About Us

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!

Jenny- Awesome Book Nut Co-Blogger, owner of Reading on the Farm
 
I’m 30, a wife and mother to three wonderful kids. I live on a farm with a dog, two cats, three rabbits, two goats and 10 chickens. I’m a bookkeeper by day and an avid reader the rest of the time. I’ve been a huge reader as long as I can remember, my mom told me I started reading at 3 and never stopped. Re​ading enriches every area of my life and I’ve been so happy to see my kids love it as much as I do.
My favorite genre is YA, especially fantasy and contemporary and some of my favorite authors are Maggie Stiefvater, Sarah Rees Brennan and Jennifer L. Armentrout. I’ve also really enjoyed getting into reading NA this past year and have discovered some great authors. I’ve been blogging for about a year and am so excited to start co-blogging here!!
Along with reading, I enjoy watching and geeking out over Game of Thrones and my newest obsession, Doctor Who!! I also love sewing, knitting and crocheting and have recently tried my hand at cross stitching (long story short – it looks awesome but takes. forever.) There’s never enough time in the day to do everything i’d like to do!
I can’t wait to share my love of reading and good books with you guys! Happy reading!
