My name is Megan. I’m a 28-year-old muggle living in Kansas. After all this time I’m still waiting for my Hogwarts letter, even though I live in the wrong country to attend. I’m a Slytherin with a dash of Hufflepuff sprinkled on top. In case you couldn’t guess, Harry Potter is my all-time favorite book (and movies).
I’m a huge fan of fantasy and adventure and I also really love a good mystery…and horror…and anything fiction really. If it makes me feel something I’m a fan. I’m not big on nonfiction unless it’s a true crime book, I find those fascinating.
While I was waiting for my Hogwarts letter, I studied graphic design in Nebraska. I’ve worked a few graphic design jobs since graduating but I’m currently working as a custom framer. That’s artsy I guess, right?
Crocheting is my second favorite hobby, right behind reading. Books and yarn are some of my favorite things. Take me to a book store or lead me past the yarn aisle, I might not ever leave. Something else I love to to do is bake and cook, bake more than cook. I’ll be posting recipes on this blog for sure, many of them will even be based on food found in the books I’m reading.
I’m by no means a writer and have absolutely no desire to ever write a book; I just love to read them. It’s A Hardback Life was created so I would have a place to talk about the books I’m reading. No one around me ever seems to want to talk books, sad isn’t it? Why read the book when you can just watch the movie? Why read? Nothing beats picking up a good book and reading the day away.
I’m never on top of the latest trends (I didn’t even read Harry Potter until 8 years after it came out) so my reviews will probably never be on anything from the new release list. So if you’re wanting reviews on all of the latest books just coming out, this isn’t going to be the place for you. Sorry. But if you’re looking for a new book to pick up, I just might have some suggestions. And I’m always looking for new books to add to my library, so let me know some of your favorites!
Thanks for stopping by!
