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:
- Book blogger
- Cat enthusiast
- Works in book distribution
- Netgalley member
- Goodreads addict – feel free to add me there
- B.A. in Italian Lit from Tulane University
- Has lived in: New Orleans, San Diego, Bologna Italy.
- Native English speaker; fluent-ish in Italian
- Proficient in French, Spanish, Latin
- Very basic German
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 mythology, Irish lit, and East Asian fiction. All reviews are spoiler-free unless otherwise indicated.
