Vamp Angel's Reviews




VampAngel's Dilemma




A little bit about Vamp Angel...
I've always loved to read, I come from a family of big time readers. My mother used to read to me when I was little, but once I learned how to do it myself I dismissed her services. She was really supportive of the habit. The house I grew up in was full of books, most in my Mom's bedroom. She had a whole wall of books. I didn't really enjoyed watching TV when I was young, plus I was an only child and had to make my own fun. I turned to books. I read pretty much all the time. There was this small children's bookstore near my home, and my mom would take me there weekly and let me choose any books I wanted, within reason, of course. I adored that place. I read a lot throughout my whole childhood and early teenage years. It was my favorite activity. I guess I've always been a nerd. I remember being a sullen teen sometimes and coming to my mom to whine that I was bored. She would look at me, walk to her bookshelf, pluck a book out and hand it to me without saying a word. I would dutifully read whatever she gave me. I think I read all 85 of Agatha Christie's books by the time I was 13. My mom had the whole collection. I guess I can't really put into words why I like reading, it's more like breathing to me. it's just something I've always done. It's a big part of who I am. It's just natural to me. Books are my drug of choice. They take me away from reality and into amazing new worlds and fun adventures. It's like traveling, only cheaper. Really, is there anything better than a good book?

I started my blog because for the last couple of years I've had a lot of free time that has been spent reading and online. I've read so many books and made so many new friends that enjoyed reading as much as I did. They all seemed to like my recommendations and come to be for advice on what to read next. I really liked getting people to read and fall in love with books that I cherish, so when I got a Kindle about a month ago it just dawned on me that I should start a book blog. After all, I'm a fast reader with really fast access to books now. Also, I already spent all my time reading and online discussing books anyway, so why not? I saw other friends blogging and they were having so much fun. I decided to join in. I'm loving the experience and the response I've gotten so far has really amazed me. I've been blogging for less than a month and I've already met so many wonderful people who share my interests. I get to be surrounded by books and book lovers, what could be better than that?
