About this blog: Hi, I'm Janice and I like to read. This is my little corner of the internet. I like getting comments and discussing books, so if you've read a book and disagree or agree with my review, commenting would be awesome. I know everyone approaches the same book in their own way.

A word about advertising: Due to LJ's advertising policy, you may see some ads at the bottom and tops of the page. That isn't my doing. However: the links to Amazon and B&N (some posts link to Indiebound) here are referral links. Clicking helps me feed the book addiction.

Where I get my books: Unless I specify that I got a book from a publisher or author, I got the book myself (bought, borrowed, won). I will always disclose if someone sent me the book to review it (and have done so as long as I've been blogging).

Friending: Friend away!

If you want to send a book to review: I really like reading urban fantasy, futuristics, and space operas, but I also read young adult, fantasy and some romance. I seem to be a fan of slow moving romances – books where romance may be an element, but it’s not the focus of the story. If you have something you think I would love, feel free to contact me. I will write an honest review.

These links should give you a better idea of what I like to read. Authors who I stalk (I will read pretty much everything by them that I can get my hands on) include: Wen Spencer, Michelle Sagara, Ann Aguirre, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs, Jeri Smith-Ready, and Linnea Sinclair.
