Overview

Hi my name is Bridget Ball and I write under the pen name Bridget Bruso which was my married name. I write professional book reviews and do editing for Online Book Club, English and Literature tutoring on Course Hero, and write blogs for Medium and Blogger. I enjoy reading all kinds of books! Some of my favorite genres are YA, horror, romance, and the classics.
I enjoy writing reviews for Online Book Club and generally read about two books a week, sometimes at the same time! I also worked with a friend and client, Tabatha Waybright, on proofreading and editing her book Unmystic Mountain available now on Amazon and Kindle. I also hosted her first book club for her book and conducted a Q and A with her. I read so much that I can tell almost immediately if I am going to like a book or not. When writing reviews I will give my honest opinion in a fun and professional way. I am always on time and precise. I pay a lot of attention to detail because I am a perfectionist. I enjoy posting book reviews on social media and have a lot of followers on Facebook that look forward to my reviews.
My favorite setting to read a book is on the couch with a cup of hot chocolate in my hand and my dog at my feet!

Work experience

Book Reviewer and Editor

Online Book Club
March, 2016 – Present (almost 6 years)

I choose from a variety of books in a variety of genres submitted by the company, read the book, and submit a book review with a rating within two weeks time. After submitting the book, I also fill out a form siting errors in grammar, spelling, and punctuation as well as noting any profanity or suggestive situations within the books. This company has very strict guidelines to abide by in order to continue being a part of their team.
