Reading Habits:
I’ve always loved books and have been reading for as long as I can remember. That doesn’t mean I’ve always been as avid a reader as I am now. I rediscovered my love of reading a few years ago when I lived in New York and needed a productive way to spend my long commutes on trains and subways. I started racing through books and never looked back.

I most often read one book at a time, usually from the library. I still manage to read at least 52 books a year, and I love tracking them on Goodreads. I like print books as much as e-books, though I prefer e-books for traveling and cuddling up with on cold nights.

I’m a member of three book clubs. As such, I’ve often struggled in the past to find book-inspired recipes to bring to meetings. So, a couple of years ago, I decided to start a blog that combined my loves of reading and food and solve that problem. On The Hungry Bookworm, I pair every book review with a recipe that is inspired by what I’ve read. It’s been an amazing writing outlet and has allowed me to connect with authors, fellow foodies, and of course, many amazing bookworms.
