Who Am I_

Hello |  Hola | こんにちは | 你好 | Bonjour

Cliff-notes: Ravenclaw, ENFP, #writer, #reader, serial consumer of Chausson aux Pommes, sniffs books, anxiety-disorder,  inside voice not included.

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 freelance writer. When I’m not working, I love getting lost in the sea of bookshelves at Seattle Central Library, playing experimental chef in my kitchen, and snapping photos with my Canon T6i.

Anytime you purchase a book or item through one of the links embedded in each post, we make a small profit. And by small, I mean you can’t hardly see it with a magnifying glass. So, we don’t make a lot and you, of course, do not incur additional charges.

Although I do review teas from Plum Deluxe monthly, I am not affiliated with their company. I just really like their teas ♥
