The Ladies Behind Girls With Books

Posted July 31, 2012 by girlswit in Uncategorized / 4 Comments

Hello!  My name is Sarah and I’m from Las Vegas, NV.  I’m a stay at home mom to three kids and two dogs.  I love Twilight, the color pink, funky socks, Coach purses and books!  Some of my favorite authors are; JR Ward, Cassandra Clare, Richelle Mead and Larissa Ione.  I love Young Adult books, Paranormal Romance & Dystopian.  I’ll finish a book even if I find it horrible and it’s not holding my attention. One of my favorite series is the Black Dagger Brotherhood by JR Ward. What I like about it is that everyone of the brothers has an imperfection so it doesn’t make him the perfect person. The one liners that JR Ward adds to the story are so great that I sometimes find myself laughing out loud at them. Another one of my favorite series is The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. I can honestly say I have been a fan of these books back when it was just a trilogy. I can’t wait to see the movie and Jamie Campbell-Bower better do a damn good job playing Jace. 
Hey there! My name is Lisa and I’m from Wisconsin. I’m married and have one awesome son; I also work full-time as a social worker. I LOVE Twilight, writing, traveling, hats and reading. My favorite genres are Paranormal Romance, Young Adult, Horror and Dystopian. Some of my favorite authors are; Stephenie Meyer, P.C. And Kristen Cast, Stephen King and Charlaine Harris. I frequently will purchase a book because I love the cover. One of my favorite series is the House Of Night series. I love how that series pulled me right in within a few chapters of the first book. I found myself frequently shaking my head at some of Zoey’s decisions.  Another series that engulfed me was the Fallen series by Lauren Kate. I was overjoyed with the ending of the final book in the series, Rapture.

Sarah and I started this blog due to our love of books. We both challenged ourselves this year to read 100 books in 2012, and I have to say we are both on track to complete that goal. Since we both are new to blogging you will have to bare with us while we work out any kinks and find our way in this process.

Our blog name represents the power of books. It demonstrates how a girl can arm themselves with books and be able to defend themselves intellectually. We owe a special thanks to our dear friend, Alicia Walker, for making our blog edits.
