Getting To Know You Blog Hop + Giveaway!!

getting-to-know-you Hi! I’m Natasha and I run Caught Up In Books. I thought this would be a good way to get my blog out there since I am new to the scene. I have had this blog up and running for two and a half months so far and let me say I never thought it would go like this. I have made a few friends but am looking forward to making many more. I love this idea because it helps newcomers like me make an entrance into this world so that we don’t feel like we are out of the loop so to speak.

In my personal life I work at Kroger grocery store. I work two over nights a week hanging price tags throughout the store and the other days I work either evenings or all day saturdays as a cashier. I also have two beautiful girls ages 6 and 5 and a wonderful husband who I have been married to a little over a year now. In my spare time I am definitely reading. The first book I ever read that sparked my reading fire is The Secret Garden by Frances Hodges Burnett. After that I just read it didn’t matter what it was. Although I let my reading fire pilfer out a few times in my life where I took a turn but as you can see I have come back to reading with a new found passion. I love going on all different adventures and meeting all kinds of different people. I have lived a thousand lives to my one actual one all through the many many books I have read. I hope my girls love to read as much as I do as they get older. (fingers crossed)

Now onto books… My favorite genres are very wide and spread out because I have found that I have liked at least one book in every genre. I love any book that doesn’t take place in this day and age, (Delirium, Night of Pan, or Catch Me When I Fall), romance authors such as Maya Banks, Tara Sue Me, and E.L. James. and I love YA of any kind plus others.

    1. The Prophecy is an amazing book that grabs your attention right from the start and doesn’t let go at all. I would definitely say that it could be ages 12 and above. It is an action filled just all around excellent book!!!


  1. Hi Natasha and welcome to the blogging world. The Rafflecopter box doesnt pop up because you’re running a site, and they restrict what they call “active links”. It does help the pages load faster, so it’s not all bad. Us blogging people are very used to it, so don’t worry.

    I haven’t read any of these so I hope I win one of them… but my TBR list is so long already….

    good luck
