Hey y’all its me Karen Blue!

KissinBlueKaren is a place about my reads, mostly. I like to talk about books because reading is my passion. I want to be a diverse reader and not get stuck on one genre or another. My goal is not to read more books, but to be more well read then I was before.

I tend to switch genres a lot, so expect variety here. I read mostly fiction. Here on KissinBlueKaren you will find some self-help(ish) books, science and memoir non-fiction books as well. This blog features reviews of Adult, YA, Dystopia, Paranormal, Horror, Women’s Fiction, Sci-Fi, Romance and Thrillers.

My favorite reads are the ones that stay with me. The reads that make me question my reality or/and give good feels. I never know where they are going to come from, so I keep picking things hoping to be surprised. I love to engage with people and so leave me a comment to let me know you stopped by.

I have been in the blogosphere since 2009, on this site since 2010, blogging books since 2014. I have four kids and I am a medical professional (a.k.a. nurse). I don’t identify as being a book nerd because I actual think I am pretty cool, (cool is still a cool word, right?). I do love books, but really being a bit nerdy is cool again, so who cares. I am a bit narcissistic, but I am funny too, so there’s that.

My mouth gets me into trouble sometimes. Look for my avi, I am everywhere. I comment on a lot on blogs, because I am a stalker lover of blogs. I know bloggers love comments and I am no exception.

I am very active on social media. I am almost always online via Twitter, (because iPhone). I have a BookTube Channel, check out my channel. Also, you can find me on Snapchat at Karen Blue.

I am Gemini and everything I touch shows it. Short attention span, awkward, and outgoing. I have a ton of projects going on right now, and I love challenges. This blog is only one of them. I am currently working on a book. I may never even publish it, but I am committed to writing the damned thing, for now anyways. I am an avid reader. I obviously love books.

I also ride a motorcycle. Here’s a picture of my baby…

Last year we moved into a new home in Connecticut and it has a book room! I painted it and made it my own. If you want to know more about my bookshelf makeover, click here. Here are some pictures of them as they look today.
