about

Hi, I’m Rachel!

If you’re wondering what the heck my username is, it’s pronounced PAH-chay, a-MORE-ay, LEE-bree.  Or just ‘peace, love, and books,’ if you prefer.

Here are the basics:

I’ve been blogging since January 2017 and I’m having a blast.  Note: this is not a YA lit blog!  I will read YA on occasion, but at least 95% of what you’re going to see here is adult lit.  I’m particularly interested in finding other adult lit fans in the blogging world, so if that’s you, come say hi!  I read across most genres, but my three main niche interests tend to be Greek mythologyIrish lit, and East Asian fiction.  All reviews are spoiler-free unless otherwise indicated.
