Book Blogger Interview: Redheads Review It Better

Where are you from? Were you a big reader as a child?
-I enjoyed books as a child. I remember my mom taking us to the library constantly when I was a child. She would read to me and my little brother each night until we started not wanting it. Then all of a sudden I discovered music and was done with the kid stories.
What made you decide to start a book blog?
-Let’s go back to Christmas 2010. My mom is a big romance reader (she’s who got me away from reading all YA books and into what she called “big girl” books. LOL) and had a Kindle. I noticed that she was always reading and asked her about it. While telling me, she mentioned that Amazon has free books to read all the time and she was constantly finding new books to read. So I got a shiny new Kindle for Christmas and that was when the monster was created. I am pretty sure I stalked that free list on Amazon and got any romance book I could get my hands on. I found some great authors from that list and upon going to their sites, I stumbled upon some book blogs. Now my friends were constantly asking me for book recommendations by this point and I figured, why not start and book blog and review the books I read, that way my friends can check them out that way. And that’s when I started Redheads Review it Better. :)
What’s your biggest challenge as a book blogger?
-I think sticking to a schedule for posting stuff. I used to post daily during the week but I stopped doing that months ago because of all the time that it took. My son was starting to become more demanding of my time and he will always come first.
Who are some of your favorite authors and why?
-Man. This is a super hard question for me. I am definitely a romantic suspense addict so I love Julie Ann Walker, Elaine Levine, Lori Foster, Catherine Mann, and ML Buchman. Now if I want a good paranormal read, I usually go for N.J. Walters, Kerrelyn Sparks, Heather Killough-Walden, Pamela Palmer, Tina Folsom, and Brynn Meyers. For the rest (contemporary, erotica, western/cowboys) I love Lorelei James, Robyn Carr, B.J. Daniels, Diana Palmer, Melissa Schroeder, Erin Nicholas, and Leslie Ferdinand. There are so much more but we would be here forever. LOL.
What’s your biggest book/story related pet peeve?
-I am soooooooo tired of hearing about the 50 Shades series. I only got to about the 6% mark in the first book before I decided to stop reading it. I just couldn’t get past the writing. It probably is a great book but I would rather spend my time reading a better written story. Sorry for those 50 Shades lovers out there but I couldn’t stand the book.
If you could only read one genre for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?
-Romance. There are so many great books and authors out there and are always more popping up. And then there are so many sub-genres under the romance umbrella so if I get tired of a certain type I am reading, I can move on to a different one. :)

I am a busy mother of 1 to an attitude driven 3 year old boy with another boy on the way due March 25th! :D I currently am not working but I do plan on going back to watching a kid or two out of my home again towards late April. I know, I’m crazy watching kids from my home but have you checked the price of daycare?? I would literally work to pay for daycare and not see a single dollar in return. I just don’t see the point when I can stay home and not miss a thing with my boys. :) I will also be going back to school to become a Medical Transcriptionist so I can work from home and bring in a little more money than what watching a few kids can.

When not losing my mind around kids and reading any chance I get, I am what I like to call Pinterest obsessed. Lol. My family says I have an issue but I have gotten some great ideas off that site! I have recently started hand painting wine glasses and are toying with the idea of selling them on Etsy to help fund my book obsession. Any little thing helps! :)
