Welcome to Cracken the Spines.  I am Jennifer McCracken, English teacher by day and novice blogger by night!  This foray into book blogging began as an experiment to see if I could create and maintain a website, while working two jobs, being a devoted wife, and the loving mother of two boys – as if I don’t have enough to keep me busy!

I am obsessed with literature – specifically fantasy – and it isn’t enough that I get to teach books for a living.  I want to discuss them obsessively on the Internet as well.
