waiting at cross-country/track meets, scouts meetings and dance classes.
My blatant biases include: a well written Hot Boy with a Sword, the very best of chick-lit, quirky contemp characters and anything that can fit the label 31 Flavors of Mr. Darcy. I am on both twitter and goodreads.
I'm a grown up Army brat who has moved 19 times which means I'm from nowhere and from all over. I grew up outside riding my bike, inside reading books, and far, far away in my imagination. I was never bored as a child because I always had books to keep me dreaming. My love for literature became my focus in college, and I have a BA with a double major in English and History, and MA in English, and finished it out with a Masters in Library Science.
I eventually stopped moving when I got a job as a librarian almost six years ago. I am currently a Reference and Young Adult Librarian, and this job suits my love of teen literature and the thrill I get helping a teen find just what he or she is looking for perfectly!
To remind myself I am an adult, I put down the books and hang out with family and friends, especially my dinner club girls who never let a good sombrero picture opportunity pass them by! If you want to find me, here I am: Goodreads / Twitter.
My name is Michele and I'm, *ahem*, 43, mother of three who works full time. I fell in love with YA when I started to read Harry Potter with my son years ago. I love to read YA, Paranormal, Dystopia, and anything else that will take me away from real life for just a little while. I like to call my book collection my Personal Library, and I'm very proud of it. My highlite last year was meeting Lauren Oliver at a book signing. I am not ashamed to say I had a total fangirl moment!! And I also got to meet Stacey from Page Turners in person!! You can find me on Twitter & Goodreads.
I'm a 23 year-old graduate of the University of Central Florida with a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing-- which I majored in for the simple reason that I hated studying pretty much everything else. I rediscovered my love for YA lit after graduating college, going out into the great wide world of job searches and bills, and looking for an escape. I'll read almost any YA genre, especially contemporary, dystopia, fairy tale retellings, fantasy, romance, science fiction and steampunk, but I believe in happily ever afters. I'm currently working on my first novel, tentatively titled "Now and Again" and am also busy plotting a YA fantasy novel.
I'm also a social media junkie and have way too many accounts in way too many places. Here are some of them: Blog: Almost Grown Up - Twitter - Facebook - Goodreads - NaNoWriMo - E-mail.
I'm a twenty-something who's happiest when curled up with a good book. When I was little, I'd sneak in reading time like most kids sneak candy. Now that I'm older, I still sneak reading time...and I don't mind a chocolate or two with a good book! I still want to grow up to work with something book-related so I can make people love reading as much as I do. There's nothing better than falling in love with a book and being able to share and discuss it with other readers. I'm also a music fanatic, and love when the reading and music worlds collide.
Some of my current favorite books are: Wolves of Mercy Falls series, Anna & the French Kiss, Wither, and Wake.

Reading or watching movies? Decision we have to make ! Seriously, I am a full time engineer, working Mom and wife. I have blogged about film and books and love to continue those conversations. I love all forms of writing from poetry to screenplays, fiction and non-fiction. I remain in awe of the creative process as bringing anything to completion requires courage, and always appreciate a good recommendation for a book or movie, regardless of genre.
