Meet the Blogger

Greeting friends and welcome to my corner of the internet!

I’m Kal… a thirty-something California gal who absolutely loves reading, travel, hiking, tea, video games, and unicorns. I enjoy strong female characters and anti-heroes, and when not engrossed in a book can be found communing with nature. ๐ŸŒฒ

As long as I can remember I have always loved reading, and I am sure that you can say the same! After decades only reading books of “significant literary merit,” I expanded my horizons while backpacking in South America with free Kindle books and found excitement with new worlds thought up in sci-fi novels and the way they explore religious themes, good murder mysteries that rival crime procedural dramas on television, philosophy that feed my soul, and everything in between.

For a bit more about me and what you can expect to find on my little corner of the Internet, check out my welcome post! If you want to learn more about the blog, check out About the Blog.

Other Things I Like:

– My cat, Devi
Battlestar Galactica and Buffy the Vampire Slayer are tied for #1
– I really like the band Bad Religion. I’ve seen them 28 times live.
– Space (seriously, I want to go there) ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿš€๐Ÿš€๐ŸŒŒ
Coheed and Cambria, their concept albums, and their comics

I don’t think any of us expected to love This Mortal Coilย as much as we did or to fall so hard for a ship (especially me, the reader with a heart of stone). But fall we did and the experience was so much fun that we decided to do at least monthly group reads together and we chose a name to honor our start because we are hella extra.
