The A-Z of Me – Dee’s Rad Reads

I’ve seen these on a few blogs over the last few months most recently on Lynne’s blog Fictionphile and Nicki’s blog Secret Library Book Blog .  I really enjoyed reading about my blogging friends and thought I would give it a try too!

A = Audiobooks. I’ve really listened to a lot of them this last year!

B= BOOKS!  Need I say more? 🙂

C= CRA (Canada Revenue Agency) Where I worked for years before I had to medically retire (years before I wanted).  Crocs – I know many hate them and they sure aren’t pretty, but they are so comfortable!

D= Dee Dee.   My real name is Deanna but my nickname is Dee Dee or Dee. Dee’s Rad Reads and Reviews – this blog that I started about two years ago.

E= Edamame –   My favorite bean!

F= Fuzzy Socks – I’m all about comfort.


G= Goodreads – A site I spend a lot of time on.  I joined Goodreads years ago just to keep track of the books I’d read so I wouldn’t keep buying the same book over and over. I started writing small reviews and eventually, I was reviewing every book I read. A great community. Friends from Goodreads encouraged me to start this blog.

H= Home – There’s really no place like it.

I= iPad & iPhone – things I don’t like to be without!

J= Jenn (always two N’s)  – My best friend. Someone who has been there for me through thick and thin. It’s also for Jodi Picoult – One of my favorite authors.

K= Karissa.  My lovely 19-year-old daughter.  Kristin Hannah – Another one of my favorite authors.

L= Lymphedema – a condition I have in my legs. It is a swelling that occurs when lymph fluid can’t flow normally and builds up in the soft tissues of a limb. It usually occurs in parts of the body where lymph nodes have been removed or damaged by cancer treatment or surgery.

M= Mother, Mom, Mommy – the best names I have been called ❤

N= Netflix – This past year I have become addicted to Netflix. I love that so many books have been turned into movies or mini-series.

O= Organized – I like everything in its place. However, I do have books that still need to be organized.

P= Patricia – My mother has been one of my greatest supporters and I really don’t know what I would do without her.   Popcorn – my favorite snack. I honestly can’t get enough!

Q= Queen – one of my favorite bands!

R= Reading – of course!  Rick – A terrific stepfather and Papa ❤

S= Sushi – I love it!!

T= Tea – A cup of tea goes perfectly with a good book.

U= Uggs – I have many pairs of Ugg boots & slippers. I don’t buy them for style or brand though, purely for comfort.

V= Veronica Mars –  One of my favorite TV series! And my fellow Marshmallows, She’s back! Veronica Mars, starring Kristen Bell, returns to life with a new eight-part miniseries on July 26, 2019 “Spring break in Neptune.”

X= Xanadu – the song by Olivia Newton-John

Z= Zen – I’m trying to be more Zen.

Well, that was fun!  I have really enjoyed reading other bloggers “about me” posts and look forward to reading more.


Happy reading everyone!!

  1. Addicted to Netflix I’m guilty! Kristin Hannah is and has been one of my #1 favorite authors for years! I could go on and on. I The Great Alone I just joined BOTM a couple months ago to buy it as an add on for 9.99 what a steal and I’m currently re-reading it! This was a fun blog I really enjoyed it and learning more about you! Have a great day or night and look forward to more blogs!

  2. Great post Dee. I love learning more about the bloggers I follow. I had no idea you were a fellow Canuck. My son and DIL lived in Winnipeg for a couple of years but are back home now in Windsor, Ontario.
