I'm Meredith, and I'm a wife to Justin, mom to Lizzy and Becca. I'm a Lutheran, native Oregonian, photographer, pickle-maker, and big time lover of books.
Reason for blogging
I pretty firmly believe that people/kids who don't love to read simply haven't found a book that's a good fit for them (yet). I love nothing more than helping people find books that they connect with.
Honestly, I havne't been blogging all that much lately because I'm finding that the most meaningful conversations about books are happening on Instagram lately. I'd previously been writing about books on my private Instagram account (@labuenavidamere), but found that people were often trying to tag friends in the comments of my reviews, and their friends couldn't see my posts because I was private. So, I've just recently opened up a public IG account specifically for my book reviews and recommendations (@buenavidabooknerd). I realize that Reedsy seems to be targeted towards book bloggers, so I may not be the best fit, but I've received so many email invitations to apply that I figured I'd just roll with it and be transparent about who I am and what I do.
