These ‘about me’ sections, or even sections that inform you about blogs, have never been my forte. Much to my chagrin, I was never taught the unwritten rules of what you are supposed to say. The links at the side of the blog – Twitter and Goodreads, for example – are liable to tell you more than I could ever say in words.
Mostly, this will be a book blog. I read a lot, and I love to share my views on my most recent reads. I try to read a little bit of everything, but if you look closely you’ll notice I will occasionally become obsessed with one specific genre for a short period of time. Old books, new books, yet to be released books – I read them all. If you’re an author looking for advance readers or just wish for more reviews of a book you’ve already released, please feel free to contact me. There is a contact form at the side of my blog – if you scroll down below the Twitter and Goodreads sidebar you will find it – so drop me a message and I’ll be sure to get back to you in double time. After all, finding new authors is what makes the book world go around.
Thanks for taking your time to read this. With a little bit of luck, you will find my blog much more interesting than this mundane introductory section.

Review: Camp Crush
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I have read quite a few Tammy Andresen novels over the last couple of years, and I’ve had so much fun with all of them. Until grabbing Camp Crush, however, all my Tammy Andresen novels had been of a single genre – historical romance. For some time, I’ve been interested in Tammy Andresen’s other work, meaning I was more than willing to dive into Camp Crush when the chance came about.
Upon finishing Camp Crush I was left with one run-on sentence of a thought: oh my gosh, this was such an adorable read, and I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book, as I’m sure this series is going to be all kinds of bubbly sweet and overly cute.
Needless to say, my introduction to Tammy Andresen’s young adult contemporary work has left me with similar feelings to Tammy Andresen’s historical romance. In other words, I will certainly be reading more of this genre from Tammy Andresen.
As the first book in the Accidental Kisses series, Camp Crush is a wonderful set up to what is to come. We’re introduced to the setting, we get to meet the characters, and there is so much sweetness thrown in that I fear I may need to visit the dentist to ensure I’m without cavities.
I will be honest and admit to being nervous before diving into this one. The historical romance novels I have read from Tammy Andresen all fall under the label of bodice rippers, leaving me unsure as to how a young adult novel from the author would play out. Despite the nervousness, I was excited. This excitement grew throughout, as Tammy Andresen demonstrated she is more than capable of writing for different audiences.
Honestly, this one was a super cute read. It has all the sweetness you could hope for in a quick young adult romance, with plenty of emotion keeping you hooked to the pages and characters that will leave you wanting more of the stories.
I cannot wait to read more of the Accidental Kisses series!
