Meet the Blogger

Hi, I’m Erin! A thirty-something college English teacher, freelance writer/editor, and avid reader.  I finally decided to put my lifelong love of reading and writing to good use and create my own little space online. Here, you’ll find my reviews and musings on everything I read. Which is pretty much a little of everything. I have a master’s degree in Victorian Literature, so that will always be my first love, but these days I typically read Adult Contemporary Fiction, Historical Fiction, Thrillers, plus Adult and YA Fantasy. Reading a wide range of genres helps me keep the magic going.

As Stephen King so eloquently put it, “Books are uniquely portable magic.” I don’t possess any magical skills like Harry Potter or Sally Owens, but inside the pages of a book, I have been able to access plenty of magic. So welcome and I hope you’ll join me somewhere in pages!

You can find me on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Goodreads!
