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 the contact button in the menu 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 few 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.
There’s a special place in my heart for the work of multicultural and indie authors. That’s not to say that I never read books by traditionally-published, mainstream authors but a vast majority of authors/books I feature here will fall into the former categories. Although various genres will be featured frequently, contemporary romance novels from a variety of subgenres – everything from the sweet to the not-so-sweet erotica — will continue to be the mainstay of My Reading Nook.
If I can spark a lively discussion about the books I love (or don’t) and make you chuckle in the process, I’ve done what I came to do! Feel free to leave comments often. If you disagree, I only ask that you be respectful to me and other commenters.
Enjoy your visit. Come back often to see what’s new!
Coco 💋 💋 💋
P.S. We’re all grown here, I hope! 18+ audiences only, please.
