In July of 2011, Shari fell in love with all the book review sites she saw for the first time. With so many romance books out there, she wanted to share her love of some books as well. Soon it grew into her passion. In March 2012, she needed a little help, so she added a few reviewers to help!
Shari is married to her prince charming and living with her 3 little monsters…ummm children. She has loved reading since she was a teenager, and started reading romances long before she was old enough to be reading them. Currently working on her Domestic Engineering degree, she chases a toddler son all day while throwing laundry around like a pro. When not chasing her son, she can be found at the table doing homework with her daughters. So each and every minute she barely has free is spent with her nose in a book… or eyes glued to which ever electronic device is in her hands. She owns a Kindle and iPad just to make sure she can read all kinds of ebooks. Stalking is illegal, but she still does it anyway…J.R. Ward, Lissa Matthews, Cherise Sinclair, Gena Showalter, Kresley Cole, Eliza Gayle, Jaci Burton, Lauren Dane, Maya Banks…and there are more, but you have to find those out on your own. She can be found at: Twitter | Facebook | Google+ | Goodreads
I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.
I am a 36 year old married mother of 4. My day job is a web site coordinator for Cygnus Business Media. I read to escape the hecticness of my life. I would love to share my opinion.
I have been reading romance since I was 12 years old and I can honestly say that at 42 I’m a true romance junkie. I married the man of my dreams 20+ years ago and our son is in his third year of college. We live in Northern Wisconsin where you never know what the weather will be like but it keeps us on our toes.
I am having a blast reviewing at Delightedreader.com and have recently starting putting reviews on Goodreads.com and Amazon.com as well.
I myself look at reviews when searching for something new to read and if I find the plot interesting a bad review won’t necessarily turn me away. It doesn’t always mean that it’s not a good book, it could be that we have different tastes or maybe that the person was not in the mood to read a certain style of book at the time. I’ve been known to start a book only to put it down and start it another day so that it gets a fair review.
