Hey everyone! Welcome to my blog and my very first blog post! I started this blog as a companion to my Bookstagram page @brittsbookclub on instagram. If you’re a lover of books, go ahead and check it out and if you enjoy what you see, give it a follow.
So, let’s talk about me (a bit narcissistic but I suppose people might want to know who’s behind the words here). My name is Brittani and I’m a registered nurse currently living and working in Los Angeles, CA. I work in a Level IV neonatal ICU and care for sick infants and newborns. I love what I do and I am convinced I have found the perfect profession.
Until recently, I had been so busy with school that I wasn’t able to travel. Now though, thanks to nursing and a flexible work schedule, I’m always planning my next trip. Last year I attended Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany and in April my sister and I took a trip to Costa Rica. I just got back from a trip to Bosnia and Herzegovina with my parents and my next trip will be a Harry Potter euro tour in London and Scotland coming up here in just a couple of weeks! I just love getting to see different cultures and parts of the world!
One of the most important things about me, which you’ll catch glimpses of on my instagram page, is that I’m a dog mom. Now I’m sure all dog owners would claim that their dog is the best, but… my dog is THE best. His name is Opie and he’s a three-year-old golden retriever I got off craigslist. It’s kind of a crapshoot when buying something off craigslist, but I truly got lucky. He’s got the best temperament and loves the water, so we always make our way to the beach, lakes, or pools. He keeps me going! Look for him in my instagram posts!
Lastly, I guess I should talk a little bit about the reason this blog was started. BOOKS! I love to read and recently got into the Bookstagram scene. I noticed most people have blogs to tag along with their instagram pages, so I thought why not? My favorite genre is domestic thrillers. I love a good family secret! Through doing this, I’ve found that I also enjoy other genres I never would have glanced at before. I used to think that historical fiction had to be the most boring genre ever because I don’t like history. Boy was I wrong. The historical fiction book The Nightingale, by Kristin Hannah, has become one of my favorite books and I now find myself reading many different books of the genre! I hope through my blog and instagram page that I’ll be able to discover books that I would have never thought twice about before. I’m trying to open my mind to all the possibilities out there!
So that’s a little something about me. I could continue talking about myself but that could go on and on and on and on (you get the point?) and eventually you’d be tired of me. So, if there’s something I didn’t talk about that you’re just dying to know, shoot me a little message! I’m looking forward to discovering all the wonderful books with you!
