About Jackie

I am a 30-something SAHM with two adorable boys and a supportive husband who is very tolerant of my reading addiction. I love to read and easily go through about a dozen books a month – well I did before I had kids. Now, not so much. After my first son was born, I began to take my hobby of reviewing a little more serious and started Literary Escapism to help with my sanity. I love to discuss the fabulous novels I’ve read and meeting all the wonderful people in the book blogging community has been amazing.

I want more dragon romances! The werewolves and werecats are nice, but they’ve flooded the market and it can be hard to find other shifters. Thankfully Coastal Magic just happened, and while I was there, I discovered J.D. Monroe and her Dragons of Ascavar series. Guess what…it’s a dragon romance! […]
