About

So you want to know a little about this website you've stumbled onto, huh? Okay. You asked for it...

The Blog:
Reading the Paranormal is run by Kelly, book addict and certified #GutterPass-er. It went live in September of 2010 and is a review centered book blog with focuses on Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy, Horror, Sci-Fi, Young Adult, New Adult, and the (sometimes more than) occasional erotica book. All reviews are based on how much Kelly personally enjoyed the book. There does tend to be quite a bit of flailing and CAPS LOCKING when she gets excited. Just so you know.

The biggest question you might have at this point is: Why is Kelly talking about herself in the 3rd person? The answer is: NO ONE KNOWS!

The current schedule for the blog is as follows:
Monday: Review
Tuesday: Top Off Tuesday/Review
Wednesday: Review
Thursday: Review
Friday: Review
Saturday: Blog Housekeeping/Spotlight On...
Sunday: RtP Week in Review

The lady behind the curtain:
I'm Kelly. I'm a mom, reader, writer, and Kindle-lover who happens to have a dirty, slightly sarcastic bent. I'm *cough*mildly*cough* obsessed with Rehvenge from J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series, I get overly excited about sexy sci-fi, I've been known to spam Twitter with pictures of spam (nah, I'm kidding about that one. Maybe.), and I have a hard time passing up a good challenge.

I love books. I love writing. I try to steer clear of drama. I embrace the idea that all of us out there who love books are a community (whether we're bloggers, readers, or authors) and we need to support and encourage one another.

Books that involve alien lovin', tentacles doing inappropriate things to unsuspecting individuals, demons, dragons, #NakedWerewolves, and two people being unexpectedly snowed in (or trapped by a sandstorm, a meteor shower, a case of virulent amnesia, or anything that requires quality one on one time with loads of sexual tension) tend to get high marks from me. I like what I like and I won't apologize for it.

On top of all that, I'm a co-host of Bout of Books, a 3x a year week-long read-a-thon that brings together readers from around the world. During the off-season, I admin #boutofbooks-ers, the FB group connected to the read-a-thon. (Ask to join. It'll be FUN!)

When I'm not doing the crazy reading thing, you can find me writing. I published my first book in 2013 and my dirty demon is happy to have seen the light of day. Check out KellyApple.com for more information on my alter ego.
