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, crafting, creating, & life in general.

I also love my husband, best friend, and Schmoopy, David, and our fluffy meow, 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) when I’m mad, happy, excited, bored, and even sometimes in my sleep.

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.

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 given merchandise. I’ll certainly never give a good review for a product! If I get something for free, I’ll let you know. Otherwise, I just like it or love it enough to let you know about it. If you ever have any questions, just ask!

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