About Me

Hi, my name is Isabelle.
I'm 38 years old.
I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
I'm hapilly married with 3 kids (15, 13, 10), too many animals and an in-house-library full of books.

When I was just a kid my mom had all this romance books around and I started reading them, whitout her knowledge, when I was only 10 years old.
I remember my first romance book: a Portuguese printed version of Janet Dailey's Silver Wings, Santiago Blue

This book started me on my wonderful journey with romance novels.

When I was a teen I moved  to the United States and finished high school there. After, HS I went on and attended university majoring in English. 
I went through all stages of a book-maniac, I loved lit, but romance was always my choice for a good time.

While in the States, I met my own ALPHA MALE, in my own romantic story.

I moved back to Brazil in 2001, but my passion for romance novels and my habit of reading it in English stayed with me.

My middle son has ADHD, which has given me years of practice  ADHD children. Finally, 3 years ago I've founded my own non-profittable organization and I've been working with ADHD children and their families. I feel blessed daily with all their love and positive energy.

I've decided to create this blog after I've joined Goodreads. By reading others readers's reviews, I have found new genres, new authors and many new books.
I'm always changing and improving my reviews, but I have based it's style on Mary's Menage Review, because I love her style of writing.

When I'm not reading, I'm either watching tv series with my daughter, on a jogging or spinning class with my friends, at a restaurant with my husband, at the beach with my sons, or at the movies with my entire family.
Oh, my family also share a passion for traveling, so we are always globetrotting on any vacation we got.
