My personal favorite book series at the moment is called “A Court of Thorns and Roses” by the incredible author Sarah J. Maas. This series follows the journey of a girl named Feyre as she copes with her new life as a prisoner in the realm of the Fey. These books helped me though a very rough time in my life and so they will always hold a very special place in my heart. “A Court of Thorns and Roses” features fantastic and deep characters, stunning imagery, and quick witted humor. The story is gripping and so intense that it will keep you constantly on the edge of your seat. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to pick up a book they will never want to put down. It is truly the most compelling story I have ever read. If you have read the series I would love to hear your thoughts on it. If you haven’t, I hope you give it a try.
Thanks for joining me!

The purpose of this blog is to be an escape for lovers of literature. I have always had an overactive imagination. Sometimes, especially as a child, it was incredibly difficult for me to separate what was real and what was simply in my head. Many people grow out of the phase of “playing pretend,” but I was never really able to. While I don’t run around outside and play pretend anymore, I do spend a lot of time allowing my imagination to run wild (especially when stressed). My ultimate coping mechanisms have always been reading and writing. I imagined myself living in the worlds that I read about in books as a way to escape from the stress I experienced in my day to day life. Over time, I began to create places and characters of my own, which greatly inspired my desire to be a writer. I suppose when you spend your life inventing fantasies in your head, there comes a time when you feel like you should be writing some of them down. This blog is going to serve as a place where I discuss my favorite books, writing strategies, inspirations, struggles specific to my journey as an aspiring author, and occasionally I will share a chapter or two of my book. Mostly, I hope it is a place where people feel safe and comfortable enough to share their thoughts on anything and everything in regards to escaping life through the written word.
