I’m Jen Lucas, a blogger who loves all things literature. Reading is one of my favourite ways to spend my spare time when I’m not travelling the UK and Ireland with my full time work. My life is ruled by my pets, especially my two cats, Mars and Luna(tic). I also have an old lady, Kaycee, my 14 yr old Lab X who takes over everywhere and snores like nothing you have ever heard.
I studied literature (loosest sense of the word) at University, studying in London, Wolverhampton and Arizona, so I have a love for all things South Western ( and a particular love for Tex Mex food). My job takes me all over the country and I sometimes wonder if I choose where I visit based on the books I’m reading or choose my next read by where I have to travel.
I love animals, love travel and love to ramble (verbal and physical) – I make no apologies for the length of my reviews. Short, long and anything in between, they reflect how I feel about the book, nothing more nothing less. I also love music and the theatre, having once been a frustrated and somewhat lacking in talent thesp.
I have a real love for Crime Fiction and thrillers as I love a little (fictional) human suffering from time to time, but don’t mind the occasional bit of Chick Lit, Young Adult or romance – I’m not completely heartless and consider myself an equal opportunity reader.
About My Guest Reviewer
Since starting the blog I have managed to secure a wonderful guest reviewer. By secure I mean that she is related to me so we have to tolerate each other. Thankfully we share a love of theatre and reading so that’s less painful than it could be. My guest reviewer is my sister Mandie a.k.a @mgriffths163
Mandie has spent many years working in various procurement teams for the Civil Service. Reading is a great escape for her from the everyday and something to do when she becomes a Motocross widow on a weekend when her husband and son are off touring the country for bike races. She shares my passion for Mexican food and chillies and also loves travel too. No. We aren’t twins. I’m the baby, she’s middle sis.
My starting reading again inspired Mandie to do the same so both of us can generally be found with our faces in our kindles. In terms of reading, Mandie will be plugging a few of the genre gaps I leave and is happy to tackle most books with the exception of horror (always more my forte) and Sci Fi/Fantasy.
