Welcome to rainstormreads!

Hello and welcome! My name is Bella, and I am beyond excited to be launching rainstormreads! Books have been among my dearest companions for as long as I can remember, and literature is undoubtedly one of the great loves of my life. I can’t count the number of times I’ve read into the wee hours of the morning because I couldn’t bear to sleep without knowing how a story would end, or all the occasions I was warned to be more aware of my surroundings and stop walking around with my nose in a book. Looking back, I have no regrets about being reprimanded in class for stealthily (or so I thought) reading books under my desk. No matter what else is going on in my life at a given time, I’ve always found a harbor within books and held their words close in my heart.

During my life, countless stories have resonated with me or caused me to contemplate issues that were addressed. Additionally, writing has long been the outlet that I feel most comfortable expressing my thoughts and feelings through. With much overthinking and encouragement of friends, I decided to combine these passions in the form of a blog on which I will share reviews, rambles, and other literature-related thoughts. By starting rainstormreads, I hope to promote a diverse array of literature and connect with others through a shared love of reading. 

Special shoutout to Cossette from teatimelit for consistently encouraging me in this endeavor from the beginning, as well as for assisting me with the graphics for this blog. Thanks also to Storyseekers, the live updates group chat, and other dear friends for showering me with love and support! You have all my love and appreciation. πŸ’œ

Thank you all for visiting my blog! I’m thrilled to begin my blogging journey, and I hope you’ll join me in this adventure!

With love,
