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.

Quick Thoughts On A Few Fabulous Novels

10 September 2018 Jackie 0

While going through my draft folder, I came across a few reviews that I started with a few thoughts, or saved a few tweets, and not much else. Now I could go back, re-read the book and write a proper review, but let’s be honest, it’s not happening. I currently […]

You Didn’t Like It? I Want To Know Why.

7 September 2018 Jackie 0

I was going through my draft folder and found this. I’ve been debating on whether I should post it or not. The reason, or the drama which prompted me to write it, has long passed us by; but the idea behind it is still something I believe in. People can […]
