About Us

  Hi! My name is Amanda Jane if that wasn't obvious. I am a mom of 4 wonderful children. Sometimes it is hard for me to find the time to read, but I try every day. When I am not reading and blogging about what I read, I am crocheting or working as an independent consultant for Jamberry.
   I honestly believe that everyone is a reader they just haven't found their story yet. My stories are usually paranormal romance but I will read almost anything. Yes, there are books that I will not read.I prefer everyone being in love and all that romance nonsense you hear people talk about all the time.
   How did I get started in blogging? I met the amazing and awesome author Robin Burks and after speaking with her she said you should share your love of reading with everyone and start a blog. That was in 2015! I took her advice and here we are.
    Please enjoy yourself while visiting Country Reads.

            Amanda is the author of the Realm of Nightmares Series. She lives in the Rhondda Valleys of South Wales with her partner. For most of the time when she is not writing, she is usually lost in the world of peer reviews for many of her author friends. Amanda enjoys all genres of the book world but has a particular passion for the world of horror.

     Hi, my name is Michele Del Rey. I am from Pennsylvania. I love books, have since I was 16. My first novel ever was Danielle Steel and I found it in my mom's closet. I love lighthouses and my niece Abigail. My obsession is Jamie Dornan, I have seen 50 shades 1 and 2 about 200 times no lie. Thank you and happy reading.


  1. Review Request "So I Might Be A Vampire" By Rodney V. Smith

    Dear Amanda Jane,

    My name is Rodney V. Smith, and my novel, So I Might Be a Vampire, has just been published by Lost Bajan Publishing. The release date is set for February 13, 2018. Given your love of the paranormal, I thought my novel might be right up your alley.

    So I Might Be a Vampire tells the story of newly minted vampire Bob, who is not having the greatest time adapting to his new life as a vampire.

    Everybody hopes that if they somehow get transformed into a vampire, they will instantly become some kind of superhero vampire out of the movies. Bad news guys: not gonna happen. More likely than not, you’re gonna be one of the poor clueless bastards hanging out on Thursday nights with Bob in his vampire support group.

    You may think you know what being a vampire is supposed to be like, but Bob is here to set you straight. He’s made it his personal mission to get answers about the reality of being a vampire. He’s been shot, stabbed, thrown off rooftops, survived bad coffee and endured crippling boredom - all in the name of answering the eternal question of what it means to be a vampire.

  2. Hello,

    I found your blog on Book Blogger List, under Horror.

    I see you do author spotlights.

    Do you ever do cover reveals, release blitzes, or promo tour posts?

    My next book, The Crossing, is releasing on Jan. 5 and I am looking for blogs interested in the above.

    If you could let me know if that sounds like something you would be interested in, I would appreciate it.

    I look forward to your response, and thank you for considering my request.

    All the best,

    E. H. James

  3. Hello there!

    Hope you are doing good. I have a request for you. I have a new upcoming book called

    Incrusted: Hiding the demon within

    I was hoping you could review it. It is an arc copy.. here is the book preview

    My bewildered eyes flickered with an orange glow as something inside
    me craved for another drop of blood. The red liquid's rusty and salty
    taste was nothing less than heaven to me...wait..what heaven? there
    wasn't any heaven for someone like me...

    Yes, I was that unique breed, the 'werepire' a rare and powerful one
    that was made from a deadly and impossible combination. My powers
    could destroy all the night creatures of this world. I was nothing
    more than a sin to them.

    My life was at peace when I was just an innocent college going girl;
    soon things turned upside down when a handsome vampire saw a side of
    me that no one could ever fathom. His sexy charms took my breath away.
    I fell for him hard and fast, without having the slightest idea that
    he was only designed to kill.

    At the other end was another night creature, the successor of the
    werewolf clan, he too had his eyes on me. His raw, rugged look and
    caring persona made me feel safe...but how could I be sure that he
    wasn't an enemy?

    I am desperately trying to seek some answers, whilst my unknown
    enemies are on the prowl to destroy me, if I want to survive them, I
    need to know myself first.

    Join Ingrid in her exciting game of life and death and see how she
    plays with her own fate!

    Please let me know where to send the free copy, I will be more than happy to send you the book. The book is available in pdf/mobi/epub formats.
    My book is scheduled to be launched on 16 Jan 2016. I hope you can find time in your schedule to finish it before. However, it is a short read(20k ). Most of my readers finished it in 2-3 hours!

  4. Hi, I'm looking to see if I can find anyone who is willing to review a PDF, Epub or .mobi of my 44k word sci-fi leaning paranormal/fantasy book called The Illumination Query and post the review in June when I'm crowdfunding it's publication. http://booklaunch.io/22niel/tsod1
    If you want to get an overview of the story, there’s a fairly complete explanation of it here: http://publishizer.com/the-illumination-query/ I stopped the original campaign before it ran it’s course because I had initially started it without having any way of publicizing the project. I would like to have a way to get people aware of the book when I re-open it.
