I’m Carla and I curate this space. If you love books, this is your space. You’ll find book reviews, posts about new releases, facts and context about authors and their work, book pairings and a lot of book talk. Let’s create this space, our space, together.

Let me show you around.

Do you want to know more about me? You have some questions? Want to spill the tea? Have any ideas to share? Click on Let’s Chat and we’ll go through them together.

If you want to know more about what I’m reading, what books to buy, what’s coming in hot from publishers, my favorite reads this month and even what’s worked in the kitchen, subscribe to my newsletter! You must have noticed the pop-up. You can also let me know through Let’s Chat.
