Welcome to our blog!
Amy and Jennifer ARE Seduced by Books. We’re both in our 30’s, moms, close friends, work together, and share many of the same interests including our love of reading. Amy grew up in Maryland and has been obsessed with Vampires for as long as she can remember. Jenn grew up in Florida and loves the furry, the fey, and the fangs, in that order. Currently we are both in Orlando, FL. When we can be pulled away from books, Amy loves to bake and Jenn loves to take pictures and scrap.
We decided to create a place where we could direct friends, and acquaintances for, book suggestions/recommendations (Jenn’s been known to talk to strangers on the train while traveling in NYC). Once we started out with a simple page, we evolved from there. Now we are sharing our book reviews, fun comments, recipes, and giveaways. We try to give reviews on new releases, pre-releases, and oldies but goodies that we read, or are reading. We’re going to be adding author interviews for established and up and coming authors soon.

Finally the Long Awaited Rating Scale Image!!

Some of you may have wondered WHAT is this "slice" they are talking about on the rating scale?  
WELL, we wanted our rating scale image to be unique to us.  One thing we thought about was cupcakes (Jenn wanted to say 4 cuppies, yea, we know she's funny that way). But we also wanted something sexy and to pull in the "paranormal genre" we all love.  

Well here goes - Amy makes this 

Unbelievable, Orgasmic, Knee-Buckling Lemon Vanilla Bean Cheesecake.   
So as a way to get her to make it *coughs* we decided to use it as our image.  Add a fang bite and a little "blood" and 
BEHOLD - - - - OUR RATING SCALE IMAGE 
Revealed at last 


Rating scale -
6 slices - TOP of the TOP - my kids ate fish sticks and cereal for every meal cause I couldn't put the book down

5 slices - AMAZING, Loved it - you better go buy it and read it, I'm giving u a quiz on it

4 slices and an extra bite of mine 4 1/2 - what does that mean? it means, get the book, read it, and give me some feedback.

4 slices - it was GREAT, definitely need to read it

3 slices - WELL DONE, Liked it, need to tell you about it, oh wait, we did

2 slices - Just OK - expected more

1 slice - UMMM, yea, we'll try again next book

Empty Plate - Really? No slice for you

  1. LOL! I love the idea of your slice o' pie rating system. That way, people can get pie-eyed about what books to read! ;-) We'll be able to determine which storylines "meringue true" and which ones just didn't "cut the custard". :-)
