“…some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.”
– C.S. Lewis
My name is Jourdan and I’ve been a reader for as long as I can remember! When I was young, my dad used to read to me every night before I fell asleep, which created and then fostered my love of reading. The very first book I remember my dad reading to me was an abridged version of Pilgrim’s Progress…which I highly recommend! Shortly after finishing Pilgrim’s Progress, we started reading C.S. Lewis’s The Chronicles of Narnia…and I’ve been a reader ever since. Other than the Narnia series (which will always hold a special place in my heart), some of my favorite books include The Serpent King, Salt to the Sea, the Six of Crows duology, The Wrath and the Dawn, The Selection series, Little Women, and all of SJ Maas’s books. I’m a lover of fantasy and typically don’t read contemporary books…I typically read to escape, so I don’t usually enjoy reading about the real world!
Other than reading, I love…
- spending hours in cozy coffee shops
- playing with my pup Brinkley (he often makes an appearance on my instagram!)
- hanging out with my husband
- exploring old, historic cemeteries (it’s not creepy, I promise)
I love making new reader friends, so reach out to me on instagram if you want to chat!
