Welcome to electricYAWP! I am a late-twenty-something Midwestern bibliophile. In 2nd grade, when I discovered the Boxcar Children series, I became hooked on books, carrying them with me everywhere. Literally. The bus, class, restaurants, the dentist, family gatherings, you name it, I always had a book with me. Even now I bring my reading with me whenever I can (though I was once scolded for trying to bring a book to a bar).
I love the freedom that books give. New worlds, new characters, and new ideas. Reading is exciting, thought provoking, and it gives me a much needed escape from drab reality.
There really is no one genre that I am hooked on, though I do tend to stay within the realm of YA fiction, adult literature, and fantasy.
In addition to books, I have a great love for all things outdoors and artsy. I enjoy exploring what nature has to offer via hiking and kayaking. I collect a dangerously large amount of orphaned and unwanted houseplants, much to my husband’s annoyance. I went to college for horticulture, so plants are kinda my thing.
As of August 2017, I am a mom! Woah. Still feels weird to say that. I love my Scrunchy Face like crazy and am learning the ropes of being a SAHM.
For me, this blog is a space to brain dump and reflect. Thanks for visiting!
