Anyway, let's get down to business.
Salutations, I'm Jen. I started Makeshift Bookmark last September because I had been stalking blogs since January 2010. Let's face it, I don't have many people with whom I can gush about YA in my preferred manner: unbridled, relentless fangirling. I love reading any type of YA. Paranormal, of course (thanks, Twilight!) but I've also developed a fondness forcontemporary and those YA books that deal with difficult topics. There's just something indescribable about reading a book that really makes you FEEL. Not only that, but it's a bonus if a book can make you feel an insane amount of joy, hurt, or make you cry. Am I a literary masochist? Maybe. But that's how I like my books.
About me personally? I'm just a gal on the wrong side of my 20s who loves to laugh and be laughed at. I'll be married 2 years in August to my husband (affectionately referred to as "Mr. Jen") who is the greatest thing in my life. No kiddos just yet, because I am trying to finish nursing school before I think about anything crazy like that. We do, however, have two feline children, Bo and Bella. Seriously, I love them as if they were my own children. I work full-time as a call center representative and am convinced I speak to the craziest people on earth 40 hours a week.
I love to sing. I love to read, duh. I have THE best family anyone could ask for. I'm seriously ridiculous and will do anything for a laugh. And I can't wait to meet all of you!
