Welcome to my blog!
My name is Geybie Chriestien. I call myself a fulltime reader since that is who I am. I’m a reader and reading is my passion, especially romance novels. In addition to reading romance novels, I love animals (I’m a vegan), music, and dancing shows. I’m married to the love of my life and have been with my husband since I was in college. We have two smart dogs named Momo and Lala that we love like crazy.
I started reading novels when I was in high school but then went on hiatus during my college years with all the school stuff but got back to it after graduating and have since been reading constantly.
What were the reasons I started blogging?
I started this blog as a way to talk about books that I read and loved and connect with fellow book junkies. This blog has led me to an awesome community–passionate readers and book bloggers from all over the world–and to the friendships which I value the most. Moreover, this humble, little blog has introduced me to countless talented authors whose books have rocked my world. Being able to help promote their books has been my everyday joy I never take for granted.
What kinds of books do I love?
I love Contemporary, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, New Adult, Adult, and sometimes Young Adult romance and am open to other genres as well.
What kind of reader and reviewer am I?
I’m a mood reader; I read for pleasure. Even though I read what I’m in a mood for, I do know what I love in stories and can point out immediately whether I’ll like the book or not. I know exactly what I’m looking for. I’m also an honest reviewer. If I love a book, I’ll say the reasons and vice versa. My reviews are not the reflection of my personal oppinion on the authors. It’s never personal.
What do I love in a story?
I’m addicted to happily-ever-afters. I love happy endings! Yes, I’m a hopeless romantic and proud of it. Even though I’m an open reader who is willing to read everything, happy endings are a must for me. In addition to happy endings, I love alpha, bad heroes as well; the ones with hot spots hidden inside, no matter who they are. I’m constantly searching for outstanding books; the ones with ‘WOW’ factors that make my heart race.
Where can you find your next reads?
I have a page dedicated to all my book recommendations based on ratings, themes, years, and genres. Check this out. You can also find it on the menu section below the header with the title “recommendations.”
Why mostly 4 stars and above?
When I started blogging, I review all the books I read and always finished the ones I started. However, over the months into blogging, I realized it didn’t do any good to me and my readers (YOU). I tortured myself to finish the books I didn’t enjoy and forced myself to write the reviews I knew were useless for my readers. Therefore, I decided to only read the ones I love. It makes the reviewing process more fun and I can recommend them to you.
