Am I insane?


My name is Tessa and I like to read books. (Hi, Tessa!)

I also like to talk about books.

I also like to look at pretty pictures of books on Instagram.

I have a TBR bookcase that is a hopeless case, as I buy more books than I could ever hope to realistically read. It’s an unsustainable hobby, but I don’t think I’m solo in this boat.

Is this all of them? I think deep down you already know the answer to that.

WELP- I decided to start a blog! It will mostly be about books, but sometimes I might want to talk about other stuff!

Ground rules I have set for myself and this blog:

  1. Read books! Read book club books. Read other books. Read all of the books or none of the books. There is no pressure.
  2. Write about the books you read! Posts can be reviews after I’ve finished a book or thoughts while I’m reading a book. Anything goes!
  3. Write about other things! I might just want to tell a funny story, or vent, or share a recipe. AGAIN. Anything. Goes.
  4. Be honest.
  5. Keep it fun. This is a hobby!

So, here I go. I am excited about this new adventure, and I am excited to join a very fun and exciting community of book lovers.

I leave you all with this:

Raising a reader!

Long before I created a small human of my very own, I was a collector of books for small humans. There is an extremely real possibility that I had a child to justify (slash make less creepy) the fact that I had such a large collection of kid’s books. I should probably consult a professional on this, but some stones are better left unturned.

Turns out what ACTUALLY happened is that I used my offspring as an excuse to acquire MORE kid’s books. (Where is that professional…..???)

Anyway- to my immense relief, the tot loves books. We read four (minimum) every night.

I’m raising a reader, and couldn’t be happier!
