I think after a year, it’s time to get this bad boy updated!
For those of you that are new to my blog, I’m Jessica. I was very hesitant to start this blog because I figured that I might not keep up with it (I’ve always been awful with journals or anything similar) and that people probably wouldn’t have an interest in what I thought about these books. But, to hell with that, right?
A little bit about me – I’m in my 20’s and have always had a love for reading. Both of my parents are avid readers and I got my start pretty young. Stephen King hooked me at the ripe age of 10 (possibly 11) and I haven’t looked back. In elementary school I read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy and it just grew from there.
I went to St. Cloud State University and graduated with a triple major in my four years there. That is where I met my boyfriend (6 years ago already!) and we now manage his family’s business. It is an online company where we specialize in low and no sodium foods. We ship directly to the customer and we ship Internationally. I wear many hats here and have about 10 different job titles, but it’s easiest to just say I’m the General Manager.
We have two chocolate labs, Watson and Ellie. You’ll see some scattered posts about them on here. Watson is almost 5 and Ellie is almost 4 years old. They keep life fun and it amazes me how different their personalities are.
Another fun fact (maybe?) is that I have epilepsy. I was diagnosed almost 11 years ago (holy shit, that’s a long time) and I have been seizure free for almost 6 years. I had my first grand mal seizure in 9th grade before school started and after that I was having the little ones every 2 hours like clockwork. I had one in my MRI and the EEG, so we know that it’s in my left frontal lobe and that there isn’t really a cause for them (strobe lights, abrupt noises, etc). They had me go off my meds after 4 years with no issues or adjustments and I was off them for a month and then had 3 more little ones within an 8 hour time frame. Poor Jeremy, we had been dating a month and I started having them. He was awesome though, his mom and I are now on the same medication (what are the odds she and I both have this?).
Update: As of December 11th, 2018 we got engaged! The wedding planning is pretty much done and we are at the 7 month mark until the wedding (as of April 30th, 2019). Don’t you worry – there will definitely be books incorporated and I’m so anxious to share photos of what I already have (but I have to force myself to wait – maybe December 1st I’ll share some photos)
Well, I guess that’s a little bit more to know about me! I hope you enjoy my reviews and photos that I share on here. You’ll see mainly genres that I’m in love with (thrillers, horror, suspense, historical fiction) because it’s not entirely fair to review genres that I’m not the target audience for. You’ll see some book mail and then book events that I can make it to (living an hour and a half away from Minneapolis makes it a little difficult at times).
