A little bit about me...


Hello there! Welcome to Stories & Sweeties!  This is me...and not me LOL.  I don't usually look like that (not even close, really!)---but my lovely best friend is an amazing budding photographer, so there I am.  She also stops in to do a few guest reviews, because she loves YA books as much as I do, so keep an eye out for Amy! (click here to check out her photography site!)

My name is Becky and I started this little blog in January 2010, wanting to spread the word far and wide about my love for books and cupcakes. :)  I'm an avid reader (that may be an understatement!) and for the past few years I've been reading YA fiction almost exclusively. I'm a total library addict, have been since I was little, so I guess it's fitting that I'm also a library assistant! I love making recommendations of the good books I've read to our library visitors and even people I run into in bookstores, so starting this blog was a natural extension of that.  And I've loved every minute of it!

 As for the cupcakes...another of my passions!  There's nothing better than curling up on the couch with a good book, a cup of tea, and a cupcake! I'll be throwing in the occasional post about these yummy delights as well as a few other treats!
