Labor Day Weekend Reads


Who doesn’t love a three-day weekend? It’s the perfect time to relax and take a break from those pesky adult responsibilities. Take advantage of that extra day off from work and get some reading in. Today, I’m sharing books that are all under 350 pages, that you can read over this long weekend. While I don’t have written reviews for all of these, I have read them all and highly recommend them!

My Dream Author Panel

One of my favorite things about being a reader is talking to other readers about a book we both love. What’s even better is talking to the author who wrote that book! I’ve been lucky enough to go to a couple of panels, and I loved getting to hear the authors speak about their books, their process, and their inspiration firsthand. So today, I wanted to share who I would choose to be on my dream author panel. Continue reading

A Room Just For Books: My Dream Reading Space

If you’re a book lover and reader, then you probably have thought about your dream reading space. I know I have. I actually have a board on Pinterest dedicated to it –> A Room Just For Books. That is why I was so excited when the wonderful people of Arhaus reached out to me to see if I would share with y’all what my dream reading space would look like.

As I’m getting older, I am finding that I like to keep the majority of my decor neutral; especially big ticket items like duvets, sofas, tables, etc. I like a lot of different kinds of styles, and sometimes that leads me to getting bored with something I recently bought. By keeping all my ‘bases’ neutral, I am free to switch up the look by adding different pillows, throws, and other decor items.

When I started thinking about what I would want a potential reading space to look like, I Continue reading

For the Book Lover without a Bookcase

If you’re part of the bookstagram community, then I guarantee you’ve seen what I’m about to talk about. Those gorgeous photos of 5, 6, 7 bookcases lining the walls of a room, filled to the brim with books. Whether they are organized by color, series, or author; decorated with bookish items or lights, we can all agree they’re amazing. You wish you could jump into the picture, curl up on the big comfy armchair in the photo, with a book and your Continue reading

Goals for 2017


Happy New Year! I cannot believe another year has already gone by. I probably say that every year, but I still find it jarring how quickly time goes by. There were a lot of changes for me this year, but the biggest one was moving all the way to Los Angeles in September. I am still adjusting and finding my place here, but I have hope that however long I have left here in the city, will be good!

So, resolutions. I decided not to do so-called resolutions this year, but did come up with some goals. I find if I trick myself into renaming them ‘goals’ they are more attainable. I Continue reading

Meet the Blogger

Hello! My name is Kari and I am addicted to reading. I’ve been a book lover all my life and wanted to share that love with others.

So you might be thinking, there are so many blogs already, why start one? I know, I know. The blogging world is over-saturated with about every type of blog you can think of. But you know what, that’s okay. One of the reasons I wanted to start this blog, is because I have found that some people can be judgmental about certain genres. I have especially noticed this in the past couple of years since my taste in books has evolved, grown, and changed.

I find this judgment occurs particularly when referring to the young adult or romance genres. For some reason, some people think if you are past the age of 20 and still enjoy reading young adult novels, than you are not “intellectual” enough. That pertains to Continue reading
