Reader & Writer


I'm obsessed with reading (but who isn't if you're on Swoonreads, amirite?)! I will read almost---ALMOST---everything but I prefer YA and New Adult Romances.

Often I am told I have my nose in these types of books because I'm a closet Romantic. Perhaps... which is why I love to daydream about fictitious male leads and the unreachable standards they set.

As much as "realistic" endings are, well, REALISTIC and sometimes appealing... I ADORE happy endings. I am full on the full-on cheesy type with hopes and obnoxious behaviors while reading a book that it turns out the way I hope and dream. (Dramatic. I know. But the cheesiness makes me feel so 'Gouda'. Get it? No? Moving on.)

I'm excited to read the brilliant stories on here!

Favorite Books

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE by Jane Austen (Hah-lo, Mr. Darcy. May I have the next dance?)

FLIPPED by Wendelin Van Draanen (So adorbs. So sweet. And a happy ending! Sort of?)

BOOKISH BOYFRIENDS by Tiffany Schmidt. (Talk about playing to my Darcy tunes! <3)

There's more... but I am running out of---
