I have been a reading-crazed bookworm for as long as I can remember. While other kids were collecting toys, I was collecting books. When other kids were asking for bunk beds in their rooms, I was asking for bookshelves. Which is all to say, I have always chosen the path less traveled.
I love food, and I am exceptionally lucky to live in a city where there are more amazing culinary possibilities than I can keep up with. I love wine. I love to spend time with my friends, who light up my life in very real ways. Coffee is key to my personal success. I love animals, especially the three that live in my house with me. I love creativity and design, and discovering new ways to incorporate color and texture into my very minimalist aesthetic. I have trained professionally in yoga & meditation, because I love the practices. I live with my wonderful partner who doesn't always understand my obsession with reading, but who makes a terrific Instagram husband nonetheless. I work full time as a facilitator and project management consultant which is a fancy way of saying I am a professional jack of all trades.
I love reading, it is my favorite way to unplug and unwind. I can never name my favorite author because there are too many talented people that have rocked my world through literature. I do, however, have an exceptional soft spot for Hemingway, and those are the works that I most often return to over and over again.
My most-read genre of choice includes mysteries and psychological thrillers, followed closely by literary fiction and memoirs, but I will read virtually anything that sounds interesting and piques my interest.
I started this blog because of my love for books, talking about books, writing about books, connecting with other book-obsessed humans and really needing a place to keep all of my work together.
I have made so many incredible friends in the Instagram community, and I hope that this blog will become an extension of those relationships. Of course, I will also use this blog to shamelessly work towards my new personal life goal of becoming one of those quoted review blurbs in the beginning of a novel.

Thank you for coming to hang out with me on my little corner of the internet. Don't be a stranger.
