Meet The Team!

About Amber:

Owner/Blogger/Public Relations & Marketing



Hey guys! I'm Amber... uhhh, I'm 28, and I'm kinda weird (but we'll go with funny). I went to school for mass communication and marketing at The University of Southern Mississippi (SMTT) and put this little blog together when I was pregnant and stuck on bedrest with my daughter, Lola! I really didn't read a lot in high school, or college for that matter. I was too busy getting into trouble, (of the totally good variety) but picked up books shortly after "growing up" (I'm just kidding. I never grew up.) Twilight sparked my interest again and I've kinda been non stop since then.

My fave books? Since this list is ever changing, you can check out my current top ten on goodreads
I'm the Social Media Manager for InkSlinger PR, (it's my "grownup job" and also pretty much my dream job. Literally, I get paid to fangirl) and a pretty proud member of the Cora Carmack Rusk University Series Street Team, and more recently, the DOON series street team. My favorite part of this site is getting out to events to meet everyone. Seriously, you guys are amazing. (The Authors are pretty cool too.) Sometimes I don't shower in lieu of reading. (ewwwww, Don’t worry, they make me shower before events). I talk a lot, think even more, and I think I'm pretty freaking funny – even when I'm really not.



Projects she works on (marketing, editing character teasers, beta reading, other fun stuff) She would love it if you checked them out! 




I'm on Twitter, Instagram, Personal Instagram, Tumblr, and Facebook

*Fun Fact: Carmen and Amber are real life Parabatai! All because of books, love, and fandoms!* 




About Carmen: 

Sister Site/Blogger/Graphic Designer/Photographer


Once upon a time, I used to think that reading wasn’t for me (what was I thinking,right?).
I never once picked up a book in high school, and maybe it was because reading felt like an obligation rather than something I should enjoy.  A few years after I graduated (2006), a girl I worked with introduced to the wonderful books by Stephenie Meyer (can you guess the series?). I finished all four books in less than a week. My parents thought I was depressed because I locked myself in my room, was skipping meals, and barely talked to anyone – when in fact, those were the best few days I’ve had in a long time.
I couldn’t thank the girl enough who recommended the series. I fell in love with being able to enter a whole other world besides my own. To be able to see the world through someone else’s eyes and experience something otherworldly, it was truly something I just couldn’t let go.
Ever since then, I just can’t seem to put a book down. If I’m not reading a book, then I’m most likely sleeping or eating. I enjoy reading Young Adult, New Adult, Romance, Paranormal Romance, Dystopian… you name it! I’m a sucker for a great story, and if it involves love, then all the better!

Some of my favorites are: 
Thoughtless Trilogy
The Mortal Instruments
The Infernal Devices
The Lux Series
Divergent Trilogy
Vampire Academy Series
Bloodlines Series
The Fault in Our Stars
The Hunger Games
So, if you’re wondering why I started blogging, well, the answer is simple. Books changed my life and it was all because someone recommended a few books to me that I fell in love with. I hope that my time here will help encourage those who not only love to read, but also those who don’t.  :)

About Ursula:

Blogger/Photographer 

I am 35, wife, mother of 4 awesome children, work in accounting and I am also a part time newborn photographer.
Reading and music are what complement my life and make it whole, whenever I have spare time you will always find me with a book in my hands or listening to my favorite tunes.
My love for reading started in high school and then I was on hiatus for a few year, I’m not ashamed to admit that The Twilight Saga sparked by love for reading once again and well here we are not, I’m a total bookworm once more :)
I’m lucky to have found these awesome ladies to work with and share our passion for reading.
YA literature is my fave genre but I really read just about anything. I enjoy reviewing what I read and helping other discover new books and authors to fall in love with.
I am a huge Pearl Jam fan, and I mean HUGE! I will travel long and far to see them live, and over the past 20 years I have attended to 70 of their concerts all over the country. I also love One Direction <3 (Don’t judge me!)
Some of my favorite books are (just to mention a few): 
The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare

About Krystle

Hii! My name is Krystle, I'm 18 and I'm a first year college student. I wake up everyday in hopes to find something new to this life; I look for the realness and genuineness in everything and anything surface-based immediately bores me. I love words, I talk to strangers more than I should, and I am entirely made up of espresso coffee. Also, one direction is my guilty pleasure (but I don't feel so guilty about it)


Now that the basics are out of the way, I realized my love for books in kindergarten when my teacher gave me a brand spanking new, flashy, hard copy of "The Rainbow Fish". Since then my mom would have to rip books out of my hand to get me to stop reading them. But there was about three years of my life where I just completely stopped reading all together for no apparent reason (first three years of high school)(forever regretful) and then come senior year I was introduced to my favorite series ever by Anna Todd called "After" but i'm sure you already guessed that, I finished all of the books in 5 days. So that sorta sparked the flame all over again and since then I've been itching for a new book every time I close one. Something about the way you really have no control over the world inside the pages, a way to escape and discover all at the same time. it's cool how there is a book out there for everyone

I also love to write and have been doing so my whole life, I do intend on writing a book sometime in the (hopefully) near future, but writers block is very faithful whenever I attempt it, so I'll stick with reading others for now.

About Brie

I’m a 30-something coffee addict, I mean Math Instructor/Assistant who spends every spare moment reading books, talking about books, photographing books (see my Instagram) and my bestie has some how managed to convince me to start reviewing books! I don’t know how this happened. 

I struggled with pretty severe dyslexia growing up, so I didn’t really start to enjoy reading until I was well into my twenties. Once I found my groove and more than just a handful of authors that I was willing to try, I began devouring books. If you had asked me 10 years ago if I would love reading as much as I do now, I would have probably laughed in your face. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would (or even could) read over 100 books a year. 

When I’m not reading or working, you can find me playing with my furbabies (a white boxer and a old grumpy cat). 

My all time favorite Fandom is Harry Potter and it’s the series that sparked my love of reading. 
Some of my other favorites include: 
Throne of Glass series
The Grishaverse
The Vampire Academy/Bloodlines series

About Taylor 

Hi my name is Taylor and I'm originally from Texas, southern girl at heart but I moved to Oregon about four years ago, and am happily living on the coast. I'm currently in college to get a bachelors degree in creative writing.
Reading and writing are my passion. Along with drinking coffee. Yes, it's a passion.

My love of reading is what really awoke me in life and showed me all the endless possibilities there truly are. I love to read every genre but fantasy and romance are my favorites. The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer was what really got me back into loving reading.

I love watching movies with my family. Sci-Fi, Horror, Romance, Super-Hero...really I'll watch anything. Unless it's boring, then that's when I break out a book.

Some of my favorite books are:
Heir of Fire by Sarah J Maas 
Harry Potter by J K Rowling 
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn 
Fifty Shades of Grey by E L James 
and The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. 
Just to name a few.

You can find me on Instagram where I'm always taking pictures of endless books and what I'm currently reading. @taylors_pages
