Welcome to Dazzled by Books. I have had my own personal blog since 2011 and you can check that out at by clicking here. I started reading book blogs in 2012 and decided to start up my own. I figured why not, I read all of the time and I love to write. I have been writing reviews on books for sites like amazon and barnes and noble for years, so now I am just putting my reviews on another site, my own. I love blogging and I enjoy reading books…the perfect combo.

Bd-aoVoCAAARoCNHey, I’m Ali. I am an avid reader and have been reading since I was around the age of 3. I have a book with me everywhere I go. I am also a writer. I love to write, journaling, blogging, and fiction. Books are the best way to escape from life sometimes. I am an aspiring author, my dream is to be published someday and, of course, work for HarperCollins. Right now, I am going to school to get my English degree. I would like to have my own personal library someday. My vision is ceiling to floor bookcases with a sliding ladder, like the library in the Disney version of Beauty and the Beast. I love things that sparkle and glitter which is how I came up with the name Dazzled by Books. I love way too many books, so there is no way that I would be able to pick a favorite. I am addicted to Twitter, so if you would like to get to know me better, you can find me on there.

My favorite book quote:

“I’ve never seen anyone get so excited over books before. You’d think they were diamonds.” – Will (Clockwork Angel)

Cassandra Clare

I have invited some special people to guest blog for me, since I can’t read every book out there. I wish I could but with the limited amount of time we have in a day, I have called reinforcements to help.

Guest Blogger #1 would be my bestie Hunter.

 Hello Everyone, My name is Hunter. I believe that reading is a lost art and one of the few real treasures that are in this world. I have a passion for books for many reasons. They have kept me company through a lot of dark and lonely times and have let me see men and women that have become my hero’s as well as the people that I want to be like. Settling into a chair with a book in my free time feels as much like home as walking through my front door for me. My interests and opinions on music and art and every other thing in life changes frequently except for this one thing…..I will always love reading. It is not a passing fad for me. It is a way of life. Besides that, I love the outdoors and finding new and exciting things while exploring. I’ve just recently discovered that I like speaking (Poetry, teaching, etc ) and I am excited to see where it leads me. I enjoy talking or debating most subjects and I love to meet new people.


Guest Blogger #2 would be lovely blogger LeAmbra.

Hey, I’m LeAmbra. I’m happily married and a mother of three boys! I love to read! I never leave my house without my kindle. I love paranormal book and romance but I’ll read anything else. I also love to write and hope to have my books out soon in 2014. I live on the river so if I’m not reading me and the family are fishing or swimming.I also love music (even tho I can’t sing) country is my favorite. 🙂


Guest Blogger #3 Coming Soon
