Jane Green is my absolute favorite author. How did you know that these are the only two I haven't read? It all started with a chance reading of Jemima J. a few years ago and then I snatched up every single other book she had written to that point and read them one after the other. I adore Jane Green. She was my introduction to chick lit and I've been hooked ever since. I would absolutely LOVE to win these, I mean LOVE!!

About Me

My photo
New Hampshire, United States
Bibliophile, Anglophile, Traveller... I have been an avid reader all of my life, since I took the Dr. Seuss Dictionary away from my Mom when I was less than a year old because I wanted to read it myself. In college, where I earned my degree in English Literature, I was often asked "What are you going to do with it?" Now I finally have the answer to that question!!! Being employed as a Flight Attendant for twenty years has given me a lot of life experience and, better still, a lot of time to read. I love to travel for fun, too.
