Introducing Justine from Bex ‘N Books

Posted on: December 4, 2013

Justine – Chief Admin of Bex ‘n’ Books AKA Bex’s Sidekick

What inspired you/caused you to start your book blog? 

Becky stalked me. Not really, but it all happened pretty damn quick. I was a follower of Bex ‘n’ Books and Becky (aka. Bex) put out a call for reviewers. I had developed a love for reading at a later age and was gobbling down about a book a day, subconsciously making up for lost time. Needless to say, reviewing was cheaper than a 12-step program, so I decided to PM her. We MS’d for a few hrs. Then out of nowhere, she pops the question, “Will you admin for me?” I thought she was a nutbag, but I said yes anyway (hmmm…what’s that say about me?). The rest is history, well documented by Facebook.

What is your favorite part of running one?

I suffer from bouts depression, am a stay home mother of 4. I don’t drive. My husband is my only live friend since we moved over 4 yrs ago to a new state, so I knew no one, plus we live in the mountains 20 min. from EVERYTHING!!

Becky have given me an outlet of expression, wonderful new friends (some have even become my best friends even though I will probably never meet them), and a purpose. One of the major causes of my depression is the fact that I don’t work and my husband works like a dog to pay for EVERYTHING! I feel like I’m not doing my part and contributing. Unlike some, I love working and contributing to the household. The kids are too young to leave, and Marc’s head would explode if he had to spend more than 4 hrs alone with the kids, also Marc can make 3x what I could if he takes overtime instead of me working.

The blog and FB page have given me an outlet to funnel this issue I have and a feeling as though I am contributing to something. It means the world me.

Favorite book to movie adaption?

It’s a tie

Alice (2009) the TV Mini-Series


Pride & Prejudice (2005) the movie

If you could meet any author, who would it be?

Kristen Ashley. ……. Then again, I’d probably have biggest FANgasim and embarrass myself.

Coolest author you ever got to meet/work with?

AJ Lape, she’s a big old dork like me!

Kindle or regular book? How did you feel about the Kindle to book transition? Did you fight it at first or dive right in?

I started my reading on my desktop, so I didn’t have any real transition. If I know I will want to savour a book, I will get it in paperback; I read CRAZY fast on my iPad.

Favorite book of all time?

Well, that would be books….

The Rock Chick Series by Kristen Ashley. Followed by her Dream Man Series in a VERY close second place.

Is there a fiction genre you just can’t seem to stand or get into? For me, heavy science fiction is just a no-go.

Dystopia!!! ….. I am also very picky about my paranormal reads:

No aliens

No voodoo

No Horror

I know there are a few more….. Guess you can see I’m a HUGE pain in Becky’s ass!

When I say favorite book cover, what’s the first one to come to mind – since I know there probably can’t be just one?

Grade ‘A’ Stupid by AJ Lape

Do you prefer a bunch of quick, sweet stand-alone reads or a long drawn out series of epic proportions?

It really depends on my mood and the author. I try to keep it mixed up; otherwise, I tend to find myself in a book-funk.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

A three-month tour of Ireland, England, and Scotland. Why three months? Simple, I want to savour each country.

Guardian Blurb

Lyla Evans just wants to be left alone; to fly under the radar and not attract attention. After seventeen years, she knows how the game is played. Her parents are hardly ever home, and when they do show up, they’re quick to anger and even quicker with their fists. With foster care comes the threat of being separated from her two younger siblings, and Lyla would die before allowing that to happen. She’s learned to keep her head down and depend on no one but herself and God to get by.

When a strange man starts paying too much attention to her and her siblings, showing up to rescue them and then disappearing without a trace, Lyla begins to panic that everything she’s been hiding is about to come out. But as she slowly becomes friends with Rafael and even trusts him with her deepest fears, Lyla learns he has secrets far bigger than her own that will turn everything in her world upside down.

In this story of abuse and rescue, love and faith, angels and demons, an unlikely friendship grows into a fantastical love story appealing and appropriate for readers young and old alike.
