How the Bookworm Life Started

My name is Samantha. I’m a 30 year old wife, mother, and home educator. I’m also an avid reader and have been since I was eight years old. My fondest childhood memories are of swapping Goosebumps books with my friends, my dad taking me to the library so I could pick out as many books as I wanted, and reading well past bedtime. No matter how many books I checked out from the library, I’d always finish them all and return them on time as well! From Goosebumps I moved on to Little House on the Prairie, then to The American Girls Samantha books (for obvious reasons), then Little Women, and so many more.

Aren't they BEAUTIFUL?!?!?!?!

It wasn’t until I got married that I really started to purchase and collect books, though. I lived in the library and my dad didn’t think it was necessary to purchase books when there were so many available for free – maybe that’s why I’m obsessed with collecting books now.

I lost a lot of time reading for pleasure during my college years. Fortunately, once I graduated college I found myself with a lot more time on my hands – at least, as much as a mother of three can really have. I realized that I wanted to share my love for books, to recommend the books I fell in love with, to find people who loved them as much as me, and to fangirl over books. I found that late in 2015 on Instagram by making a #bookstagram account. Now, I want to expand my passion for books even further through book reviews and recommendations, as well as by sharing a bit of the life of a bookworm that’s everlasting.
