About Me

Hi there, I'm Marcia.

Thanks for visiting.  I'm beyond thrilled you're here!

A bit About Me:

I'm a Book and Lifestyle Blogger who loves photography and hopes to write a book someday... Oh and I'm both an Excessive Coffee Drinker & Obsessive Thinker...

I'm also a Financial Analyst by day, so the purpose of this blog is to ignite my imagination and creativity while taking me away from the logical world of numbers. (boring!)

I hope you stick around and join me on this journey of random adventures...

"I believe that stories are incredibly important, possibly in ways we don't understand, in allowing us to make sense of our lives, in allowing us to escape our lives, in giving us empathy and in creating the world that we live in."    Neil Gaiman

Some Fun Facts:
I started a local Book Club in 2017 and we now have 100+ members (click on Book Club to read more about it).  We meet once a month to talk about the book we just read, drink some wine (or not) and meet new people. 

My favorite color is blue but I dress in black 90% of the time (did you guess where I live yet?), so I have been slowly adding some color to my wardrobe – the key word here is “slowly”.

I have a dog named Maggie.  She is very photogenic so you'll see her in a lot of my photos.

Review Policy:
I only accept review requests with the understanding that you will provide a free physical copy of your book to be reviewed.  If I agree to review your book, I will clearly state that I was given the book in exchange for an honest review.  I will then post the review on this blog, Goodreads, Amazon and social media (Instagram/Twitter). 
I don't post reviews below 3 stars, so in the event that I don't enjoy your book, I won't post a review.
