Celebrate: It’s Been FOUR Years!!!

OMG: Who would have thought that when I said to my husband “I want to start a book blog” that I would still be doing it! It feels like I have been doing it forever, but in a good way and this weekend is a HUGE deal: WE ARE TURING FOUR!

Almost all of my free time is dedicated to blogging and sharing the book love: BUT as long as I enjoy it, that is what matters!  I started my blog for me first and it may not be a blog with a huge following (which I am fine with ) I still do have people looking at what I think and this is great! It’s crazy to think that people actually read about what I have to say about books!

And we have Kim as well who brings her own flair to things.  She does her monthly video wrap ups, has a You Tube channel, and she also heads up the Most Gorgeous Cover contest on the Facebook page twice a year.

Here are the social media we are on:

Jessica’s Reading Room:
Twitter @JessReadingRoom
Facebook: It is a companion to this site and Kim and I use it as a way to get to know us more personally. If you have not given us a ‘like’ you should.  We have lots of fun things going on! We have just over 500 ‘likes’ and ‘follows’!

**Twitter is run by Jessica; Both Jessica and Kim post on the Facebook page. Jessica ends her posts with JPJ and Kim ends hers with KSF (When we remember… Sometimes we forget, we aren’t perfect!)

**FOR EVERYONE** GIVEAWAY!

Author Taryn Leigh’s upcoming novel The Secret Letters doesn’t come out until August 9, 2020, but she is wonderfully donating 4 KINDLE copies to giveaway. You WILL receive it before publication: Isn’t an advance copy wonderful??? And FOUR of you will get it!

Book Description:

RACHEL, saved from an attack twelve years before by a faceless stranger, never got to thank him, never knew his name.

Despite the devastation she chose to rise above it to help others from their pain by becoming a psychologist…. Her only issue now is that she’s an expert at fixing everyone else’s problems, and blind to her own.

After a long relationship with her boyfriend WILL starts to go south, she turns to her best friend AMELIA for guidance.

Suddenly her world is turned upside down when tragedy strikes and she’s left with no one to comfort her but Will’s rude older brother RUARI.

Paralyzed by fear, she struggles to take grip of her life, until the day when anonymous letters begin to appear from the stranger who saved her twelve years before.

**Once winners are selected, we will need your kindle email address. You will then need to add the author’s email to your approved sender list and the book will be sent directly to your kindle.**

It’s so hard to believe it has been 4 years. Let’s see what starting year 5 will bring! Good luck to everyone who enters the giveaways!

It’s Our Second ‘Blog-iversary’! We are TWO!

Today is a very big deal for Jessica’s Reading Room: We are TWO years old today!  It’s hard to believe that when I started this that I would still be doing it and having fun!  ALL my free time is dedicated to this: BUT as long as I enjoy it, that is what matters!  It’s all about the book love!!!! I started my blog for me first and it though may not be a blog with a huge following (which I am fine with ) I still do have people looking at what I do and this is great! It’s crazy to think that people actually read about what I have to say!

Kim has been a great co-reviewer and she has brought her own style to the site.  She does her monthly video summaries and occasionally other video reviews.  I like how we both read different genres, so we can cover a wider variety of books for you guys.  The “double reviews” can be great as you get usually two different opinions/viewpoints on the book read.

Here are the social media we are on:
