Hi there and welcome to my home away from home! My name is Mackenzie and I’m the girl choking on her own tongue when teachers ask for everyone to share something fun about themselves. I graduated from Austin Peay with a Botany degree and I have every intention of turning my house into a plant paradise. So far, I’m living with and loving the single greatest human being in existence, 2 dogs, and 20+ plants. I have a passion for writing and a flair for losing track of things; I collect jars and constantly forget my glasses; and nine times out of ten I’m stressed about something. I strive to tell real stories, about real people, in surreal settings. I used to consider myself fickle, but I'm starting to realize there are a lot of things in this life worth loving, and very little time to write it all down.
About the Blog
This little reading room nestled in the cozy confines of the internet is where I welcome book lovers and bibliophiles for tea and communion. Here, you’ll find my personal writing, a library stocked with book reviews and must reads, and writing tips I’ve learned to love and live by. My door is always open. So please, come in, cozy up, and unwind among friends.
Again, welcome to my home. Please, don’t mind the mess.
A Lifetime of Reading
Once I have things a little more established on this blog, I'd like to create an interactive reading list of all the books I've ever read and plan to read. It will cover everything I loved, reviews I’ve posted, and books I can’t wait to dive into!
Until then, here’s a sneak peek at my top picks!
Moon Called from the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs
Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin
Calling Me Home by Julie Kibler
Going Bovine by Libba Bray
