About Us

The Robo-Readers
(Name Courtesy of Celeste)

It all began one December 2011 day with the release of a young adult paranormal/sci-book for horny women with prurient interests but too prudish for erotica readers who don’t mind reading about a hot, sexy alien that just gets your blood boiling in the most seductive way. Yes, ladies (and gentlemen), we are talking about “Obsidian” by Jennifer Armentrout.

Katy, Celeste, and Word Traffic had been gushing about Daemon Black to their online book club, and Mitch decided to give the book a try. Boy, did he end up regretting it, and scared of being attacked by obsessive fangirls, Mitch decided to steer far, far away.

During the next few months, Mitch slowly recovered from the trauma he had suffered from reading the book and began to participate more in book discussions. Their club began doing group readings of the book of the week (which ended up being the book of the night – and why some of their friends call them robots because they read so fast). members could oftentimes find Katy and Mitch going on and on about certain topics. One day, their friends suggested that the two should do a joint review, but it was written off as a joke, and neither one gave it another thought.

During the next few months, Katy kept harassing Mitch the two kept in touch, as Katy teased Mitch about his “girly” tastes in books, while Mitch made fun of Katy for her liking “horrible” books because of fictional male characters (disclaimer: neither of which are entirely true).

They struck their first “deal” when Mitch convinced Katy to read “Bloodlines” by Richelle Mead, in which Mitch was raving about how awesome Sidney Sage was. Katy didn’t seem to think so but begrudgingly admitted she was so much better in “The Golden Lily.”

From there, the two began reading books together and discussing books while they read. Sometimes, they agreed, but more often, they found themselves with very different opinions. At least their friends got some entertainment value from seeing the two bicker on each other’s Goodreads.

In August 2012, Katy somehow convinced Mitch to read “Onyx” – yes, the dreaded amazing sequel to the book that started it all. Following Mitch’s melodramatic rant of how awful the book was, their friend Melissa suggested the two start a joint blog – seriously this time. With the help of their friends, “A Girl, A Boy and A Blog” was born.

    Hey, congrats for the blog! It looks very nice, well written and very funny at places. You two are lovers of the written word 🙂 and it reflects in the writing where each shows his/her sides and works well together with the other, making the sum greater than the parts. Rooting for you! Go Go! 🙂
