I love to laugh. I love fresh flowers. I love a killer pair of stiletto boots. If it were possible, I would subsist only on queso, chips and salsa and cupcakes (Sophi P’s for the win!). I love animals of all shapes and sizes, but have a particular soft spot for elephants and dogs. While I swoon over the gorgeous white homes and interiors pictured everywhere on Pinterest and Instagram, I have made my peace with the fact that Pinterest perfection is just not in the cards for me. My personal aesthetic is vivid and bright. I love color, pattern and texture. I have a 7 year old son who is LOUD and inquisitive and a loving husband who is always building and tinkering with something when he is not working. I work full time and toys (usually Legos) are always strewn about no matter how often I pick up and more often than not, there is dog hair on the couch.
I have had a book in my hand for as long as I can remember. I absolutely LOVE to read. I am a diehard Louise Penny and Jo Nesbo fan. I also recently discovered Claire Fuller’s works and I am obsessed! My “go to” genre is psychological thrillers, however, my reading interests run the gamut from Nordic Noir (counting down the days until Jo Nesbo’s latest Harry Hole novel releases in May), Southern Gothic (as well as any book based in a southern setting), historical fiction, Christian Literature and inspirational life stories. Please head over to my Review Policy tab for contact information if you are interested in having me review one of your works.
I started this blog because of my passion for books with the hopes of connecting with other bloggers and writers who share the same love. I also started this blog to have a place to reach out to other mothers who have a child who struggles with reading as mine does. There is nothing more frustrating and heart breaking than to watch your little love work on words over and over again and still not be able to process them in sentence form. Watching him struggle is one of the most difficult things I have ever done and many sleepless nights have been spent trying to determine which way to go in working with him to get him where he needs to be. We will be testing for dyslexia soon and hoping to get a definitive diagnosis so we can create a plan and go from there. Please head on over to the Lou Loves Literature tab if you find yourself with these same circumstances or have some insight to provide on how to move forward.
I thank you for taking the time to check out my little book blog and I hope you will visit again soon!
Best Regards to You,
