My name is Lisa and I have been married for 20 years. I am a busy mom of 3, which are my joy and passion. I am a licensed marriage and family therapist by profession and enjoyed having my private practice. However, I closed my practice after our little girl joined our family and am enjoying being a SAHM. While I do intend to return to my profession of counseling, I am enjoying the time I have to spend with my family. I enjoy pilates, walking with my family, swimming, and of course-reading!
I have always read from the time I was a little girl. I even read a children’s dictionary once because I wanted to learn new words.
Because of my joy for reading, friends will often ask which books I recommend. Then, there were times when I didn’t know what to read next, so I would browse the internet to read what bloggers suggested. From there, the idea of book blogging peaked my interest and the rest is history, so they say. This blog is about books read, reviews I’ve written on those books, author interviews, book spotlights on books I’ve not read yet but think you may enjoy, and other tidbits along the way.
While I tend to be a private person, my blog may contain snippets of family life. However, my blog truly stays primarily about books.
I hope you will join me on my book blog journey and look forward to hearing about your thoughts regarding books as well!
