Meet our new review associate!

When we had our associate reviewer contest last year, we mentioned that there was a runner up. Even though our current associates aren't going anywhere (at least they'd better not), we've had such an abundance of review requests that we thought adding a reviewer would accommodate that. We decided to ask our runner up, Kathryn Hamilton, if she was still interested. She said YES!!!

Keep in mind, we may have another contest to add on another reviewer, but nothing is certain yet.

For now, it's time to get to know Kathryn a little better...

Three of your favourite chick lit authors:

Marian Keyes, Jennifer Weiner, and Jodi Picoult. Also really loved Gemma Burgess and can't wait to read more by her.

Chick lit novel you want to see on the big screen:

Anything by Jodi Picoult. "A Girl Like You" by Gemma Burgess would be hilarious... think Bridget Jones kind of funny.

Which book has had an impact on you?

"Firefly Lane" by Kristin Hannah.

Something about you that would surprise people:

I take weekly Belly dance and Bollywood classes (which in no way involves a pole... don't ask). Another thing that surprises people is the fact that I love True Blood (this shocked even my brother).

Some of your hobbies:

Aside from the above dance classes, when my sometimes ridiculous work schedule allows, I also love to read (of course), catch up on tv shows online (I guess that's not much of a hobby), cross-stitch, relaxing with my feline fur baby Abby, listening to music, chatting with friends, and Facebook (I also have a slight addiction to PerezHilton.com).

Favourite place to vacation:

Unfortunately I haven't had the opportunity to travel much, but I absolutely fell in love with British Columbia when I went there for a wedding in 2000. Places I would love to travel to: Scotland, Australia, and the rest of Canada.

If you want to connect with Kathryn, visit her on Facebook and Twitter.

Welcome Kathryn. You know I was just thinking about Firefly Lane yesterday. I had read it awhile back but the story crept into my mind. It was my second book by Kristin Hannah and it also had an impact on me. I still haven't read any book by Jodi Picoult but I'm planning to soon. I see her books everywhere.
