About Me

Hey There!
Thanks for visiting my blog! 

My name is Meital, 36 years old from Israel. I'm here rumbling about my favorite (and least favorite) books and sometimes just getting excited about my everyday life (or changes I'm doing around here).

I've managed a few blogs in my past, mostly my daily life and interest in Beauty and Makeup but this blog is all about my passion for reading and summarizing my thoughts about the books I've read.

I review EVERY book I read. If it was great - naturally, but also if I hated it with a passion! hehe well, I will NEVER write something like that, I will explain as best as I can why I didn't find a certain book compelling. What were the specific issues that put me off reading. 

I manage my reading list quite obsessively on GoodReads (feel free to follow me :)). I make lists on lists of the books I plan on reading and WHEN I plan on reading them. It's just that I'm quite overwhelmed with the amount of books I'm surrounded with I need to organize them somehow so I won't get totally lost - forget about a new book in a series, or a new book by an author I love. 

The feature I'm most proud of here is my "Series Pages". On the Menu Bar you can see a drop down by series genre, in each drop down there is a list of the series I've read and summarized. The series with the ♣ symbol are finished (no more books to be published). 

All the Series are also listed on a special list as well as the list of all the authors - see scroll downs on the left - "Authors List" ; "Full Series List". Pretty convenient if I do say so myself ;) Some series don't have pages (if there's only 1-2 books or if I abandoned it somewhere in the beginning) so if you are looking for something specific it's a good idea to look there. 

The Series pages are actually really cool, they contain information about the series, sometimes about the characters with links to all my book reviews. They're especially detailed on PNR series (just beware of Spoilers in those!).  

I love working on my blog, writing reviews and generally organizing the pages and overall look. But naturally my great passion is reading on my Kindle Voyage. I love the peace and quiet of sitting at home with a wonderful book, my dogs laying around me, my daily concerns disappear as I wander through the words. 

At the moment I mostly read Contemporary Romance though I also enjoy Paranormal Romance, Romantic Suspense, New Adult and Historical Romance, either M/F or M/M (a few F/F thrown in). I guess my focus have changed throughout the years. I used to be far more into fictional and now I'm more and more looking for the realistic and mature.

My other interests are dogs. I have two sweetlings at home. I am the secretary of a local pure breed club, I enjoy partaking in dog shows and helping out whenever I can when people are looking for a dog or general advice, mostly concerning my club (having the most knowledge in).  

I love everything and anything Makeup. I'm quite unconventional about it, have no problem wearing red eyeshadows or blue lipstick (whenever the occasion suits ;)). I thought about adding a few other interests to this blog including makeup but right now I don't think it's "right". See how it goes in the future.

If Tattoos could be referred to as a hobby it would be one of mine. I have 8 and naturally I already have a few more planned for the future!

Since English isn't my mother tongue please excuse me if I make a few mistakes. I mostly read in English since until recently there wasn't a real option of adding books in Hebrew on my precious Kindle. I want to add more books in Hebrew but with the endless list I already have and the fact most of my reading friends read mostly in English I don't get a lot of recommendations to read in my native tongue so we'll see how it goes.. At the moment there is ONE book review in Hebrew and I gotta say I wish I read it in English.. (the translation was HORRIBLE).

Feel free to comment or contact me. I'd love to hear your opinion on books I've read or books you think I'll also enjoy. I'm open minded and usually don't bite - try me ;)

Typical reading position.
