Welcome to The Book Hookup!
We’re five avid and passionate readers spread out all over North America who share an obsession for reading. We’re “those people” who bring our books and e-readers with us everywhere we go. We stay up late reading for… just a few more minutes, and pay for it the next day. We not only love to read books, we love to talk about them as well. What really compelled us to start the Book Hookup is the recent rush of amazing indie books that seem like undiscovered gems just waiting to be shared. Our mission is to bring focus to writers that might otherwise be overlooked. We hope our reviews will expose you to books that don’t bear a power-house publishers name but whole heartily deserve the same admiration.
We’ll discuss our favorite books, authors, quotes. We’ll give you recommendations and tell you the good, the bad, the in between and what to read next . We’ll have polls, reviews and a few surprises. We want you to talk to us too. Tell us what and who you love, what you can’t wait to read, and, yes, even what you flounced on. We love all kinds of books, both indie and mainstream, and all kinds of genres. Join us as we celebrate the world of books. We want to book hook you up.
Eat, Breathe, Read!
Hi there! I live near Boston on the south shore of Massachusetts and am a New Englander at heart. My biggest love is my family ~ I’m a wife and mom to 2 girls…and 2 doggies. I’m a strict vegetarian myself but can actually cook meat and get rave reviews. In my down time I love, love, love to read and my kids always say that the kindle was the best gift I have ever gotten.
Reading makes me happy and I’m proud to say that I am on a mission to get all my friends and family to love books as much as I do. Reading has been part of my life for as long as I can remember…a book is a great companion for a shy kid with a vivid imagination! I love all types of books, both fiction and non-fiction, but I do have a special place in my heart for any book that can take me away from real life and throw me head-first into an angsty romance or a fairytale setting (I blame the girly-girl in me)! I like my books descriptive and I prefer a slow burn…don’t give me everything up front, make me work for it. My favorite leading men are just a little bit cocky and my leading ladies, sassy! Be forewarned that I do have a tendency to fall in love with characters if they’re vivid enough and may even sometimes talk about them as if they’re real! To me, having a “to-read” list that’s way to long to get through is a really good thing! And, finally, I’m still looking for a way to make a living by read all day long…let me know if you can help!!
Hiya, Christina here! I’m a Southern girl through and through, born and raised in northern Mississippi. I love my sweet tea, flip flops, cooking, football, and most importantly, books. My friends would tell you that I’m enthusiastic about life, find humor in everything, and can air-guitar like nobody’s business. I would tell you they left out my penchant for random dance parties, documentaries, and snark. When I’m not commanding the troops- my two boys and husband- I can be found curled up on my porch swing with my nose buried in a novel. It’s the only refuge I have away from gaming and constant boy noises, a sanctuary where I’m allowed to be 100% girl- squee’ing, flailing, and swooning like the spazz that I am. From a very early age, I fell in love with words, and their ability to create worlds and evoke such a wide range of emotions. There’s nothing more amazing than getting completely immersed in a new place or universe, meeting new characters, and falling in love over and over again.
I’d say I’ve found a cozy niche in the Bookiverse. I love YA that’s geared more toward adult than young. I have an extreme obsession with dystopian, fantasy, paranormal romances, contemporary pieces that make me sob loudly into my pillow, and bad boys with hidden soft spots. SEE?! This is why my to-be-read list is monstrous; I love everything. Seriously, it scares me. *continues to add ALLLLLLL the books because it’s an addiction* I’m so happy to be a part of The Book Hookup. I really needed a positive outlet for all this book love, and now I feel like I’ve found it.
