About Me

Hi! Kristen here :-)

As you’ve probably figured out, I’m a big lover of books and always have been. I rarely read anything outside fantasy and science fiction, but I will on occasion if a book really catches my interest. I also love self-published books because my tastes tend to run darker, more intense, and/or quirkier than average, and every now and then I find a gem that blows every other book I’ve read out of the water. I never regret reading a book because I take something from every book I read, but I do find it a lot more fun to talk about the ones I like.

I’m also working on some books of my own, constantly learning, sharing my experiences, and looking for fellow writers to connect with.

As for the non-reader/writer parts of me… Well, I’m a Ravenclaw. Handstands are my spirit animal. My favorite color is red. I love the night because it has a magic and a stillness that makes everything feel more meaningful and makes me feel more like myself. I’m ridiculously indecisive. I have six piercings in one ear even though I’m afraid of needles. I love all things gymnastics and circus. And my skill set includes cutting open pomegranates without slicing a single seed, quoting Disney movies, remembering far too many of my dreams when I wake up, and taking weird selfies.

Don’t hesitate to leave a comment, send a message, or friend me—I love meeting fellow readers, writers, and bloggers!

All things bookish!

Quotes, humor, reading, writing, gymnastics, circus, food, and more, all in pretty picture form!

Any random thoughts I have that fit into 140 characters.

Any random thoughts I have that don’t fit into 140 characters. Also possibly short stories, poems, and other little writerly things by yours truly (if I can stop chickening out).

Photos! Mostly of books.


About the Blog

I started this blog in July 2015 as a place to share the amazing books I was finding. Good books deserve to be read, and good authors deserve to know when one of their books has made an impact on someone.

This blog contains reviews of the following types of books:
– Mostly Fantasy & Sci-Fi
– Young Adult, New Adult, & Adult (and very occasionally middle grade)
– Traditional & Indie/Self Pub
– M/F, M/M, & Menage Romance
