About Me

Name’s Jessica. I’m 26.

I started reading the Baby Sitter’s Little Sister when I was seven, and after that, I grew hungry for more. Eager to support this, my mom signed me up with the Baby Sitter’s Club and I would read through the series with abnormal speed. After that I sought books in the school library. (This also fueled my desire to become a writer.) 

I became an angst teenage and started to experience depression. The way I coped with depression was to drown myself in a book and refused to surface for air until I felt better. I didn’t read the Harry Potter series- I lived them. I cried with them, I prayed with them, I fought with them, and I died with them.Anyone with depression can tell you that the weight of it is paralyzing. As years came and gone, I got caught up in work and the life of an adult. The terror about depression is the darkness is inside of you working its way out.

There are times when I feel like a stranger among my own thoughts. It changes your actions, creates a different person and causes you to feel isolated and alone.

I guess this is what leads me to now. Now I am seeking the peace that a good book always gives. Battling depression and anxiety has become my life, and sometimes it’s a challenge to do the simplest of tasks, like getting out of bed. I like the idea of a book community that shares reviews and recommendations.I am always willing to try and read something new, but my faves are Supernatural/Paranormal Romances. I have recently been entice by YA, or Young Adult.

“Fairy tales are more than true; 
not because they tell us that dragons exist, 
but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.” 
― G.K. Chesterton
