Hi everyone My name is Victoria Zumbrum, 40 years old, married 14 years with 1 son. This is my very first blog. So bear with me. I have always wanted to have my own blog. I have always loved to read. I enjoy getting lost in a good book.
I love becoming part of the story and characters. I am hoping to bring my love of books to my readers.

I love reading different genres such as paranormal, young adult, romance, romantic suspense, mystery, Christian fiction, some horror, etc. The list goes on. I started reviewing books a couple of years ago and have done reviews for different blogs and even some authors. I really have enjoyed reviewing books and I will continue to do so. If anyone is interested in me reviewing a book for them, please contact me. I still have a lot to learn regarding my own blog so bear with me. I welcome and appreciate all followers.

Get ready for a Fun Read Adriana Fired!



Let me introduce you to Adriana, Book 1 in the Banovic Series where Los Angeles serves as the backdrop for this twisty drama. 


Getting into the prestigious Westwood Academy depends on the size of your family’s bank account, or if you’re a Banovic, your family has a long lineage at the school. So, when our heroine, fifteen-year-old Adriana Banovic, a child actress whose career has ended prematurely, enrolls for the semester, her rival, Astrid Wilson, is unhappy.


While Adriana wants to lay low, find another gig, and finish high school. Astrid does her best to get her to drop out since getting her expelled is not an option. Hijinks ensue and the hunter becomes the hunted. 


Also attending Westwood Academy is singing sensation, Leighann DaCosta, who is on the cusp of becoming a megastar. When Leighann does the unthinkable, she becomes the target of the #cancelLeighann campaign.


Her world begins to crumble and the only person who can help her has gone missing, forcing her to rely on the Banovics for safety.


This is a retelling of the Family Portrait series in the post-pandemic era.


This series is perfect for:

Adults who like to read young adult drama novels

Books that read like a television series eg Beverly Hills 90210, Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill

About the Author

I was born in Port of Spain, Trinidad where I lived the first half of my life. Following that I moved to New York, then Los Angeles, and finally Albuquerque, New Mexico.


I grew up watching nighttime soap operas with my mother, I believe that’s where my love affair with drama began.


After repeatedly seeing Aaron Spelling’s name on the screen night after night, I knew that I wanted to be an Aaron Spelling. Then I found out that Aaron Spelling was actually a person.


My goal is to provide a wonderful, and enjoyable experience for readers by creating memorable characters, putting them in difficult situations, and watching them grow.


I am the author of 9 books as of this writing.
