Bending The Spine was started April 18, 2011. I started this blog because of my love of books and my want to connect with other bookish people. There is just something about finding a book or a new author and telling others about it!

I am addicted to reading! My favorite genres are Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, YA Paranormal, Science Fiction, and Dystopian. I hope you enjoy. Happy reading everyone.
