About Me

Hello |  Hola | こんにちは | 你好 | Bonjour

I’m Ari, creator of Ravenous for Reads. As you can guess, I love to read. Like, it’s an obsession and I have no desire to recover from it. I am currently pursuing a B.A in English with a minor in Japanese Folklore. I live with my husband, Chris, in Seattle Washington, where I work as a freelancer. When I’m not working, I love getting lost in the sea of bookshelves at Seattle Central Library, trying new foods, hanging out with friends, snapping photos with my Canon T6i; planning Booktube videos and reviewing newly obtained teas.


Fun Facts About Me:

∅  I’m an ENFP, Leo, Ravenclaw, and gamer. Right now, I’m playing Alien Isolation (yikes!) Assassins Creed Syndicate, and Prey.

∅ Rainy days + Lemon knit slippers + sad folksy-Indie tunes + good book = FAVORITE DAYS!

∅ Favorite authors: Neil Gaiman, Lang Leav, Leigh Bardugo, Cassandra Clare, Stephen King, Octavia Butler, Isaac Asimov, John Scalzi, Emily Bain Murphy, Andy Weir, and Arthur C. Clarke.

∅ Shows I constantly revisit: Haven, Flash, Arrow, Noragami, The Walking Dead, Dark Matter, Roswel, Sense8, Supernatural, Broadchurch….. gosh, I think I have a serious Netflix addiction.

∅ Colors I adore: gray and teal.

∅ I’m preparing to publish Elsewhere We Became, a collection of poetry that explores the transition from childhood to adulthood as a foster child and the transitory nature of “home”. I am current writing a Young Adult Magical Realism novel 

∅ a playlist of I carry with me:



Ravenous for Reads is an affiliate with Book Depository and Amazon. Every time you buy a book using one of our links, we make a teeny bit of money that I always put towards buying new books or maintaining the blog.

Though I review a significant amount of teas, I am not affiliated with any specific tea companies.
