Hello and welcome! I’m Dawn, reading enthusiast and book reviewer. I have been reading books for many years and come by my love for it naturally. My dad started his career as a school librarian and taught me how to use the library.  My mom began her career as a remedial reading teacher. I had an amazing primary school librarian who turned me on to great children’s books authors such as Judy Blume, Beverly Cleary and Madeleine L’Engle.

I live in Vancouver, British Columbia with my husband and our three daughters.  I am a stay-at-home mom and non-practicing accountant.  I grew up in Kansas and attended Wichita State University.  After graduation I moved to Colorado where I met my husband and attended graduate school at Regis University.  We moved to Vancouver during the Winter Olympics in 2010, which was a pretty amazing time to arrive in Canada.  I spend a fairly large chunk of time reading but also enjoy running along the beach or in the forest, cross country skiing, and yoga.
