amydefaultI’m Amy, a 20-something book addict, coffee lover, freelancer, and blogger. I’ve loved books for as long as I can remember. I used to have my mom read me 101 Dalmatians so often before I could read that I could recite it and pretend I was reading it myself, and things only progressed from there.

This blog started as a class assignment in the Spring of 2013, when I had to cover a topic I was interested in, and
could find a semester’s worth of topics to cover. I absolutely dreaded blogging at that point, and it was always
looming over me to have to update it.

It wasn’t until the class ended that I realized how much I really loved it: once I could write about whatever I wanted, however I wanted to do so. Now there’s nothing I love more than interacting with all the other wonderful people who love books and reading as much as I do. Finally a place where I can gush as much as I like.

Because I never get sick of talking and writing about books (and everything in between) you can also find me:
