I really can't remember a time when I wasn't in love with books. Books have always been such an important part of my life - I read to learn, to travel to new and exciting places, to escape everyday cares, to meet a new best friend. I hope that as you visit Ali's Book Nook you will be able to find a new companion in your reading adventures.
A Little About Ali
I grew up in lush, green Western Washington. After a few years in college, I moved to Utah where I met my husband. We have been married for 15 years and have 2 sweet daughters (10 & 8). Our family lived in South Carolina for almost 10 years before we came back out West and now live in the beautiful mountains of Utah again.
Being from Western Washington, it rained quite a bit when I was growing up. To escape the constant dampness I would get cozy under a blanket and listen to the raindrops while I read. Lazy summer days were spent sitting in the rare sunshine and reading with friends in the backyard or on the porch. Every week there were trips to the library to find a new book and new friendly characters. Those trips to the library have continued throughout my life and I love seeing the excitement on my girls faces as they pick out new books to read too.
A Little About Ali's Book Nook
There are so many wonderful things about books and I've longed to find an online community to participate in. I decided to create one here in hopes of reaching other book lovers! I enjoy sharing a weekly post with recommendations of the best new books published that week, reviews of old favorites, reviews of current reads, book lists, meet the author events, and book related crafts.
