Introducing Kat from The Book Tart ~ Guest Reviewer

Hi. My name is Kat, and I am a bookaholic. I love reading, I love stories, I love books and most of all, I love reading romance. I collect books. I like to own them so I can re-read my favorites when they mood strikes me. I have scads of books, thousands… I’m not sure of the exact number. it’s on my to do list. I want to catalog all my physical books so I stop buying duplicates (which I do with embarrassing frequency!) The notion to catalog my collection came to me a few years ago… and though I haven’t made much progress on that front- I decided as long as I was hiring a web designer to help make my book collection database look nice, why not ask them to work on a project I’d began dreaming about. And that’s how The Book Tart came to be.
My brand, new, shiny website is www.thebooktart.com and it’s a place for me to share my passion for all things fiction! I have a blog and I vlog (YouTube channel) in my pinup outfits! A little bit of my personal collection of books it cataloged. I plan to have a forum to chat about books, soon-ish. I review books and have drafted a few friends to help with more reviews as well. That part of the site is one of the parts still under construction!
But the part I am most excited about is my New Fiction Release database. Stop on by and check it out at http://thebooktart.com/new-fiction-release/ It’s cookie dough. All the ingredients are there, but it’s not quite done baking… :p It is the only place I know that you can find a list of new releases and select the month you’re interested in, choose the day of the month to narrow the list down even further. For example, June, 2012 has 1032 titles listed in my database! *squee!* You can select the date and scroll through an alphabetical list of releases for the day you choose. The database is searchable by author, title and ISBN and has links to major online retailers if you are interested in buying the book. The database is a work in progress… And it’s taking forever to finish! I still want a wish list function so I can save the books that catch my eye to a personal list and view them later! I also want to be able to manually add books that the database programming has missed or has incomplete data. My geeks say they are working on that. But, if you notice titles I have missed or things I need to correct please email me at queenoftarts@thebooktart.com I’ll add them to my honey do list. J
My website has a contest going on right now because I accidentally bought 2 copies of Katie Macalister’s brand new book Sparks Fly. See? I buy duplicates because I have soooo many books and a glitchy memory :p  Enter to win “My goof is your gain” contest with 2 books and a whole lotta swag. Contest ends this Sunday night at midnight East coast time. http://thebooktart.com/new-fiction-release/new-contest/  
 I would like to thank Dawn for asking me to guest review here. “Thanks Hon!” I met her at the Romantic Times Book Convention in L.A. in 2011. My friend Lisa and I asked her to be our roommate for this year’s convention and we had a BLAST! It was soooo fun! I am very thankful I am friends with Dawn. She lets me pick her brain and helps me out with blogging and reviewing tips! I was very excited when she gave me the opportunity to review Lila Dubois books with rockabilly heroines. I am all about the pinup. My website is going for a pinup vibe and I love the fashion of the 1940s and 1950s. I dress in pinup clothes when I get the opportunity. Here’s my Pinupalicious pinterest board http://pinterest.com/thebooktart/pinupalicious/
I hope you enjoy me reviews of Lila’s Undone Lovers series the next few days.


For more about The Book Tart:


  1. Nice learning more about you, Kat! I've browsed your website recently and really enjoyed it. I especially liked the list of pseudo names of authors that I never knew some of my fav authors wrote under. It sounds like you've put a tremendous amount of time and effort to make your site user friendly for us reading addicts :)

  2. Hi Hon! Glad you had fun playing at www.thebooktart.com :) more features coming soon.

    I am so happy to meet other book addicts :p I am more of a lurker on twitter, l but I'm trying to get better. What book are you reading now? I'm between books *gasp* I know! My excuse is that I've been working non-stop for the last 12 days. And though I love my day job, I've been too tired to read :( I'm starting Nalini Singh's new book tonight!

  3. I know what you mean about the day job! It is kicking my butt big time and not able to read as much as I'd like. Of course, I had to read Mari Carr's Because It's True and also Delilah Devlin's Two Wild For Teacher. I'm probably gonna read the latest book in the Rawhide series by Desiree Holt tonight :) Have a great weekend!

  4. My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .
    net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on several
    websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
    I have heard great things about blogengine.net.

    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any help would be really appreciated!

  5. Hey, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Ie, it looks fine but
    when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, great blog!

  7. The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off
    topic but I had to share it with someone!
