Armchair BEA Introduction

This is my first Armchair BEA. This is a new blog but I've been posting all my book reviews on Soon as I started this blog the first post was about a book. Most likely, this will be a book blog.:)
Who Am I?
My friends call me T. I am a 20 something college graduate who loves to read. Ever since I was 4, I have always loved the library. I like all kinds of genres. I'm not too picky. I like chick lit, non-fiction, romance, and mystery. Also, I'm discovering YA. I just stumbled upon BEA on twitter and got excited. It's like I finally found my people. Books are the best way to relax and escape.
How Do I Armchair?
Sitting down.

What I'm Reading

Hey ya'll! I've been reading Bright Lights, Big A** by Jen Lancaster. It's a funny book so far. I always like reading Jen's books because of her sense  of humor. She's sarcastic and witty. In the book, I'm at the point where she is describing how her and her husband, Fletch, are very competitve. They're sort of violent. It's funny. So that's what I'm reading.

This is my first post. Yay me!:)
