A creative space for all things books and writing….

About Me

Official Blog Logo |


Hi there! My name is Christina. I am a writer, blogger, and book reviewer who enjoys living life simply and creatively. The purpose of this blog is to share and connect with others on all things books and writing, and other miscellaneous things.

I find myself wholly inspired by a wide range of other creative pursuits, such as singing, dancing, music, musical theater, instrumental playing, drawing, and graphic design. But reading and writing have always been the top two things that spark my imagination.

There is nothing more soothing, more exciting than the written word. I love a good story featuring dynamic and engaging characters, oh-snap! plots, realistic and compelling conflicts, and innovative worlds. Basically, moving stories I can get so lost in that by the time I resurface I am thoroughly changed for the better.

I usually read young adult, fantasy, urban fantasy, romance, and paranormal romance, but also enjoy reading children’s literature and middle grade. I’m more inclined to write fantasy but am always open to writing within other genres if that is what the story dictates.

I hope that from this blog people find something new to read, can teach me something new about writing, find inspiration for their work, or have nerdy discussions about books. I post fairly regularly.

Thank you for viewing my blog!
