About Michelle


My Blog:

I will be focusing the Addict blog on Books and Movies (and some music too). I love to read and I am not immediately prejudice to seeing films that are based on the books. Apples and Oranges I say. All other gibberish will go on My Words blog.

Good Men are Fictional
(Quote: Austenland by Shannon Hale)

I’m 39. gahh! But then, I only feel younger when I am playing with my 5 y.o. niece.

My nickname is Shell… sisters called me that when I was young, then my cousins and now my 2 rug rat nieces call me Shell. And now a new addition to the bunch is a sweet nephew.

I was in the US Navy for 4 years honorably (’03 to ’07 and stationed on the USS Boxer). It was an amazing adventure. I got to visit 8 countries for a very short time. If it weren’t for my passion in reading though, I don’t know how I would’ve gotten through those very long deployments.

My family loves reading so I have been influenced by them. Along with enjoying books and movies, I like all other forms of art. Books and Movies has always been a passion. I love the classics the most: I.e. Classic Gothic Romance, and some Jane Austen and contemporary. I also enjoy 21st century contemporary lit. Brit lit romance is my favorite chick lit.

  1. Hi Michelle

    Thanks for the follow! How have you been and how’s your blog doing?
    I don’t know if you know that I moved my blog to a self-hosted platform. This has prevented me from connecting with WordPress bloggers like I used to. I would still like to remain in contact with your blog. Do you have an RSS feed I can subscribe to?
    If you would still like to follow my blog, may I add you to my mailing list? I send out one email per day with all the blogs posted for the day including blogging tips. You can also unsubscribe at any time if you feel you want to stop receiving the emails. If you are happy for me to subscribe you, please send me your email address.
    Also, I created a blogger tips group to connect with all my long last WordPress blogger friends, and to help all of us to learn from each other. I would love for you to share your knowledge in the group and connect with other bloggers. Here’s the link:

    Finally, here’s a blog I thought you may find interesting:

  2. Hi Michelle,

    I found you from the Hallmark/ Lifetime Christmas Movie Review blog. I have been following that blog for the past year and the person writing it seems to have suddenly stopped posting. Since you share a love for their posts as much as I do, I was wondering if you knew what happened to them. I haven’t seen a post from them in the past year. I even posted a msg there asking if everything was ok. Would greatly appreciate your insight. It’s amazing how much you come to care about a complete stranger just by reading their blog isn’t it? 🙂
