Avid reader. Amateur photographer. San Francisco Bay Area native. Food lover. Boston Terrier fan.

I'm currently reading The Shadow of the Wind (Carlos Ruiz Zafon), another recommendation from my Facebook 12 (25) books in 2024 challenge.

Up next: Killers of the Flower Moon (David Grann) for the Book Girls' Guide's June ICYMI challenge, After You (JoJo Moyes) for a book spiral, then Beautiful Ruins (Jess Walter) and Shogun (James Clavell), nominees in my 12 (25) in 2024 recommendations from Facebook friends.

After that we'll see what grabs me.

Find me on GoodReads and on Facebook.
