Hi! I’m Rachel and I live on an island in the middle of the ocean with all the allure of majestic palm trees and spine tingling storms.

I love all things bookish, so this is my little place to talk about the books I love, the books I am writing, the writerly things I discover and review and recommend excellent reads!

I have always loved reading and writing, and if I’m not curled up with a book or a notebook, I’m taking photos of my beautiful island home!

For anyone intrigued by what life is like living on an island, you’ve come to the right place. I post photos and stories regularly on my Instagram page, link on the home page.

My first love is fresh ground coffee, but I also appreciate a good cup of builders tea. Early mornings are not my best time, but the middle of the night? I always get my best ideas!
