About Me

I’m Victoria, a 20-something year old avid reader and obsessive tea drinker. I have always had a strong passion for reading and with time, this passion has only increased. I made a decision to start blogging to provide me with an outlet to talk about books.

In January of 2017, I began my blogging journey on Tumblr and in March of 2018, I moved over to my new home, on WordPress!

A little about me

Fun Facts

I have always loved reading and I attribute the Harry Potter series for fuelling this passion.  I love reading and collecting physical books and only resort to using an e-reader when travelling. The feel of flipping through the pages of a book is the best.

I am an Elementary School teacher and am qualified to teach Kindergarten to grade six. I’m excited to introduce my current and future students to wonderful worlds and adventures through the written word.

I love dogs. My two Border Collies are my constant companions and are always around while I’m reading. Skype is nine, and Rory is two.

Apart from reading, I love watching television. I constantly wish that I was living in Stars Hollow, bonding with Rory about books. Friends is always on repeat. Need TV recommendations? Feel free to ask!

Fun Facts

My favourite authors include JK Rowling, Sarah J Maas, Cassandra Clare, Stephanie Garber, Helen Hoang and Jane Austen (I’m a sucker for Pride and Prejudice!)

I love to wrap myself up in a blanket and read on the couch or sit down by the dock at my cottage, overlooking the lake. You’ll most likely find me with a cup of tea while reading. That being said, I am not very adventurous when it comes to trying new flavours.

I am based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
