About Me

Hi! My name is Julie and I live in North Carolina with my husband and our two children ~ a 12 year old boy, Carter, who is in 7th grade, and a 9 year old girl, who I will refer to as M until she's old enough to give me permission to use her name around here. She is in 4th grade this year. I work full time for a large technology company as a product owner on a scrum team, but my background is in marketing and writing. I love to read in my spare time.


I've been blogging here at My Book Retreat since October of 2008, sharing my thoughts about the books I read, the books my kids read and reading in general. Recently, I started a series of posts called Book Club Picks where I share ideas for book clubs. I balance my reading between books I am personally interested in, books I'm reading for my monthly neighborhood book club, books my kids are reading, and books I'm given for free to review. So far, it's been a nice balance and I intend to keep it that way.

I hope you enjoy visiting me here at My Book Retreat! Take a look through the hundreds of reviews I've written here over the past few years. If you have any questions, check out my review policy and disclosure statement.
