I might as well introduce myself a little bit further with this post, so here goes nothing. My name is Cori Bostrom, I’m 24 years old, and I live in Brush, Colorado with my husband, Brett. I have been obsessed with books from a very young age, and my mom was actually a librarian while I was growing up. She used to bring home tons of books for me to read and “review” for her, and I would spend hours on end in the library picking out some good reads on my own. To further paint the picture, I was the kid who would sit underneath their locker and read during lunch. To add EVEN MORE detail to the picture, I usually spent my birthday and Christmas money on books. Fun fact, my uncle would give me an Amazon gift card every year for Christmas, and I would immediately go to my TBR pile and pick out as many books as the gift card would get me… and every year he asked me, “you know you could spend that gift card on other things, like clothes or electronics or anything else, right?” Yes, I was aware. Did that stop me? No.
I started this blog to have a place where I could express my literary perspective on the books I read and casually chat with others about them… does anyone else out there feel the need to talk about their books IMMEDIATELY after they’ve finished them? Or is that just me? Ever since I was a little girl, I loved to deep-dive into the narratives and talk to my parents about my favorite characters and my favorite writing techniques. I’m hoping you feel the same.
I primarily read fantasy, fiction, sci-fi, YA, but I am ALWAYS open to new stories and I’m hoping some of you guys have some great suggestions for me. I’m definitely NOT an expert on reading or literature, and this blog is simply for my own entertainment and to bond with some fellow book nerds. If you like what you see, give me a follow on my social media pages, and please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. Pen pals, anyone?
Besides reading, I enjoy hiking, gardening, working out, and engaging in lengthy Star Wars discussions with my husband (who also happens to love all things nerdy).
