Welcome to Read and Wander! I’m your guide, Nikki. I’m a thirty-something mental health therapist turned full-time mom of a fearless future bookworm (fingers crossed). Outside of family and being a full-time doctoral student, I read obsessively. Turns out sleep deprivation has been good for my Goodreads Challenges. I believe books should be read with good coffee (or wine) and chocolate. Always. Fresh air, loud music, travel, and diving into a fantasy world keep me sane. My hope is to turn my love of all things bookish and serious case of wanderlust into a creative outlet while home raising a future world citizen. So prepare for an adventure through book reviews, discussions, travel experiences and sharing the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
Twilight is my favorite time of day. Not for the sparkly vampires here in the PNW but the magic of the world being both dark and bright for a brief time.
Some of my many obsessions include Linkin Park and having a playlist for pretty much everything.
If I ever changed professions it would be to study space. Or become a jedi.
Pizza is my kryptonite.
