Welcome to Bea's Book Nook. Originally, there was just Bea. Now, there are three of us, Bea, Jax and Liz. Jax and I met due to our love for Kelley Armstrong's board and we met Liz due to a shared love of Patricia Briggs's books.
You'll find mostly book reviews here, but also occasionally book news, book industry rumors, etc. The genres we review are fairly broad, if it appeals to one of us, we'll review it. We don't do business books but almost anything else is fair game. If you have a topic you want to see here drop us a line.
Bea: I love to read. I will read any time, anywhere, almost anything ie laundry detergent bottle, lost newspaper, whatever is at hand. I enjoy fantasy of most varieties, some sci fi, romances, mysteries, childrens, YA, the occasional craft book, anything to do with early childhood and development, and early childhood education. When I'm not reading, I play with my cat, make soaps, try to breathe, and teach pre-school. I'm a preschool teacher, an editor at Astraea Press and a freelance copy editor & proof reader. I also review at BookTrib.
Jax: I've been reading for as long as I can remember. I still re-read my childhood favorites, and am looking for new YA jewels as my children get older. I used to say I was just a sci-fi/fantasy junkie, but as I look over my shelves, my collection is a bit more eclectic than I thought. History, romance, photography, cookbooks, poetry, psychology/sociology, humor...my shelves are a hodgepodge of notions and schools of thought. I hope you enjoy the mix as much as I do.
Liz: I read quickly and love to read. I have less time to read these days thanks to a baby and a job but I still make the time. I enjoy urban fantasy, YA and anything that catches my interest. I've read everything from Heinlin to Storm Constantine to McAffrey and Lackey. I reread favorites at the drop of a hat, hence why we have two copies of "The Deed of Paksennarion", "Polgara the Sorceress", "The City and the Ship" and a handful of others that I 'lost' over the years. I've a thriving E-book library for space's sake, but I love the smell and feel of a fresh novel.
