My blog about life, books, painting, quotes and favorite authors. The picture is the lake that I live on which is so beautiful and which I am so grateful to be able to see every day. I love books, mostly in the genre of fantasy and every sub-genre under fantasy. I also enjoy good horror and psychological thrillers. Among some of my favorite authors, beginning in the fantasy realm would be Patrick Rothfuss, Brandon Sanderson, Brent Weeks, Mark Lawrence, Robert Jordan, Anthony Ryan, N.K. Jemisin, Robin Hobb and Glen Cook. This is to name a few. I enjoy the books of Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Peter Straub. Right now at the top of my list of favorite books is definitely The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss. These books were amazing and I am hoping that book three will be released in 2017.
I have nearly 2,000 books on my TBR list and at least another 100 in screenshots saved on my phone and iPad. I seem to add more every day. As I mentioned I love to paint and draw however not an accomplished artist by any means. I enjoy a variety of mediums, including oil on canvas, acrylic, some watercolor, colored pencils and markers. Occasionally I may post pictures of my work here on my blog.
I am a mother of four, ages ranging from 9 to 20. Two girls and two boys. I am married for the past soon to be 12 years. I have a full time job as a Land Use Specialist managing lands around hydroelectric plants for recreation. My second job of course if mothering and my third is a “professional reader”. 🙂
My intent of this blog is to accomplish several things that I enjoy. That is writing, reading, reviewing books and painting/sharing my work. Mostly though it will be about reading. I am eager to review ARC’s and provide reviews in exchange. I would love nothing more than to someday have my own library where every wall is covered with books. Reserving a corner for painting and art. A nice reading couch, a fire place and a Keurig so I can have my tea or coffee. A little kitty door would also be great as I really love my two cats. 🙂
