Welcome to Fluffy Reads!

Fluffy Reader Francine reporting for duty! I’m here for a little introduction on our blog and the 2 fluffy readers behind it.

Fluffy Reads is a little collaboration project between myself, Francine @ Always Lost in Books, and Sandra @ Sandra’s World of Books. We have both been thinking about co-blogging, and after finding a shared love for adorable contemporary romances, Fluffy Reads was born.

What does Fluffy Reads have to offer?
Fangirling. Lots and lots of fangirling. Unlike our blogs where we have so many books and so many reviews, Fluffy Reads will be all about fluffy reads and anything related to it. There probably won’t be a lot of reviews, but we will have discussion posts, features, interviews, guest posts, recommendations, or basically anything under the sun related to fluffy books. We would love to find a couple of fluffy readers as well so we might approach a couple of bloggers out there. (If anyone is reading this, feel free to contact us as well)

Who are the fluffy readers?
Firstly, I would like to personally introduce Fluffy Reader Sandra! I met her after signing up for Epic Recs in December 2013, and we pretty much clicked. We got along so well that we kept Epic Recs between the two of us, even though we were probably supposed to sign up for different partners every month. Anyway, I found out how much she loved fluffy reads because she requested it a lot during the months we had to push each other to read certain books. I will admit how much I love her reactions to all those fluffy books that I recommend to her. I could see that she enjoyed them so much, and that made me happy. I think that’s why we wanted Fluffy Reads - to share our love and to see others fangirl with us too. And of course to recommend some books we love.

Sandra is from the Netherlands, and is currently working her way to get back into high school in order to get into a university. She studied graphic design, and she designed our lovely blog design. She knows a couple of languages including English, Dutch, German, and probably a couple more I don’t remember. She’s that good and I’m jealous. :P Oh, and she has an awesome boyfriend who also likes books and even gives her book gifts.

I, Fluffy Reader Francine, am from the Philippines. I’m currently working as an online English teacher, but I’m working to get back into a university. I’m thinking of taking up Literature or Clothing Technology. Who knows :P I love reading all kinds of books, but I’ve always (ALWAYS!) had a soft spot for fluffy reads. They are my guilty pleasures. I am single, but I have a lot of book boyfriends. I bet Sandra does too. :P

We still have a lot of things to iron out, but we’re doing this all for fun so we’ll take things day by day~


  1. Oh my goodness guys - this looks awesome! I adore the design and the whole Fluffy Reads idea. I think this is an automatic follow from me! I do like my fluffy reads :)
    If you're ever looking for another Fluffy Reader...

  2. I love Anna and the French Kiss, but honestly Lola and the Boy Next Door was even better! Amy and Roger's Epic Detour was surprisingly un-fluffy for me - I may have shed a tear or two...

    I really love this idea, by the way. I love my emotionally traumatic books, but sometimes I just need a fluffy afternoon. Can't wait for more!

  3. Congrats girls!!! Your blog looks really cute! Can't wait to see all of your posts in the future!!

    Some of my favorite romance books are Anna and the French Kiss, the Bronze Horseman, the Princess Diaries (oldie, but goodie!), the DUFF and so much more!

  4. I haven't read ANY of those books! I need to get on the ball! Ok I lied a little. I've read the first few pages of Fangirl, and I'd like to read more.

    I LOVE your blog design. Right now I'm blogging over at cinnamoncindy.blogspot.com, but I'm seriously thinking about starting a new book blog with my writing partner.

    I'm excited to see what you guys have coming in the future!

  5. By the way, how on EARTH did you guys get Google Friend Connect working on here? I can't for the life of me figure out how to put it on my blog.

  6. Ladies, this is awesome! I'm so excited to watch this blog grow and to hear about all of the "fluffy reads" you two talk about! Way to go!

  7. Sorry, forgot to mention my favourite romance book. It would probably have to be The Notebook (okay so pretty much anything by Nicholas Sparks!)

  8. What a fun idea! You know, I've never been really into fluffy reads, but I've noticed that some of my moods look for something easy lately :D The last book I read was 'Smart girls get what they want' and I enjoyed it a lot!

  9. Some of my fav contemporaries are: Geek Girl by Cindy C. Bennett, Bright Before Sunrise by Tiffany Schmidt, Leaving Paradise & Rules of Attraction by Simon Elkeles, Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley, Anna & the French Kiss and Lola & the Boy next Door, etc.

    1. Also, great idea for a blog, this will be fun :)

      And I'm actually Aleksandra N in the form, and thanks for the giveaway!

  10. Super cute blog! I think my fave so far is Eleanor & Park!

  12. I've been falling in love with fluffly reads lately ;-) Cute blog, love it!

  13. I seldom read contemporaries because I'm more into Dystopian books but some of my favorite contemporary books are: Waking Up Married by Mira Lyn Kelly, Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella and Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen. :)
