Reader Spotlight: The Cat's Meow

This year, we're doing "Reader Spotlight" posts on a bi-weekly basis. We want to feature readers who have been actively following CLC for a while. We're hoping you can get to know some new friends this way. One of the joys of having CLC is that readers have connected with each other, as a result. That's one of the reasons it was started up in the first bring chick lit fans together from all over the world! We've made some amazing friends because of this blog and we hope you'll get to do so too!

If you'd like to be spotlighted sometime this year, please contact us.

See our previous Reader Spotlight posts.

Note from Melissa A: Janine is one of the nicest people I know. I connected with her last year when she first started entering giveaways. We have a lot of author interests in common and I've had fun getting to know her better. Her dedication to cats (her own and the ones at the rescue shelter where she volunteers) is amazing.

Name: Janine Rowe

Age: 49

Location: Mesquite, Texas

How did you find Chick Lit Central? 
We have a mutual friend, Marlene. She told me about Chick Lit Central (before she had her own blog, Book Mama). She told me how I could find out about lots of great new books and authors on your site. And she was very right.

What are your top FIVE favorite chick lit novels of all time? 
This is a tough one as I have so many favorites. Flirting With Forty by Jane Porter, Lake Como by Anita Hughes, She's Gone Country by Jane Porter, The Lake House by Marci Nault, and In Need Of Therapy by Tracie Banister.

What do you do when you're not reading?
I am a housewife, so cleaning, laundry and cooking are my main priorities. I also enjoy doing fundraisers for a cat rescue in my town. I have had a love for cats as long as I can remember. So, when the chance came to help out, I jumped on it. When my husband isn't working, I like doing things with him and spending time with our three very spoiled cats. When I have a little bit of extra money, I enjoy going shopping.

If anyone wants to contact me through Facebook, they can find me here.

Thank you! It's never been a secret. I have always loved reading. The hardest part was picking only 5 favorite books.
