Moved over.

Hi everyone! I moved my content to a new site: kizzyreads.wordpress.com! On this site, I started over and am working on building my brand and site.

I will be focusing on my love for books. Components from this blog will be transferred over, like my reading challenge and lists.

I will be closing this site in the coming days so please don’t hesitate to follow my new site! You all have been wonderful and I appreciate everything you guys have given me. See you all soon!

To be read list

It’s either the feel of the paper or the smell. Sometimes, it’s both. Either way, I love books. I love them in paperback or hardcover form. I’m OK with e-books as well, but I’m not really reaching for them as much. Those are the upside to my relationship with books. I also have a problem with them.

I buy books like a person whose plan that day is to update his/her apocalypse food pantry. I can never have enough and it’s going to last me years. So far, I have bought more books than I have the chance to read them.

This list serves a couple of purposes: to clear out my shelves for more books that I can’t afford and to read more.

I’m capping my current list at five books, in random order.

  1. Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin*
  2. Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen
  3. The Wonder by Emma Donoghue
  4. A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro
  5. A Reunion of Ghosts by Judith Claire Mitchell

If you have recommendations or if you have read these books, please comment!

What now?

After a month or so since my last post, I’ve finally narrowed down on what I would blog about. Thanks to my Facebook friends, who have known me for years and years, I’m  blogging about books, traveling and food.

I might post about topics not listed because I don’t really have money to travel often or buy bags of books or whatever. Don’t be surprised.

I still haven’t found my niche yet. I’m hoping to discover that as I grow with this blog. I do intend to work with this.

With that being said, I will be posting soon.

Have a great day!

 

Harry Potter and how it taught me to grow up

As a child of the 90s, most of my life was spent waiting for the next Harry Potter book. At one point in my life, I stood in line for hours, dressed in tights, a crisp white button-down shirt and a dark skirt, waiting in line for the premiere of the eighth movie, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows II.” In my hand, Sirius Black’s wand that I stole from my brother and a Gryffindor button pinned on the lapel of my blazer.
