I’m Jamie! A Narnian, native of Middle Earth & Wakandan. While I wait for Gandalf to knock on my door, I work in publishing at Penguin Random House. Mexican food is my love language. I heart Jesus a whole lot.

I also love to write (you can see publications and book contributions here).

You may also remember my previous blogs, Books and Beverages and She Laughs With Dignity. In October 2017, I combined the two. For more details on why the change and why there are a total of zero comments on blog posts prior to Fall of 2017, here’s the post that explains the blog shift.

For previous book reviews, feel free to check out my Goodreads page. They’re all safely stored there. Just note any reviews prior to 2014-ish may have been during my “everyone gets 5 stars!!” stage. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I’m also a big fan of Instagram (follow me here) and new-ish to TikTok (follow along here). If you love Bookstores and Libraries, don’t miss the account dedicated to both here!
