If any of you know me personally, (which I’m assuming most of you will, since my blog has recently launched) you’ll know that I’m a huge nerd. If I can find any excuse to pick up a book, I’ll do it. My undergrad was an Honours Specialization in English Language and Literature and Creative Writing. That key piece of information should say enough about me right there.
On a completely separate tangent (this will make sense in a second, I promise), no one ever talks about how hard it is to make friends as an adult. Now that I’m no longer in school, the workplace is really the only time you get to meet people. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with making work friends – I actually love the people I work with. However, as I’m younger than most of the people in my office, they want to hang out with their families after a long day.
So, I decided to marry my love of reading together with the hopes of making new friends! I started posting pictures of my massive book collection on Instagram and I met my newest friend Sabrina (my.miaou on Instagram). Luckily, she’s a book nerd too and we decided to start a book club together.
We brunch, we catch up on each other’s lives and we talk about our current read!
Right now, we’re reading Sweetbitter by Stephanie Danler. I don’t want to give away any spoilers, so I’ll say only this – Even if you’ve never worked in a restaurant (which we both have) the plotline is seriously gripping.
If you’re a book lover and want to join us on our reading adventures, pick up our next book, All the Light We Cannot See or follow our hashtag #AllBookedUpTO. The next pick was chosen by our friend Steven (or @silhouettedskyline) and we’re also being joined by our friend Didier (@didieryhc). Feel free to chat with us any time, as we’re always looking for fellow novel enthusiasts!
