My name is Melanie Charlesworth and I am a mother of boy/girl twins. I live in Southern New Jersey with my kids, husband of 15 years and three dogs. I recently
started writing reviews for Stories & Swag and decided to give it a try myself! Update – I am now an administrator for the Stories & Swag Facebook page!
I am also c0-owner and partner in Heaven Sent Promotions when we host blog tours, cover reveals, release day blitz and an assortment of other services. We also provide street team management!
I inherited my love of reading from my mom when I was a young teenager. The first book I ever read was Flowers in the Attic by VC Andrews and I was hooked.
My reading obsession didn’t get crazy until my mom gave me the original Kindle Fire for Christmas. At first I just used it to watch movies and check my email
because I liked “real” books. Then, I started hearing all of this hype for The Hunger Games and figured that I would give it a try….then I read the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy and it just grew from there. Now, in addition to the original Fire, I have the Fire HD 32gb, the original Paperwhite, and the Kindle app on my phone so that no matter where I am I can read!
I love to escape into someone else’s world, someone else’s experiences, someone else’s life. I love to feel what they feel whether it be happiness, sadness, confusion or pain.
I love falling in love with the characters and I refer to myself as an angst whore.
My favorite books are the ones that really make me feel like; Hopeless by Colleen Hoover, Arsen by Mia Asher, the Thoughtless series by S.C. Stephens , Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire, Falling into You by Jasinda Wilder, the Undeniable series by Madeline Sheehan, and the Crossfire series by Sylvia Day to name a few.
