Introducing our New Reviewers!

We would like to extend a warm welcome to two lovely ladies, Kaley and Sabrina-Kate, who are our new reviewers!  After weeding through multiple applications, we decided that they met our criteria and matched our review 'voice'.  So, without further ado, here's some info about them, which will also be posted in the About Us section.  Please drop a line and give them a warm welcome. Their first reviews will be posted shortly!


Hey there! My name's Kaley and I'm one of the new reviewers for Novel
Escapes. I want to say thanks to Lydia and Kathryn for giving me a chance
to write for them. Here's a little bit about me...

I've been surrounded by books for as long as I can remember. I credit my
mom with my love of reading. She never discouraged my sister and I from
reading even when we should have been doing something else, like cleaning
our room or doing our homework. My love of books even translated into my
first two jobs. I worked at my town's public library all through high
school and then worked at a bookstore while in university and just after I
graduated. My favourite thing about those jobs (and the only thing I miss,
if I'm being honest) was being able to talk about books to customers all
day. Writing reviews (both for Novel Escapes and my own blog) is a way for
me to continue that. I will happily chat about books to anyone who will
listen, and sometimes even to those who won't!

I will admit (quite proudly) that chick lit is my favourite genre. I think
this stems from wanting to read something light and fun in between all the
textbooks I had to read at university. I try to read other novels as well
but I always seem to come back to chick lit.

I try to keep my reviews light, clever, and funny. If I don't love a book I
will not bash it because I don't think that's fair to the author. I give my
honest opinion and let other readers make up their own minds.

I'm excited to get started writing reviews for Novel Escapes and I hope
you'll have as much fun reading my reviews as I have writing them!

I started loving books at a very young age. They were the
only thing that would keep me from screaming during family road trips and I
would look at the pictures until I learned how to read.

Always reading everything I could get my hands on, I remember
impatiently waiting for the Scholastic book package that I’d get every
summer for my summer reading. Characters like Booky, Fudge and Mary Lennox
opened my mind to a whole world of possibilities and stories.

Having adored books ever since, I always have a book (or several on
Kindle) with me at all times, even when out on a night out on the town!
