How did I even wind up with the name Pushy when I’m really such a sweet girl?
Long story, but suffice it to say for the most part
I’m more enthusiastic than overbearing.
So, a little about me…
My favorite books are almost all fiction.
I love a good story,
the kind that whisks me out of my own life
and brings me to a world where I can lose myself for a while.
I love YA, horror, mysteries, historical fiction
and romance (oh, how I LOVE romance)
especially historical romance…
especially (here’s where I USED to cringe) Regency Era historical romance.
I participate in NaNoWriMo every year,
even though it means I have to wake up at the obscene hour of
5 am to get any writing done!
(as an aside, this is why I will never publish a book:
because I may be able to sacrifice sleep to write, but never to edit!)
I have found that I adore reviewing books.
I love being introduced to authors, books and genres
that I might have passed up before.
I love getting to interact with authors about their books,
especially when I find that I love their characters at least as much
if not more than they do!
And I love hearing that my opinion on a book has swayed someone else to pick it up.
That just warms the cockles of my little, foxy heart!
So that’s me! And here are a few quotes that I adore and thought I’d share:
You don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture.
Just get people to stop reading them.
– Ray Bradbury
A room without books is like a body without a soul.
A book is a version of the world.
If you do not like it, ignore it; or offer your own version in return.
– Salman Rushdie
