Meet The FMR Girls
BLOGGERS and REVIEWERS
Hi, I'm Gina! I am from Northern Minnesota, USA. I am a blogger and reviewer at FMR Book Grind. I was never huge fan of reading. I would read a book here and there until I picked up Fifty Shades of Grey! Like many, that book got me into reading and I haven't been able to stop since! I stick with the romance genre, with contemporary and new adult as my favorites. I have recently got into m/m books and I love those! When I am not reading I enjoy being outside, gardening, fishing, running, and hiking. I am looking forward to sharing all the wonderful books I read with everyone!
Hi! I'm Erin and I live in North Carolina .I have three children whom I adore, 2 dogs, and a cat. I have been with FMR as a reviewer for about 2 years now and a blogger for about a year and a half. I love being a part of this group of wonderful ladies and it really has started to feel like an extended family. Reading is my addiction and my husband has threatened several times to find me a 12 step program! I absolutely love to read and I could talk about books for days. I could not possibly give a list of my favorite authors as there are so many. I am a huge fan of MC romance. I also prefer a series and not individual standalones. Once I am invested in the characters I want there story to go on forever. My 2 favorite series right now are the Rebel Wayfarers MC series and the Men Of Ocean Beach series.
Hi I am Leeann and I live in Sunny Sydney in the land down under!
I have been a reviewer with FMR for a couple of years and have recently been introduced to the blogging side of things.
Yep, I am the kid that hung out in the library at lunch time reading instead of playing outside with the other kids!
The first book I remember reading and having an impact when I was a child is 'When Tracy Came For Christmas' by June Epstein. My love for reading grew from there and I have never looked back.
What I love about books is that you always escape to another world. It opens your imagination and takes you to another place and another time. The rest of the world ceases to exist when you get lost in a great book!
I love any kind of romance but my absolute favorites are the MC Biker stories! I will read anything that catches my interest. I love nothing more than hanging out with a coffee, a book and of course chocolate.. I love that being part of the FMR family allows me to share my favorite books and authors with everyone else!
REVIEWERS at FMRBG
Hey, I'm Sam aka Shem. I'm from Portsmouth, UK. I have three children- two girls and a boy, I work hard and I read even harder!
I've been with FMR Book Grind for a few years as a reviewer, they accepted my crazy, loud and extremely passionate reviews with open arms. It has given me the amazing opportunity to interact with incredible authors and other readers as passionate as myself.
Reading has been my escape from the crazy dark days. It has blessed me with forever friends and has allowed me to experience some adventures and memories to last a life time.
I adore NA romance, Mafia/Organised Crime Romance and HOT AS HELL erotic novels, I also have a huge weakness for Rockers and Military Romance....YUM!
I have been blessed with the super power of speed reading, I didn't even know it was a thing until a year and a half ago. My reader friends think I'm a robot, but to me, it's just normal.
My favourite series of all time is the More Than Series by Jay McLean. I know without a doubt I can return to that series over and over again, it gives me the feels, the friendships and the forevers I crave.
I'm also known at the blog for claiming dibs on book boyfriends. I always fight dirty for them, so, be warned! The girls here on the blog have been an extended family. They are so supportive, and just rock my socks.
Hi, I'm Tatia. Trouble pronouncing it, it's Tasha. I'm from Birmingham, Alabama. I'm a reviewer at FMR Book Grind. I've been reading again for about 4 years now. I don't know what made me pick up a book again. I became a stay at home mom around that time. I can remember picking up Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire. I read it 3 times in a row. I still read it on every road trip. I tend to stick with the romance genre, whether it be New Adult, Contemporary Romance, or even some Young Adult, I love getting lost in the stories. When I'm not busy reading, I'm spending time with my family. We love camping, going to the local drive-in theatre, walking around outside flea markets, and hanging out with good friends. I love getting to share some of my favorite books with everyone. Hopefully I can help someone find their new favorite author/story.
Hey there, I'm Kim. I've always loved to read. I can remember reading on the school bus as we traveled to school. My Mom was the one who introduced me to the worlds words can open.
I live in Northern Indiana. I've been a Hoosier my whole life , but I do enjoy traveling.
I'm beginning a new adventure in life as I figure out this big world on my own.
The girls here at the Grind are the best.
I've been reviewing here for a little over a year.
Romance of almost any kind is what I enjoy most.
When I'm not reading I'm working in the yard or playing with my dog.
Hey y'all, I'm Ashley. I am a bookworm through and through. My grandpa taught me how to read when I was 4, and I haven’t stopped reading since. I've been reviewing on the Grind for a couple of years now, as well as my own blog Book Junkie: Not-So-Anonymous for almost three. I love books of ANY genre, and love sharing them with other people!
I grew up in a small town in Minnesota, and spent most of the first 25 years of my life in that town. Then I made the leap and moved all the way to Florida! My entire immediate family now lives there, and although I often miss the snow at Christmas, I can’t complain about the weather! I'm currently living in London because I’m a masters student in Kingston University’s publishing program. As for where I’ll live once I finish my masters degree in September, I guess we’ll see where the wind blows!
Hey I'm Amy E, I started reading again as an adult when I came across Tijan's Fallen Crest High and then Jay McLean's More Series. I will read just about anything in the romance genre but my favorites are MC books and paranormal romance. I have too many "favorite" authors to list but my top 5 books ever are; Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice, At Peace by Kristen Ashley, More Than Forever by Jay McLean, The Great Gatsby by F Scott Fitzgerald, and The Virgin Suicides by Jeffery Eugenides.
I've been married for almost thirteen years and have three gorgeous kids. We live on a farm in Oregon with 4 dogs, 5 cats, 5 horses, a pony, and a cow.
I haven't been reviewing for FMR for very long but all the girls here are so great that it seems like I have been a part of the group for much longer. I'm excited for May when a bunch of us will be at the same book signing and can meet in person.
Hi! I'm Stacey from California! I'm a stay at home mommy of 4 kids & have an amazing hubby. I LOVE to readable am so blessed to be a part of this amazing group! I love to read because it can take me on a crazy adventure, to a dream world, give me a good laugh or be a tear jerker. I love all genres but my fav is YA or New Adult Romance. I also love to do crafts, and scrapbook on my free time (who has that though). But all in all, I'm just a mom who loves to read when ever she can! It's my happiness & my addiction 😊💖📚
Hey all, my name is Tracy and I am from Woodridge IL. I have an amazing teenage daughter who is 13. I work hard, mostly too hard so I try to find as much time as I can to read. I have been with FMR for over a year, they are like my drug dealer (they supply my addiction to books). These are girls here are great, like a set of sisters I never had.
Hello All! Cristina here and I am from Southern California, a stay-at home mama, a Leading Designer for Origami Owl, and a Blogger for Babbling Chatter Reads. I am married with an amazingly sweet Hubby that also puts up with my love of different things, have two children who keeps me on my toes with their antics, and a dog, Kobi that drives me crazy. They are life, my world and more!
Thanks to Twilight it got me reading like a bookworm 📚 again. A favorite pastime that I treat myself every chance I get. It is an escape addiction from reality that I need from the everyday happenings of life.
I have been with FMR for over a year and a half now and am blessed being here with the girls. I savor in all types of genres (NA, Contemporary Romance, etc.) with some of my top favorite authors being Colleen Hoover, Jay McLean, HJ Bellus, and Penelope Ward. They always give me the feels when it comes to their words. I also come to find that books entailing musicians is a weakness of mine. 🙈🙊 🏻🏻
