Welcome! You made it!
I started this blog as a “portfolio” for “serious writing” (per some professional advice that would have better suited someone else.)

I don’t write book reviews (very often) or participate in reading challenges.
I DO post book tags and gush about my favorite series.
I occasionally publish posts about faith, politics, and/or mental health.
