Follow Friday, 18+ Blogger Tag Along, Welcome!

Hello new and old visiters! Welcome to me own little slice of Bloglandia, Novel Addiction. My name is Amanda, and I review a little of everything, mostly Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy, and a mix of Young Adult fiction. I work as a Library Assistant at the Reference desk of my local library system, so I'm pretty much surrounded by books 24/7 - it's a good life.

Be sure to come back next Monday - author Jamie Magee will be giving away a print copy of her book "Insight" to one lucky winner! And there are even more great giveaways and posts coming up - be sure to check my "Upcoming Excitements" notifications on the righthand side. Make sure you follow Novel Addiction on Twitter @Novel_Addiction , find me on Goodreads , and you can grab my blog button on the right hand side (under my About Me section)!

And stay tuned - Novel Addiction might be getting its very own MASCOT. As soon as I find the proper image, he'll come by to introduce himself.. if I can make him, that is. Thank you for visiting! And if you have your own blog, be sure to leave a link/let me know, I always follow back.

Who are You the Girl, instead of You the Blogger? - I am Amanda, 23 years old, working in a library. I also sell Avon, have a writing group that is made up of myself and my friends and while we do some writing, mostly we use it as an excuse to meet up and have a good time. I also actively participate in theatre, I've recently been cast in "Urinetown." Which sounds gross, but the show is hilarious, a little dark, and just my kind of humor. 

Photobucket How many erotic books do you buy in a month? - Not many. I don't read a lot of strictly erotic books, I get my steamy scenes within romance. But I love love LOVE finding free erotic reads! I have tons from special promotions, etc - it's like my own secret treasure trove, and I can't wait to read them all, and discover new authors to love!

Book Blogger Hop If I gave you $80 dollars and sent you into the bookstore, what would be in your basket when you finally staggered to the till? - What a cool question! Let's see, "A Hundred Words for Hate" by Thomas Sniegoski, "A Discovery of Witches" by Deborah Harkness, "Not that Kind of Girl" by Siobhan Vivian, and the rest of it would be impulse Romance/YA buys, probably.

Happy Reading!
~!~ Amanda ~!~

Hi! I'm a new follower from the 18 & over tag along. I write romance (sometimes more erotic than sweet), so I probably buy/read more than most people.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Stop by if you get the chance.

Wow! What a great question this week. I always peek at other people's book piles at the checkout link at B&N. That doesn't make me a voyeur, does it?

The exhibitionist in me has posted my own bookstore shopping list -- and it's not as predictable as you may think!

Hop on over to my blog for all the suspense and chills of my TBR list -

Happy Hop Friday!

Hopping through. New follower! So cool that you do theatre. I've heard of Urinetown but I can't remember what it's about.
