About Me

Hi!  I'm Lilly, and Lilly Road is my blog!

This blog was started because I wanted to keep track of the books that I've read and be able to reference them in the future.  Bonus?  I get to connect with other book lovers like myself.  I don't think I've ever met as many people as love books as I have during the past few months.  This is just amazing.

Anyway....I'm assuming you want to know a little about me?  If you don't, then you're on the wrong page! :)

The YA genre has been particularly grabbing my attention this year.  I have an amazing boyfriend.  I have an unhealthy obsession with books.  I spend most of my free time reading and doing other hobbies such as crocheting and sewing.  I LOVE to sit outside with a good book and hang out BUT I live in WI...this means I get maybe two months of great sitting outside weather.

I'm likely to laugh inappropriately and giggle when I shouldn't.  You'll find me in a corner of a room taking in my surroundings rather than being the one surrounded by people (sounds creepy, doesn't it?).  I'm a coffee drinker at heart <3.  I enjoy three cups a day steadily from my Keurig!  Three travel mugs that is.  I'm also a major dog lover!  Here's a picture of my awesome furry friends Chevy & Daisy!! 

Chevy is a 2 year old Springer Spaniel mix.  She has an awesome personality and can usually be found curled up next to me or trying to get her large self on my lap.  She loves to play fetch and catch! Daisy is a 4 year old Dachshund who is typically curled up under a blanket by my feet.  She's the leader of the two and has an obsession with loofah dogs (particularly the squeakers).  Each dog holds a special place in my heart and are like children to me!

I'm hoping to promote reading and introduce readers to new books.  I also love receiving recommendations from other readers as to what I should check out.  I just want to have some fun and make this a place where I can openly express my feelings about the books I read!

Where do my books come from?

Most of my books have been coming from the library.  I also purchase books and am open to receiving books from the publishers.  I recently discovered the website netGalley, which has helped my book addiction tremendously.

 Anything else you want to know?  Just ask me!  I like to consider myself an open-book :)
