Hi. My name is Amanda, and I’m addicted to books. My addiction story is different, though. I’m not interested in recovery; I just want to be left alone with my drug of choice—the written word.
The name On a Book Bender is a reflection of my reading style. I have a tendency to binge read, and I’m usually happy to devour whatever books are in my path. I mean, you just have to satisfy that craving, right? My genres of choice are mysteries, romance (paranormal, historical), fantasy (urban), and a handful of YA so long as the angst is minimal. I read other genres, but that depends on how desperate I am for a book fix.
My intention in starting a book blog was to create a community where it’s possible to discuss books, develop relationships with other readers, and have fun. It’s what many might call my mission statement. As On a Book Bender continues to grow and my own time becomes limited, I’ve taken on a couple associate reviewers, Kelly and Jenna. They each review about two books for me every month within the above specified genres, and they’re awesome.
On a Book Bender runs on a weekly schedule as follows:
- Monday: Review
- Tuesday: Top Off Tuesday
- Wednesday: Review
- Thursday: Open
- Friday: Discussion| Giveaway | Interviews | Review
- Saturday: Open
- Sunday: Clock Rewinders on a Book Binge
