About My Reading Nook

Welcome! Come on in and get comfy.

I’m Colette, but you can call me Coco. I read a little bit of everything — romance, literary fiction, memoirs/biographies, mystery, psychological thrillers, you name it! I’m not too much into historical, paranormal or dystopian fiction, but will give it a go if it comes highly recommended, so if you know of a book that I absolutely need to read, hit me up on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram and let me know!

My Reading Nook started as a romance blog back in late 2012 while I was out of work. As anyone who has been unemployed can tell you, job hunting can be frustrating and tedious, so reading became my escape at the end of the day. I’ve been an avid romance reader since I was a teen; with more time I went from reading a couple of books a month to double digits. Eventually, I wanted a place where I could discuss with other romance readers and the official My Reading Nook blog was born on Tumblr. I officially moved the blog to WordPress in May 2015 and WHOA 😱 😱 😱 😱 😱, this little blog was opened up to a new world.

In 2017, I decided to bid adieu to the world of book blogging and reviewing. You can read more about it here. This was not an easy decision, nor one that I take lightly.  Along the way, there have been so many fellow bloggers, readers, and authors who supported me and My Reading Nook. For them, I am forever grateful; I can’t begin to express how much their support has meant to me. 😘

If you are an author or fellow reader/lover of multicultural romance, you should visit my beloved sistren and fellow book bloggers to get your fix for reviews, promos, and book news! I leave you in very capable hands for all your romance needs.

You can still find me talking about books on one of the aforementioned social media channels.  Hit me up any time, with book recs or just to say hi!

P.S. We’re all grown here, I hope!  18+ audiences only, please.
