About

I’m Mandee. I love books and I love bling!

My wish is that I inspire you to read some amazing books & travel on this journey with me as I write about reading.

I also love my husband, best friend, and Schmoopy, David, and our silly meow kitty, Shakespeare.

I’m really good at breaking things, getting lost, drinking coffee, making up new words (aka-totally saying things wrong), eating ice cream, and forgetting things that I should always remember. I am a reformed Valley Girl from New Jersey (yes, I hung out down the shore a lot). That means I say like (like a lot) and I’m always trying not to cuss, especially when I’m mad, happy, excited, bored, and even sometimes in my sleep.

Books and Bling is a fun place where I will post reviews of books and pictures of those books with my Bling. If you’re an author or a publisher, see my Review Policy.

Notes & Disclaimers:

I do participate in the Amazon Affiliates program. If you purchase a book from one of my links, I will get compensation for that purchase. I use this money to support this site, buy more books to read, and for giveaways. This has never actually happened, but apparently it is a real thing.

Sometimes publishers, authors, or companies send me books/products to review. I always give my honest opinion in all of my reviews. I do not get paid for reviewing anything, but am sometimes compensated in merchandise. I do make note of this in my reviews.

If you have any questions about any of my policies or procedures or you’d like to contact me for a review, please send an email to: booksandbling@gmail.com
