Hi Schmexy Friends!! My name is Jen and I am so flippin excited to be a Schmexy girl!!
When I was asked to join Schmexy Girl Book Blog—I was THRILLED!! We’ve all become fast friends and share our love for reading. They are AWESOMESAUCE and the sweetest ladies you could ever meet!!! To be able to share my love for books is a dream come true!
I have been a reader my whole life. I remember growing up and staying up all night with my nose stuck in a book. I stopped reading for a while…life got in the way—family, work, housework. Then one day I picked up 50 Shades of Grey and BAM, I was hooked. Not long after, I bought myself a Kindle and I was addicted!!! I have not stopped one clicking since!!!!! But there was one book that changed my life. Literally. On June 30, 2012, I read SLAMMED, and that was the end of me. That book, followed by all of Colleen’s books, has made me a reader for life!!!!! I read when I cook, blow dry my hair, during my lunch break…you name it! I’m even guilty of reading at the beach and coming up with a white neck having my head looking down at my kindle. My husband says he’s going to get me a Flavor Flav necklace to hook it onto!!!
Reading is my escape. I can read for hours and hours and it feels as if only minutes have passed. It’s as if I’m living the story and the events are really happening to me. I can be a lawyer, a nurse, a student, an exotic dancer, a baker, a waitress…and no one can tell me my book boyfriends aren’t real!!!! I have made so many new friends and wish that I can send all my favorite authors flowers because they’ve changed my life!!! I am an extremely EXCITED reader, and I can’t wait to share my excitement with all of you!!!
I am married to a great guy who has been my partner in crime for over 20 years. He is always by my side and makes me laugh. He is an amazing father and is my best friend. We have two daughters who I love more than anything in the world…they carry my heart with them wherever they go. I am so blessed and am grateful for them. They put up with me reading all the time and make me smile every day!!!
