Take a moment to read...

Thanks for stopping by, my name is Vanessa, I am 26 and 'A moment to read' is my new blog.  Although I am not new to the blogging world, this is my first venture into book blogging - why I haven't made it here before now I do not know... Books are my life!

I am an avid reader - I will have a go at reading just about anything, though as we all do, I have my favourites.  My chosen genres are fantasy, gothic literature, fairy tales and their adaptions includng fan-fiction rewrites and of course, the newer 'adult new-romance' and erotica!  I also have a love of some well known teen fiction series' but tend to swing more to adult fiction these days!  Some of my favourites include Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld Series, Tiffany Reisz's Original Sinners, Nalini Singh's Guildhunter Novels, Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver Series and Sylvia Day's Crossfire Series.  My long time favourite children's book is Alice in Wonderland, my favourite Disney movie is Beauty and the Beast and my favourite fairy tale is Sleeping Beauty.  And that is just to pick a few; I genuinely could go on forever...

My biggest dream in life is to be a published fantasy fiction writer.  I have so many stories on the go, and so many characters in my head that most people think I'm crazy - I promise, it's just the voices talking to me, they don't mean any harm!  I currently have one novella available on Amazon and am very proud of achieving the first step towards my goals!

I do have a life outside of the pages of my books... though I have to admit I do spend most of my spare time either reading or writing.  I took Stephen King literally... 


'If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others:
read a lot and write a lot.'

But my other personality traits include being a professional blonde, knowing that Mother Nature is the true boss and believing in magic and the unfathomable.  I love a good adventure and am very outdoorsie (more so in the summer admittedly).  I love listening to music (pretty much anything but generally rock music) My favourites include Halestorm, Avenged Sevenfold, Nickelback and Evanescence.  I am a self professed ink addict and to contradict the lot; a complete Disney nerd!!  Simba is my baby (Yes, 26 and I still sleep with a stuffed animal - he gives the best hugs!)



Thanks for stopping by and reading all about me and my crazy habits, I'd love to get to know my readers and followers, so please feel free to drop a comment on this post and introduce yourselves!

And remember, always take a moment to read!
