I Read an eclectic mix of books including speculative fiction (adult & young adult) - fantasy, horror, science fiction, dystopian, apocalyptic, post-apocalyptic and alternate history. But lately, historical fiction & mysteries have been rocking my World too.

I am especially passionate about speculative fiction books written by authors of color and books written by authors from countries all over the World (what I call Olympics Reading). I do NOT accept advanced reader copies of books, but DO accept final copies of books featuring people of color on the cover, or written by a person of color.

I LOVE the outdoors, and most weekends you can find me exploring NY - running, biking or my latest obsession - Geocaching!

Girlxoxo (GXO) is where I share my passions, and hopefully inspire you to find yours. In real life, I could talk to you for ages about what YOU like to do - fly fishing, obstacle races, knitting, backpacking ... whatever - because the thing I most admire in people, is how they LIVE their lives. Let's talk ... I'd love to here about your trail runs, kayaking, bird watching adventures, etc.
