My Rage-Fueled Grown-Up Christmas List

Last night, while waiting for the bus, I got angry.

An introduction

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.)

Over the years, Narrative Paradise morphed into a book blog…of sorts.

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.

More accurately, Narrative Paradise operates as an unofficial Ronan Lynch blog.

I’m not kidding.

Anyway.

Read. Comment. Explore.

Enjoy.
