Welcome to Armchair BEA 2014!
This is my THIRD year participating!
I can't wait to see how much fun we will have this year!
Today, is introduction day. I've chosen (5) questions that best introduce me and my blog Gizmos Reviews!
1. Please tell us a little bit about yourself:
Who are you? ::waves:: Hello! My name is Shelley!
How long have you been blogging? June 21, will be 3 years of full time blogging.
Why did you get into blogging? I've been a member of Goodreads since 2009 where I posted a few thousand reviews before I decided to create Gizmos Reviews.
Where in the world are you blogging from? I am from Jacksonville, Florida, the land that no author dares to trend for fear of being left behind.
2. Describe your blog in just one sentence. Then, list your social details -- Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. -- so we can connect more online.
Gizmos Reviews is a fairly small, one person blog, that hangs in the background of the big boys and girls, taking it all in, while trying NOT to put my foot in my mouth too many times.

3. What genre do you read the most?
I love to read ALL sorts of genre's. Urban Fantasy, PNR, Steampunk, Historical Fantasy, Dystopian, Young Adult, Mystery, & Thrillers. I can't really say I have a favorite, or that I read more or one genre than another. I've gone from reading Steampunk one day, to Noir Fantasy another.
