About Me: My name is Shannah Mauney. I work full time at a bank, and enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I love, love, love to read. Reading became a big part of my life in 2009 when my first husband joined the military and went off to bootcamp. What's a girl to do with all that free time?! Then, it became my escape when the unthinkable happened and I became a 23 year old widow. Reading was my outlet, my escape from reality. Now, reading is my adventure. I love sitting down to read with a bowl of popcorn, diving into a story headfirst!
The Lord has blessed me tremendously by bringing another great man into my life. I met my husband in 2010, we started dating in 2011, got engaged in 2013, and married on September 13, 2014. I love him dearly because he loves me and he respects the memory of my first husband. He is more than I ever dreamed I deserved. I'm happy to announce we're expecting our first child in September 2017!
The only thing more important to me than my husband, family, and my friends, is my Savior. He loves me unconditionally. He will never leave me or forsake me and he never disappoints me. I'm not perfect. I make mistakes every day. I fail Him over and over but He loves me anyway.
Why I Blog: I decided to start this blog because a lot of people ask me about books that I've read and would recommend. I will be honest and objective about my opinions of the books. I am open to any suggestions on books to read as well. Since I changed the name to "Faith * Love * Books" I have decided to branch out in what I write posts about. Newer posts will include things about my Faith, my life, and the things I love (besides reading). Don't worry though! I'll still be reading and reviewing books!
My goal in writing this blog is not to become a professional book reviewer or lifestyle blogger. Unfortunately, I don't have the time or the talent for that. I would, however, like to improve my blogging skills. If any of you faithful blog readers have any suggestions for me, I welcome them!
