Hello Wonderful Reader!

Thank you for stopping by! My name is Kim and I lived in Massachusetts until mid-2019 when my husband and I decided to move to Alabama. I used to be a children’s librarian until I had to go on disability five years ago. I miss it dreadfully, but where one door closes, another one opens right? I love blogging and most of my posts are book related. My favorite genres are: Historical Fiction, Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy, High Fantasy, Horror, Suspense,  Romantic Suspense and YA Fiction in just about any form. Phew! In essence, I guess you could call me a Bookaholic!

I also have a weakness for superheroes, and I’m enjoying (for the most part) the resurgence of them in popular culture. Don’t ask me who my favorite is because I can never make up my mind. Right now I’m just loving: The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, Gotham, Marvel’s Agents of Shield, the Thor and the Avengers movies, Siderman, and the Iron Man movies. I also love the Batman movies with Christian Bale and Deadpool.

I’m a Sherlock Holmes fanatic, and I love his current incarnation brought to life by Benedict Cumberbatch. although I also enjoy the older ones with Basil Rathbone, and the movies with Robert Downey Jr.

Finally, I’m truly terrible at all the technical things that go along with blogging. I battle with linking, and I’ve yet to figure out how to add badges. If you choose to follow me I hope you don’t mind putting up with my travails. I’m working on it!

  1. Hi Kim, I saw you on Sally Cronin’s blog recently. I am following now and hope you will follow back. I am an author with 24 books and counting for all ages and all genres. I also love superheroes! My favorites are Superman, Spiderman, Antman, Aquaman, Wonder Woman and all the rest. Ha!
    Maybe one day you will read some of my books. I am on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. My blog is Jemsbooks.blog and my website is Jemsbooks.com. I post reviews of all the books I read per month between 10-14 books. I am a bookaholic too.
    Love to follow you on social media too. Happy reading!

  2. It’s nice to meet you. I followed the link from Jay Cudney’s blog, and I am delighted you are a Pendergast fan! I enjoy historical fiction, and many varied genres. As a writer, I favor mystery and suspense flavored with folklore and urban legends.

    My husband works at a library part time (after retiring early from state government) and one of the things he is always talking about is the children’s programs and how wonderful they are in encouraging young readers.

    It’s a pleasure to meet you!

    • It’s lovely to meet you Mae Clair! The Pendergast series is one of my favorites so it’s wonderful to find another fan. I find myself nagging my followers to start the series whenever I review one of the books.

      It sounds like we have similar tastes in genres. I’m looking forward to exploring your blog.

      That’s wonderful about your husband working at a library. I still miss it every day.

    Hi Kim,
    I love Sherlock Holms too, both the BBC series and the original Conan Doyle books. Anyway, wondered if you’d consider following my WordPress blog which reviews books (mostly literature, fantasy, historical fiction, and suspense, a little noir too). I post on writing too since I write modern fantasy. Of course, I’ll follow you too for the book reviews.
