First Post

   EEEK!!! My first post! I'm so excited. I figure for my first post I'll write what I hope and intend to do with my blog. I am a SAHM to a 3 year old boy and a 12 year old stepdaughter. I have always had a passion for reading but lately I haven't had to time or money to properly pursue my passion. I want to show other mommies that yes you can spend plenty of quality time with your kids while still getting in a book or two (maybe even more!)  a week. Most of us these days are living on a budget so I also hope to help find great deals on books.

    As far as the future of this blog is concerned I definitely plan on hosting some giveaways along with giving reviews on books. All of my giveaways will be book related but not all necessarily will they be books. Another thing I'm super excited about is that I plan each week to introduce an unknown author to everyone. How am I going to do that?  There are many wonderful sites on the web that allow people to put their writings on the internet for all to read and critique. Many of these people are hoping to become published writers. I would love to give them the exposure that want and deserve. All of my reviews will be honest and forthright. If I don't like a novel or can't get through it I will tell you why but I will also make it a point to let you know the good points of it.

   What about he kind of books you'll see featured on here? All I can say is that like most bibliophiles my love for books goes beyond one genre. There will be plenty of romance, mystery, sci-fi, thrillers, and horror and some a combination of the other. I even plan on trying to read a western or two. A number of my books are books that have been out for some time and some are brand new.

   With all that being said I hope you enjoy my blog. I would love feedback! Whether it is positive or negative I can take it! I also would love suggestions on books you think I should read. If you would like me to read something you have written (published or not) please feel free to email me at mommywantstoread at
