I hope this blog helps me find my voice. For the past seven year or so I’ve had a very cut-and-dry writing style drilled into me. I’ve forgotten what it’s like to write freely and creatively and without having to cite every other thought. In the past eight months I’ve been exposed to BookTube, Bookriot, podcasts, and all kinds of bookish delights. it’s exciting to have tapped into a community of people who consume and appreciate books in a manner similar to my own. I’m feeling validated for habits and behaviors I’ve had since I learned to read. Finishing grad school has also allowed me more time to read for pleasure and I am now tackling my TBR with joy.

I’m not sure what kind of a book blog this will become, but I’m excited to find out.
