Former Fashion Designer . Forever Bookworm.

Hey! I’m Kat and I hype books! 

I help avid and reluctant readers find representation in their next favorite book using theatrics, fashion, cosplay, and book spotlights on social media by way of The Bay Area in California.

I graduated, class of 2021, Magna Cum Laude with a BA in Library Science and currently pursuing my MLIS at SJSU. 

I aim to promote reading as a way of life for the rest of my life! Please check out my links online and stay tuned for binge-worthy recommendations! I also share tips for genealogy research online.
