Hi Guys! It’s Jess, here to introduce on of two new contributors to Gone with the Words! Tomorrow, you’ll meet our other awesome gal, but today is all about…
Let’s hear from her now…
Hello there, I’m Morgan! I’m 28 and live in the Bay Area with my husband and our beagle. First (obvious) thing to know: I looove books. Reading them, collecting them, looking at them, coveting them. All books, all the time!
I recently met up with a friend that I met studying abroad in England who I hadn’t seen in seven years. Of course my husband asked her, “What was Morgan like?” “Well… she was always very excited.” I laughed because it’s the perfect way to describe me. I LOVE to love things! It fills me with such joy that I want to talk and text and tweet about my passions and use exclamation points and capitals ALL THE TIME! I’m always nerdy, sometimes girly, and have a lot of diverse interests.
I’ve always adored reading. I read my first chapter book when I was 7, got hooked, and must have read a hundred Nancy Drew books. I was binge reading before I learned what binge reading was. My childhood/teens were filled with books but I didn’t read a lot in college and immediately after- too much schoolwork. Harry Potter was the main exception. I’ve reread them more times than I can count. Comfort reading
Once I discovered Twitter, Goodreads, and book blogs, I found a whole new way to discover and covet books, and share my experiences! I read mostly YA now (fantasy, sci fi, fairy tale retellings, cute contemporaries, gothic, historical fiction) but I still love adult books too, especially historical fiction, chick lit, thrillers, and authors like Kate Morton. Besides books, I love movies (LOOOVE movies- all kinds!), basketball, football, fall, history, the beach, baking, genealogy, twinkle lights, writing, chai tea lattes, Britishness, Harry Potter, and Disneyland.
Is she not a perfect fit for Gone with the Words?! We like being excited about things here too. And we love puppies! And movies! And obvs, books! :)
Be sure to leave her some welcoming words! And don’t forget to stop by tomorrow. :)
