Blog Soulmate: Not Now...I'm Reading!

One day, Vanessa and I got to talking about how many really great blogs we follow that are owned by super great bloggers and how we wish the world knew about these awesome we came up with a way to do just that.

Starting today, every week we will select a new BLOG SOULMATE!

This is our way of telling them that, "Hey, we think you're cool and we love your blog and we want the world to know this!"

{Note: This is an exclusive award and not intended for being passed on. However, our chosen blog soulmates are welcomed to do a post on their own blogs letting their followers know that, well, we like them!}

Our first BLOG SOULMATE Award for this week goes to:

Jen D. from Not Now...I'm Reading!

We'd like for you guys to get to know Jen a little better, so we asked her a few questions.
So here's a peek inside Jen's mind:

How long have you been blogging?
So technically my first post went up on January 1, 2010, but my posting was so sporadic that I consider January 1, 2011 to be my actual start date. It's when I decided to buckle down and do this blogging thing for real.

What are your blogging or reading goals?
I'm a simple girl ya'll. If I can share some of my favorite reads and make some friends along the way then I'm a happy camper. This, for me, is a creative outlet more than anything so if you guys are diggin' my randomness and decide to try some of the books I post about then I feel like my job here is done.

Fave genres and books?
Favorite genres hands down are Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance, but I read a little of everything and am always up for trying something new. Favorite books is a little harder to answer. There's just too many that are near and dear to my heart.

What are some of your hobbies other than reading?
Some of my other hobbies include exercising (at least I'm trying to make it a hobby although lord knows it takes every ounce of my will power to keep at it), listening to music and picking the most inopportune moments to bust a move. What? I'm being for real. Once the beat of a song catches my attention there's no stopping me. I've been known to bust out in random acts of dance at home, at work, at the store, in the car...

Tell us something about you NON-book related.
Let's see...non-book related. Okay I'm going to put two things out there and to hell with the consequences. *deep breath and exhale* I have a bad ass collection of Marvel & DC comic cards. *blank stares* Um, okay think baseball cards but, with superheroes instead. I was obsessed with superheroes growing up. My sister, cousin and I collected them growing up but, managed to lose them over the years. So I decided to start collecting them again. I have 3 or 4 complete sets and I heart them with my entire being. Another thing I heart? My crazy makeup collection. I went through this phase where I was 110% sure that I wanted to be a makeup artist. It didn't really pan out but, I have tons of beautiful makeup to show for it. The ironic part is I don't wear much of it on the regular. Go figure. I never said I didn't have quirks.

Come to think of it I'm quite the walking contradiction...

So there you have it folks, Jen in a nutshell!  We love this girl and we hope that you'll swing by her blog, check out all her cool posts and maybe be enticed to follow her too!

PS: She has a brand spankin' new layout that was designed exclusively for her as a RAK courtesy of Isalys :)
