Thank you for visiting Jessica’s Reading Room! Sit back, relax, and enjoy my website!!
If you know me then you know I am a big reader. I read a lot when I was younger, and I guess I stopped reading for enjoyment with school/college. Then one day my aunt gave me a copy of Can You Keep a Secret by Sophie Kinsella. And that started me back to reading!
I began keeping track of the books I was reading in 2009. There is a separate page on this website showing those books by year. I joined the Goodreads site in April of 2011. In the past couple of years I began writing reviews on some of the books I read on Goodreads and Amazon. In February of 2016, I became the third admin on the Bookies Facebook page. I assist the page by posting anything book related. Anything I post on the page ends with the tag JPJ so the “bookies” (fans) of the page know which admin has posted. I am also in charge of a weekly post called “Weekly Wonders”. Once a week, I will highlight and review a book of my choosing. In June of 2016, I became a NetGalley member. NetGalley is a site where if you meet certain requirements you can join the site and request ARCs (Advance Reader Copies) of books in exchange for reviews and promote new and upcoming books.
With all of that going on, I decided that I wanted to have my own website to post my reviews and occasionally other book related posts. And now we have this website!!! While the site is mainly for me, if others visit the website that will be great!!!
***I don’t read one particular genre. If I am interested in a book I will read it, and I will read most genres. My favorite author is Heather Gudenkauf.
The reviews on this site are 100% my opinion. I don’t set a word limit on my reviews.
This site will be a work in progress for a while as I go through Goodreads to post my past reviews on here. Once I catch up then posts will be reviews of the books I am currently reading and whatever else I can think of!
Any book summary posted on this site is provided by Amazon. Pictures of book covers are provided by Goodreads.
Thank you for visiting Jessica’s Reading Room. I hope you will come back!
