Hello, fellow book lovers! If you like video games, hiking, and of course good books than you and I will get along splendidly! Like me, my book taste is a little all over the place. I will read anything from children's classics to murder mysteries. I can enjoy a well-written slice-of-life story that makes me cry, but also love the adventurous thrill of a sci-fi or fantasy novel. So grab your favorite cup of tea or coffee (both are delicious), cozy up in your favorite blanket, and let's enjoy a book together! :)
