About The Book Vixen


Brianna created The Book Vixen in August 2009 to share her love of smutty romance novels. The main romance genres we explore, but are not limited to, are: contemporary romance, historical romance, m/m romance, new adult, paranormal romance, and romantic suspense. In March of 2012, J9 came on board to share her love of reading. I am lucky to not only have J9 be a part of this blog but to have her as a friend as well. In December 2013, Sara joined the blog as a guest reviewer.

The Book Vixen is home to the Outdo Yourself, Men in Uniform, Nicholas Sparks, Romantic Suspense, Contemporary Romance, and Read Your Freebies! reading challenges. We also host the monthly Write On Review-a-Thon, a 2-day event to catch up on writing those reviews that have been piling up. We enjoy participating in the Thursday Thirteen meme and also like sharing interesting links we come across in our In My Pocket posts.

I’m a thirty-something wife and mama to 3 mini bookworms. I am a recovering chocoholic with OCD tendencies who lives in sunny California. I’m addicted to Kindle deals and freebies and I am never without my Kindle or iPad. I'm more interested in reading for entertainment than in greatness and I prefer ebooks over print.

My current favorite romance genres to read are: contemporary romance, romantic suspense (though I am getting a little burned out with this one), new adult, and MC romance. I hardly ever read nonfiction but when I do it’s usually of the true crime variety, a biography of an interesting-to-me person, or a reference book (I crave learning).

Some of my auto-reads include: anything by Nicholas Sparks (he writes it, I read it; I don’t even have to read the blurb.), the Elemental Assassin series by Jennifer Estep, the Fool’s Gold series by Susan Mallery, and the Kowalski Family series by Shannon Stacey.

When I’m not reading, I’m probably watching The Blacklist, Orange is the New Black, Scandal, and/or Sons of Anarchy.

Fun Facts:

  • I saw Candace Bushnell at a book signing once. I bought a copy of the book she was promoting, One Fifth Avenue, for her to sign, though I haven’t read it yet. It was totally a ‘right place at the right time’ moment that I was lucky enough to have happen to me.
  • I was not always an avid reader. I didn’t like reading much when I was a kid. The first time I experienced a ‘book crack’ high was when I read the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling at the age of 22.
  • The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks paved the way for romance novels for me. I glommed up most of his books right after reading The Notebook, though I still need to read The Wedding, Three Weeks With My Brother, and Safe Haven (though I have seen the movie).
  • The Twilight Saga was my gateway to Young Adult and Paranormal Romance books. And it’s a miracle I even read the books because I was so dead set against vampires.

"Hold on…let me finish this page first" has been my mantra since childhood. I enjoy reading historical romance, mm romance, and paranormal romance and rarely read anything other than an ebook. I am a transplant to the Midwest after growing up on the East Coast in New York and Vermont. When not reading, I enjoy eating and running—so I can eat more.
