About Me

Hello!  My name is Andrea. I work at a library as a Library Assistant, but IKiddo and Me pic 2016 have a Bachelor’s degree in English, with an emphasis on Creative Writing.

I’ve always loved to write, and to read.  For the past few years I’ve been reading a lot more than I’ve been writing.  I started this book blog in 2012 to share my thoughts on the books that I’m reading, and also to keep myself writing consistently, even if it’s not in fiction form.

I mostly read Young Adult books, so this blog focuses on YA. However, I occasionally like to read Adult and Middle Grade books, and I also have a feature called Kiddo’s Corner Reviews, where my son reviews picture books and early reader books.  I’m a huge spoilerphobe so my reviews will not have spoilers for the most part, but if they do, spoilers will be clearly marked.

Profile Pic 2016A little more about me, personally:  I have two awesome kids and an amazing wife. I am a huge Harry Potter nerd.  I have two cats named after HP characters. I love playing pool (billiards), and have been on several teams over the past 18 years. I also love to play video games and solve logic problems and crossword puzzles, etc. And I still hope to one day be a published author. I’m currently working on a YA Fantasy book, and a YA Horror book.
