Hi, I’m Megan!
Welcome to Devouring a Book. I am so glad you are here. Reading has been my favorite outlet since I can remember. Growing up, I was never without a book or something to read. I would read the cereal boxes, shampoo bottles, “funny pages”, magazines, anything that had words – I would devour it (hence the name of this blog). I read Nancy Drew books, Lurlene McDaniel novels, Harry Potter and more.
In High School I didn’t mind reading the assigned books but I still would find myself checking out “pleasure reads” at the local library to read in my down time – if that ever happened. I was the editor-in-chief of our school’s literary magazine, was the president of Spanish Club, did studio dance and always had a job. Finding time to read, and keep a social life was always tough but somehow I don’t think I missed out on either.
Fast forwarding through the blurry college years brings us to my current reading life. I am a working mom of 2. I just finished my MBA and was finding myself with more free time than I have ever been used to having. I occasionally binge television shows with my husband, but the majority of my non working/cleaning/momming time is spent reading. I am part of a local book club, love meeting new friends on bookstagram, go book thrifting like it’s my job and am on the Board of Directors for our local library’s non-profit, non-partisan organization that works to improve and promote public library services.
My goal of this site is to provide you with my honest book reviews, lists (who doesn’t love lists?), and other content I think book friends would enjoy.
Thanks for being here – let’s get to reading!
