Oh… hey there! It’s me… Bri. Enjoying this much needed kiwi-strawberry mimosa.

So you’ve stumbled across my little universe, eh? Well… guess I should let you know a little about me and what B+S is all about while you’re here, huh? 

 

Hmmm… Ok… First: 

 

Hey everyone… I’m Bri. I’m a 30 something she/her residing in ATL, GA with my husband and two dogs (Bear and Poka). One day, I woke up with this crazy idea that I could combine my two loves: reading and talking and turn them into a dual-blog where I would be able to express not only my love for all things bookish but also my spiritual side. Seemed like an impossible task… how could I ever turn both of these things into a singular organism? I had to be insane to even attempt it! 

Luckily for me, being insane is kinda my kink, so, of course, if anyone could do it… it would be me.

So, I did! I created  Books and Shadows (B+S): a little place where the Magic of Books collides with the Magic of our Universe. 

 

Here, you can find an enchanting blend of book reviews, bookish news, book tags, book memes and product showcases, coupled with a podcast where I speak on everything witchy. I mean… I created my own world where the rules don’t apply. I’m basically Neo… don’t fight me about it, this life just chose me.
