  • I'm Loving ♥ Books
  • I'm Loving ♥ Books


I’m Loving ♥ Books was opened on May 1, 2011. My reviews go back farther than that because I transferred them over from my Goodreads account, which I’ve been reviewing on since 2009. All my older reviews (more than a year ago) aren’t necessarily anything to brag about, but to be thorough I decided to transfer them over anyways.

I decided to create this blog because I truly love to read and write reviews. But, not only that, I love to talk about books! I wanted to create a place to share any and everything about the books I love. But what really makes a blog like this possible is the people. Please don’t hesitate to leave a comment or drop me a line. It’s the community that makes this fun!

As of now, I am the one and only reviewer for I’m Loving  ♥ Books. Right now I’d like to keep it that way because it makes things more personal I think. In general I read and review about a book every other day. There are times when my reviews are more like four days apart, but not all the time. In between though, I will be posting book related features, giveaways, interviews and more! So be sure to bookmark us or add our site to your RSS feed in order to keep up with what’s going on.

About Sarah:

Hi there! I’m Sarah and I’m the brains behind this operation. I’m a web designer by trade and I’m lucky enough to work from home where I can have time for all the other endeavors I love to get myself wrapped up in. I’m married to the love of my life and we live on a small four acre farm. Sure, it’s small (for a farm), but we manage to have a huge vegetable garden and about eight chickens. It’s fun, but can also be  a lot of work. So it’s nice that my hubby does most of the gardening/chickening.

I’m more of an indoor girl myself. I love to read (duh), but when I’m not reading I love to decorate our house and try out new diy projects to make our house a home, or “nesting” as my hubby so lovingly puts it. :)

We are childless as of now, but in the future we do plan on having kids. For now, we’re happy with our little yorkie-poo who is both rambunctious and cuddly. I like to call him my practice child, although I swear I will never “kennel” my child at night! lol

    Hi Sarah! You've got such a nice blog. I'm taking up Multimedia Arts right now and so I would learn Web designing. I hope to learn a lot and have a blog as cool as yours! I used some of you Mini Banners and Sticker. Do you mind? Sorry for not asking permission earlier.

  8. Giselle says:

    I love that you're also a web designer. I am too..Your blog is so pretty! I'm still new at WordPress and book blogging but I'm learning lol I'm definitely going to be back soon!

    • Glad to meet you too Giselle, and thank you! You'll get the hang of it real quick. WordPress is just awesomesauce. So, so flexible. :) I hope you enjoy book blogging as well! It's a great community to be apart of. The only problem is that it can get very addicting! lol

    I've had on my blog a different pages that listed my reviews based on different things (Author, rating, and book title. I recently got into updating my blog with a lot of plugins and ways to make it easier on myself. I just came across you're blog and I saw how you had the page of Authors and you have it so it's all separated by what the first letter of the term is, then lists all the posts. I have mine similar except I want to be able to do the anchors like you have for yours so it's easier for people search. I was wondering if you used a plugin for it or did you manually add them each time you added a review or what? Thanks so much!

    • I didn't use a plugin or do it manually (well, I used to do it manually but not anymore). I created something custom cause I couldn't find a plugin to do it. But basically I went through the wordpress loop and adjusted it to print out like that. If you're familiar with php and wordpress it's pretty easy (although time consuming lol) to come up with. If you're not then I would suggest looking up tutorials on how to manipulate the loop to do what you want. Good luck! :)

        I've been using php for mine and had a custom template for each page and had it grab the taxonomy, then list all the terms that had posts, then listing the post in each, I've just been at a loss as to how to have sections for each letter so then I could make the anchors. Did you figure it out on your own or did you find a tutorial?

I hope you don't mind if I use your banners and such, I also put your blog button onto my blog so everyone (like 1 follower) will see it…haha its sad but I just started a month ago so I'm hoping for the best.
