I’m just a book lover who loves to talk about the books I’m reading. My husband doesn’t share all of the same tastes, so I like sharing with people who may have an interest in the same books that I do.
I’m an Engineer by day and a reader by night… lunchtime… in line at the grocery store… basically wherever I can get some pages in. Reading is a way for me to unwind and be transported to somewhere other than “here.” While I can appreciate the value of a good nonfiction book, it’s just not my cup of tea. I love to grab a good fiction book and take it all in. Sometimes the best remedy is curling up with a good, mushy, romance book. Sometimes I want to be on the edge of my seat wondering what will happen; and sometimes I want to be taken to an entirely different world with new creatures and ideas that I’ve never seen before. A combination of those is even better.
I’ve thought about starting a blog for a long time, but have finally reached a point that I want to try it. I also love to cook, and I am all about keeping my fingernails painted with fun things, so I’ve also thought about doing a blog for those, but books won out ultimately. Maybe in the future I can add on with another blog. The name inspiration for this blog came from our sweet puppy, Button. We call her Sweet Bear, Love Bear, Cuddly Bear, etc. “Cozy” stuck out in my mind because when I think of reading, I think of curling up in my favorite spot with a cup of coffee and great book. The “Bear” part was inspired by her.
Ever since I can remember, I have loved to read. My tastes have changed a lot since I got into reading, but I still get overly engrossed in a good book. I love being taken to a new world with each new story. It amazes me how some authors can make you feel the emotions of their characters so easily. There have been many nights that a great book has kept me up until the wee hours of the morning because I just couldn’t put it down. It’s a challenge these days between work, the husband, the puppy, and sleep. I’m hoping that having this blog gives me the push I need to get in that “me” time and get lots of reading in.
Grab a cup of coffee or tea and hopefully enjoy the many posts to come! Thanks for visiting!
I update my Goodreads page on what I’m currently reading, and sometimes that will get updated before I post reviews on here. If you’d like to friend me on Goodreads, feel free. 🙂
