Welcome to my blog, A Writer's Review!  I'm just a typical twenty-something girl trying to live each day to the fullest.  I'm an avid reader, and always have been.  I've taken a few sabbaticals here and there from reading (mostly due to boring required reading in school), but now I'm back at it!  
I've always had a love for books -- the way they smell, the smoothness of the jackets and the ability to get lost for hours.  My mom always tells me that when I was younger I used to have all kinds of books on tape and I would listen to them over and over again while "reading" the book until I was actually able to read the book.  My favorite bedtime stories were Goodnight, Moon and Mickey and the Beanstalk.  I can still hear my mom and I yelling "Fe Fi Fo FUMMY!".

All About Me

Anyway, now days you won't find me with out a book.  I actually will no longer buy a purse if I can't fit my Kindle or a book inside.  I've always told people that I wish there was some way that I could get paid for reading all day, and I hope to find that dream job somewhere, someday.  For now, I will keep my office job and read during my free time.

I started up this blog in January of 2010 as a way to keep track of the books that I read, and my own little reviews.  I didn't realize that book blogging was so big.  Things got busy at work and I kind of left the blog on the back burner, but kept reading.  In September I decided that not only did I want to post reviews of books that I enjoyed reading, but I also wanted to share my love of books with others.  That is when I realized how many book bloggers there were!  I am so happy that I've decided to come back to this community of avid readers.  It gives me a great way to find new books to read, and to share my passion with everyone else.

I am still pretty new to the blogging world, so I am learning a lot as I go.  I've made some great blog-buddies so far, that have also taught me a ton of tips/tricks!  

I do have other interests aside from reading.  I love all things art!  I've been painting with acrylics for about two years and I love it.  It is such a great way to express myself -- and I get to decorate the house while doing so!  I've been with my boyfriend for 7 years, and we have a wonderful puppy who is the love of my life!  She is the best reading buddy ever -- she will just curl up right next to me on the big chair and fall asleep while I read.  It is adorable. 

Unfortunately, not many of my friends are avid readers like myself, so it has been such a blast to meet different book bloggers and see that I'm not completely insane.  I do have a serious addiction to books (but it could be worse -- right?).  I will only allow myself to buy one book at a time if I go to the bookstore.  I have two bookshelves filled with books right now, but for some reason I can't leave the store without at least getting one more book.  I am also completely OCD when it comes to my books.  They each have their own spot, alphabetically by author on the bookshelf, and I can tell if you move them around.

I've been known to go up to strangers in public to find out what they are reading and if they like it.  I usually get some weird looks -- but just wait -- one day when I'm a famous book reviewer, I'll be the one giving the weird looks. *evil grin*

If you have any questions, just ask!  I'm extremely interested in recieving books for review -- if you would like me to review your book, please read my review policy, and then shoot me an email at brandiheathersreviews(at)gmail.com.

Happy Reading!
