Hi, I’m Julie Merilatt and I’m a thirty-something bibliophile living in the suburbs of Chicago with my husband in a house full of books. I started blogging here in September 2011 as a place to archive my reviews and to write about bookish things. I have a boring corporate job, so I wanted this blog to be an outlet for my passion for reading and the written word. Since then, I have grown to love the book blogging community and have gained so many like-minded friends.
I started my education at Carthage College with aspirations to become an English teacher. Later, I transferred to North Park University where I earned my degree in English with a concentration in Writing. Reading has always been a hobby of mine, but I didn’t start writing reviews until April of 2007 and things just took off from there. I’ve written a review for every book I’ve read since then. I belong to the Amazon Vine program, I’m active on Goodreads, I occasionally talk about bookish crafts, and I love snail mail. You can also find me on Twitter and Pinterest.
