Why "Quite A Novel Idea"?


"I love words...either they wound me or they seduce me."

For as long as I can remember, I've been captivated by words and their power to pull me in. Growing up, I was socially awkward (still quite introverted at times *shrugs*) and some of my best friends were in the pages of the books I read. Novels in particular were a treat I couldn't wait to indulge in! The characters that awaited, the clever word play, the highs and lows. The possibilities were endless and I was always down for a good read.

However, my love for books wasn't exactly the "it" thing in middle school. So I tried to conceal it and find similar interests with other kids my age. Fast forward and this is what I've realized. Those people I wanted so desperately to be like are long gone...but my books... my books are still there. 

Considering how much I love to read, I must confess that I was in a bit of a reading rut for...don't judge me... a year. I know, I know! However, my love of literature didn't go down without a fight and in January 2015, I started a book club. It was one of the most terrifying and exciting things I've done! It required me to put myself out there and possibly be left standing alone. And just so we're clear, I'm the girl whose hands are firmly folded when volunteers for karaoke are requested. Yep, that girl lol.

However, what began as an audacious shot in the wind grew from a small group of friends to a group of many amazing women!

I'm so excited to share my love of books, words, fashion and so much more here with you. Stay tuned. Can't wait to see how we grow together.

  1. I never really had a burning desire to read books. It either took too long or bored me, but the day I decided to be a part of Cover 2 Cover (the BEST book club in Atlanta) I developed a passion for books. I became a fan of the adventure I could go on from words on a page. I really appreciate you taking the time out to share your point of view on the books you've read. All I ask is that you don't judge me as I obsess over your blog lol
