Hello lovely readers! Welcome to my blog and what I hope will be a shared safe space for all things books. In the world of the internet my name is Misster Reader, but you can just call me M. This is both for the sake of keeping things short and sweet, and as an ode to my real name, which (shockingly) starts with the letter M.
Currently, I am nineteen years old living in the good ole’ west coast of the United States. Additionally, I am a Latinx immigrant who left her home in South America at a young age. As a result, books featuring Latinx or immigrant characters hold a dear spot in my heart. Yes, despite how rare they may be. No tea, no shade, just facts.
Hmmm, what else? Well, I am a Hufflepuff and an INFJ/INTJ. In case you’re not familiar with the lingo, or aren’t as self absorbed as me, this means I am a turtle. Meaning, I like to put up a hard confident front with the outside world, often passing as an extrovert, but really I’m just a soft sensitive mess on the inside. I care deeply about many causes including animal rights, veganism, immigration, intersectional feminism, racism, and oh gosh so much more.
I’m also an incredibly driven, focused, and ambitious person, which tends to concern my mom about my health and well being. Honestly, my fuel for life comes from channeling my many passions into work. Some of these passions include acting, writing, cooking/baking, and (you guessed it) reading.
Books are my best friend. They’ve saved me time and time again. I’ve been an avid reader since a young age, and fortunately for me that deeply cemented love of literature hasn’t left me. I began a Bookstagram in 2018 when things in my personal life took a bit of a difficult shift. As time progressed I became more serious about reading critically, posting reviews on Goodreads, and have finally decided to take the plunge and start a blog.
I won’t lie: I’m a bit nervous. However, I’ve always believed that if something’s scaring me, then that means I’m living, which is all the more reason to continue (when warranted of course). For now, I’m using these nerves to fire a light in my belly and push out as much content as I can. I hope you’ll join me on this next adventure. I know there’s no better or more supportive audience than you lovely readers.
