Jennifer ~ Tar Heel Reader

Reading under the light of a Carolina moon


Thanks for stopping by to visit my blog! I’ve followed and loved book bloggers for years, and I recently received just the gentle nudge I needed from a special publicist to start my own blog, and here I am!

My reading philosophy: reading is a joy and pleasure in my life. My glass is already half full when I pick up a book because I am thrilled I have the time to read. I try my best to find every book’s strengths, and I tend to be a “good picker” for those I will most enjoy. I view my blog as a way to share my favorite reads, and for that reason, all the books I read will not be featured.

I’m an eclectic reader, mixing up genres often, and my favorites are literary fiction, historical fiction, contemporary fiction/women’s fiction, nonfiction/memoir, psychological thriller/suspense, rom/com, cookbooks, and children’s books.

Thank you again for visiting my little space! Please feel free to contact me with any inquiries.

a thoughtful reveal

All reviews are my honest opinion on books I've read by request or inclination. Whether purchased by me or provided by an author or a rep, all opinions are my own and I receive no compensation of any kind. My reviews may be revealing, but they will not spoil your enjoyment of the book.
