Well first of all WELCOME to The Reading Frenzy I hope you like what you see enough to come back and visit often.

Before we get to the fun stuff let me give you a little history behind me and how I came to blogging.
It all started in the winter of 2003 when I decided to quit smoking and decided to replace one bad habit with a good one. I was never much of a reader in my younger days, always resented teachers telling me what I had to read so I thought this would be a good time to do some reading of my own choice. A reader friend told me about a thriller she read that came out earlier in the year a little book called The Davinci Code. And as the cliché goes; the rest was history.
Then in 2005 history changed again when my husband was diagnosed with cancer and I couldnt face stories without happy endings hence my rabid addiction to the romance genre.

Now onto the fun facts about me


MY BLOG IS 4 GOING ON 5
I know right Its pretty cool and Im proud of it!!!







I LOVE TO REVIEW BUST
If I happen to see a negative editorial review of an author I read Ill contact the author directly or their publicist and ask for a copy read it and REVIEW BUST IT!










 I'm a Facebook 

 I spend waaayyyy too much time there, usually while working shhhhh J
on my own timeline, the 2 pages I manage, and all the groups, events and friends pages too  and of course its where I play all my CASINO GAMES




All the HTML and other blog design stuff still scares me.



And last but never least


I LOVE GETTING NEW FOLLOWERS 

AND FANS

  1. This is so cute!! I used to be a facebook floozy too but now I'm a Pinterest floozy!! HA!

    I can totally understand your need to have happy endings. Sad endings just seem to such out your soul! I recently finished a book where I thought the main character was going to die... The author did a brilliant job leading up to it and I was crying all over everything. It was ridiculous! I was so thankful it had a good ending. I was not prepared for anything short of!

    Great to meet you! New follower! If you want to check out my lil social hop it's at: Creating Serenity

  2. I'm on Facebook like crazy during the day, but my husband thinks I'm on FB for fun. I'm actually on FB to network with new authors/bloggers, and connect with old friends every once in a while. I'm trying to learn G+ because a lot of my family are heading over to G+ because they are tired of dealing with FB's crazy tactics. LOL

    I despise HTML too. I may be a computer geek, but I still fear messing with HTML. I do mess with it every once in a while, but it still is something I need to learn more of. My husband wants to learn the ins and outs of of HTML, so I'll let him teach me and I'll stick with building computers, protecting them, and maintaining them.

    It's great to meet you. New follower. - Book Lovin' Mamas =)

    1. Hi BLMMs, I know what you mean about being on FB to network I do too, and I do get tired of their antics but really they are the ONE place to go and meet new peeps and stay in touch w/old friends. I'm following you too!

  4. That is the main reason I like romance as well. I want the HEA, HFN something. I always tell naysayers for the genre that romance has something for everyone you just get a nice ending.

    1. YES even if it's predictable from the get go. Sometimes you just need that HEA
      Thanks for the comment

  5. Hi Debbie,
    Congrats on your switch from smoking to reading. Hugs about your reason for moving to HEAs. Have to admit that I never read anyone else's review before I write mine. Then I'm totally surprised when I go and post my review on Goodreads and Amazon and read the other reactions - positive and negative. I call myself a contrarian as I don't always go with the majority... and would guess that's what your review busts do too.
    Cheers!

  9. I am a wanna be blogger ( I do have one) but do not use it at all lately. I needed a passion to share. Maybe I should start a book blog because that is where I tend to spend time as well. I am a new follower to you, it will be fun to read your reviews and such.

  11. Oh my gosh. I am so with you about reading when younger! I hated being told when I had to read what too! It's not until maybe 5 years ago I started reading again and enjoying it and making up for all that lost time :D

    Html has been the bane of my existence this week. I so have a love hate thing going with it.

  14. Congratulations on almost five years of blogging. I'm working on my second year (not quite there yet) and have so much yet to learn. I have no clue yet about HTML coding, so you're light years ahead of me.
