Wanda was born and raised and currently residing in The Bronx. as a little girl she's always been into reading and writing.  The books that hooked her as a child in 3rd Grade were "SuperFudge" and "Are you there GOD, it's me Margaret" Both by Judy Blume. As a young girl, she loved writing. Even book reports. She's written numerous poems and a few short stories.

Now as an adult her passion for reading and writing has consumed her and she just can't get enough. She reads books and reviews them in different genres, such as YA, Contemporary Romance, and now she is slowly getting into the Paranormal Genre.

Wanda now is a part-time worker and a full time mom to a handsome ten year old. She spends her time taking her son out and spending time with her family and friends. On her down time she reads and writes and blogs about books. Her dream is to become a published author one day.

Amanda is a stay at home mom to two little munchkins. She is currently living in the Midwest with her fingers crossed in hopes of dodging the tornadoes. When she isn't chasing the kiddos or sweating over the local weather, she can be found with her nose in a book, or fingers on the keyboard. She could be considered obsessed with music, but very few artists catch her eye. 

She's an aspiring writer who can't even begin to understand her own fascination with zombies. On good days she writes about them, on other days, she leaves it up to the pros.

Casey is a poor housekeeper with nothing better to do with her spare time than read, which is her favorite thing to do, so she doesn't mind. She’s still in her 20’s, barely, but barely counts as far as she’s concerned. When she isn't reading, she’s cleaning up after her boyfriend, two dogs, and pot bellied pig, dancing and singing to whatever Pandora has decided to play from her massive collection of stations...which she just so happens to keep on random. The fun is in the surprise! She’s not really particular, but very particular at the same time. She’s an aspiring lottery winner, and she’s hilarious, obviously.

Shelly lives in south Alabama where the summer heat is exhausting and sweet tea is the state drink. She’s always loved reading (just ask her parents). When she was younger, you would find her sitting on the floor of her bedroom or bookstore reading Fear Street books by R.L. Stine or the Boyfriend/Girlfriend series by Katherine Applegate and pretty much everything in between.

Now that she’s all grownup, she works full-time outside the home and has a harder time getting up from the floor. She’s also the wife to a handsome, stubborn husband and mom of two boys who love being outdoors (please see above mention of the summer heat).

She loves to read several different genres such as New Adult, Young Adult, Fantasy, Romance and Paranormal to name a few and is an avid Harry Potter fan. Her favorite book phrase is “rattle the stars” from Sarah J Maas’ Throne of Glass series. In fact, she loves it so much she has it tattooed on her arm.

Shelly always takes a book or e-reader with her wherever she goes so it’s unlikely you will ever see her without something to read. In addition to books, she loves music, shoes, nail polish and taking photos of books for her Instagram account (yes, it’s a thing).
