Hi! I’m Lauren, a bibliophile through and through. Southern born and raised, I come by my sassy opinions naturally.

My love for books started before I could even read them. I’m told I could quote the books back to my parents as they read them to me before bedtime. One of my first literary memories is being scared out of my mind by R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps. Ever since then I’ve been obsessed with all things horror, mystery, and paranormal, which probably explains my complete adoration for Stephen King.

My love for writing developed a little later. Being the awkward and shy butterfly that I still am today, while I was avoiding people as a child my brain was always coming up with stories and adventures ranging from Indian settlements to vampire hideouts. It never occurred to me to write them down until I started high school and realized that English was the only subject I actually liked and that the writing process was fun for me.

I started this blog because I’m a firm believer that if you have a passion for something you should pursue it and share it with the world. People ask me all the time why I enjoy reading and writing so much, and the answer is simple. It’s my passion. If I go a day without doing both of these things, I become restless and unsettled. This blog is my attempt at sharing this passion with the world. So join me as I review books (good and bad).
