About Me

Welcome to my book blog!

I am a native Texan, and after living in Washington state for six years, I have returned to my home state.  I have a Ph.D. in English but I’m not living in the ivory tower.  My research interests include 20th/21st century British and Anglophone Literature. I like major league baseball, live music, a nice glass of wine, eating well, and creating fictional worlds that bend to my will.  My favorite places are San Francisco, Chicago, Toronto, D.C., Ireland, and home, not necessarily in that order.  I still haven’t found what I’m looking for. I want a happy ending.

dessert…bubble baths…chocolate…traveling…lazy sundays…thunderstorms…these are a few of my favorite things.

This space is for writing about books and sharing my thoughts on what I’ve read with other readers. I am a reader with a book budget of $30 per month, and one of my goals with this blog is to give readers insight into what books are worth their book dollars and where they might find “free” reads (through Kindle Unlimited subscriptions, Prime Reading, or their local library). My favorite genres are urban fantasy, detective fiction, romance, and literary fiction, with a light sprinkling of young adult literature.

Thanks for dropping by and happy reading!
