A Special Welcome To Our Newest Star-Crossed Lady!

We’re so happy to announce that one of our good friends is joining us here at Star-Crossed Book Blog.  We met Arielle a couple of years ago on Goodreads and we all really hit it off.  From her fun, lively, passionate reviews to her quirky personality, we just couldn’t help but to bond with her over our shared love of books.  I mean, how couldn’t we…we like almost all the same books, the same genres…and we even fight for the affection of all the same book [husbands] boyfriends (though Chelsea likes to think she has a claim on allll the boys)!!  Like we said.  Match made in heaven!  So you can learn a little bit more about Arielle, here’s what she had to say about herself –

Hi I’m Arielle (and yes I was named after the mermaid).  I’m a dog mom and soon-to-be, first-time human mom (!!!).  I love wine (currently missing that one), being in the sunshine, coffee, and you guessed it, a good book.  I work as a public librarian in the US where part of my job is to purchase children’s and adult non-fiction.  While that can be fun and challenging, it’s definitely not where my reading passions lie.

 Ever since high school I have been HOOKED on YA fiction.  From Cabot to Maas to Westerfield I have probably read close to it all.  While I don’t exclusively stick to young adult, as long as I can find something with an engaging plot, a romance of some kind, and QUALITY dialog, I will be satisfied.  Such books have helped craft who I am as a person and I know that I can easily say I would not be who I am today without them. 

 When I was offered an opportunity to join this blog I was ecstatic!  In the world of libraries, the process of recommending books to patrons is called reader’s advisory, and is one of the most important services that we provide.  It helps us (in my mind) spread joy.  That’s what I’d like to do here.  From my obsession with all things fantasy (and sci-fi and dystopian) to my secret trysts with the smutty stuff it’s my hope to help these wonderful ladies spread our LOVE for all things bookish.  My favorite authors include Tamora Pierce, Sarah J Maas, Nora Roberts, Alexandra Bracken, Maggie Stiefvater, and Elle Kennedy just to name a few on a VERY long list.

Please give Arielle a huge welcome.  We absolutely love her and we know that you will too!
