Erin- The Book Nut Founder, Admin, Blogger
I fell in love with reading when I was very young. I remember my mom reading Harry Potter to me and getting impatient that she would only read one chapter a night. So I grabbed the book and read it myself. I used to get in trouble all the time for reading during class when I should have been paying attention but my teachers couldn’t deny my high reading level.
These days I am a college graduate with a degree in English Literature with a minor in writing. My future plans involve getting my Masters in Library Science and promote literacy and reading for fun whenever and wherever I can.
Other than reading and writing I enjoy watching older television shows such as M*A*S*H and Murder She Wrote, fangirling over Sherlock and Benedict Cumberbatch, and going on thifting trips with my friends.
Of all the books that I’ve read my favorites seem to be mostly within the YA realm, particularly fantasy (especially high fantasy) and dystopian. This does not mean my tastes are confined only to those genres, or even just within YA. I have a very eclectic taste in books, just like with my tastes in other popular culture. Though if I’m honest, I find it difficult to really get into contemporary.
I am an avid and accomplished bargain shopper, it’s quite the obsession actually. If you need to know where to get good deals on books online, I know where you need to go!
I’m Jennie, but online I go by “Jennzah”. (A friend gave me the nickname when i was in my teens and it stuck).
Things I am : a book nerd, an audiophile, cat mom, British-American, Funko collector, lover of fun hair color (see above).
I’ve been reading since three years old. When I was 9 I picked up THE VAMPIRE CHRONICLES by Anne Rice and thought “YES.”. I’ve been addicted to paranormal reads ever since. I read a kaleidoscope of things, but my preference usually sticks to anything fantastical, YA, Urban Fantasy, or otherwise.
My favourite author is Neil Gaiman, and my favourite book of all time is STARDUST. Other favourites include Jessica Spotswood, Joelle Charbonneau, Mindy McGinnis, Sherry Thomas, Brenna Yovanoff, Gretchen McNeil, Jennifer Estep, Marissa Meyer, and Marie Lu.
Aside from reading, I also write, but my writing is currently on hold due to a huge block. Title is currently called MAGIC VAMPIRE MADNESS.
I can usually be found listening to my favourite singer, Paul Dempsey, and Something for Kate (his band), Florence and the Machine, or The Weeknd. I love discovering new music and building custom playlists, so Spotify is my jam. I also have a Funko collection that is threatening to over take my book collection, so that’s a thing. I also have a HUGE amount of fandoms, that we really shouldn’t talk about, but a few of them are House, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Bob’s Burgers, and Supernatural.
I like to hang out at home with my husband (who looks and speaks just like a Weasley Twin) — and we have lived both in the UK and in the US. Currently we live somewhere in Wisconsin with a cadre of crazy cats.
