I am Melissa. I am an avid reader and created this blog to connect with other people who love books. I live in a small town in the southern U.S. With nothing to do in my little community, I turned to books to find adventure. I fell in love with reading and now it is my very favorite pastime.
In my not so spare time, I am a full time homeschooling mom. I have a 5 year old son who is so passionate about learning. I love being able to share my love of books with him. I also am a caregiver to my mom who has been battling metastatic stage 4 breast cancer for 6 years. She is one of the reasons I was so interested in books, and some of my fondest memories are reading with her after she got home from work at night. In my late teens, I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression, and reading has always been a way that I can quiet my mind.
I have a pretty wide variety of genres that I love to read, but my absolute favorites would have to be Young Adult and Psychological/Domestic Thrillers. However, lately I have enjoyed quite a few nonfiction books as well.
Thank you for taking time to visit my blog. I hope to make everlasting friendships here.
