me, the blogger!
Hello! My name is Ava, and I’m the blogger here at Bookishness and Tea. I currently reside in northern California, and am a teenager who (quite obviously) adores books. I also enjoy photography, and dream of traveling the world while blogging and writing. I love all things book related, as well as TV shows, traveling, writing, being barefoot, mountains, autumn, and penguins. Besides books, music is my everything, and is something I could not live without. If you’re curious, I especially love: Oh Wonder, The 1975, Twenty One Pilots, Lana Del Rey, and Panic! At The Disco. I enjoy social media, and love that it allows me to meet people worldwide who share a love of books. I’m an advocate for diversity and an intersectional feminist, and love reading books that feature characters different and like me, by authors of color, LGBTQIAP+, neurodiverse, and disabled authors.
Oh, hey, it’s me again! I also love to write, and have way too many ideas and not enough time to write them all. I participate in NaNoWriMo and Camp NaNo every year, and I’ve currently won NaNo once, but hopefully that number will increase in future years. I write YA books featuring diverse characters, and my dream is to get one published. If you’re a writer as well, I offer sensitivity and beta reads. You can learn more about them here.
This blog is titled bookishnessandtea because it basically describes my life perfectly: I love books, and all kinds of tea. On this blog, you’ll find discussions, blogging tips, sometimes reviews, and a whole lot of other things. This blog has an emphasis on diversity and diverse books, and that is much of what you will see here. I will not tolerate hate or discrimination here; it’s a safe space for me and all others that visit this blog.
