My name is Jessica and I live in Georgia. I am married and we have two precious cat furbabies named Sage and Curry. They were adopted from a local animal shelter.

I’ve been actively reading and keeping track of the books I have read since 2009. More recently I started writing reviews for Goodreads and Amazon. I wanted to expand that and the result is this website! The reviews posted are 100% my honest opinions.

I don’t read one particular genre. If I am interested in it I will read it, and I will read most genres.

My favorite author is Heather Gudenkauf. Other authors I highly enjoy are: Dan Brown, Stephen King, Mary Kay Andrews, Sophie Kinsella, Charlaine Harris, Gillian Flynn, Shandy Kurth, Robert Galbraith, and Michelle Onuorah.

Books are rated on a 5 star scale:

1 star- I did not like the book
2 stars- It was ok/ it wasn’t terrible
3 stars- It was good/ I liked it
4 stars- I really liked it
5 stars- I loved the book and was blown away/it was amazing

**Most books tend to get a four star rating from me. I don’t often give a five star rating; when I do it is well deserved. Rarer still is a one or two star rating.

I am also a NetGalley Member.

About Kim:

Kim is the Guest Reviewer for Jessica’s Reading Room:

My name is Kim and I live in Jacksonville, NC. My husband is a Physician Assistant and we have a sweet kitty cat, named Joad Christopher.

I’ve been reading my whole life, but it wasn’t until 2012 that I started taking reading seriously. I discovered Goodreads, I started keeping track of the books I’d read, and I listed out my current reads for my students that I was teaching at the time. I started picturing and reviewing my books on Instagram back in January, along with posting monthly book hauls. Not gonna lie, Instagram is my new favorite!

I read most genres within fiction, though I do throw in an occasional history book. I read mostly physical books, but I’m constantly listening to audiobooks whenever I’m in the car.

My favorite author of all time is John Steinbeck. I also love Mary Kay Andrews, Leigh Bardugo, Robert K. Massie, Susanna Kearsley, Ransom Riggs, Elizabeth Kostova, Robert Beatty, Jojo Moyes, JK Rowling, Madeleine Roux, Ruta Sepetys, and Robert Alexander. My non-fiction ususally runs toward Holocaust, WW2, and Russian history. I’m also a sucker for any book about asylums or psychiatric institutions.

I will admit that I stole this next part from Jessica, so hopefully she doesn’t mind! Books are rated on a 5 star scale:

1 star- I did not like the book
2 stars- It was ok/ it wasn’t terrible
3 stars- It was good/ I liked it
4 stars- I really liked it
5 stars- I loved the book and was blown away/it was amazing
