Book Tag | Meet the Bookstagrammer

Hi friends! I’ve posted some of these on my bookstagram, but never here on this blog! So let me (finally) introduce myself. My name is Mandy, I just turned 30, and I live in sunny California with my husband and toddler. My pronouns are she/they. I love reading, writing, and talking about books!

How long have you been book blogging?
I have been bookstagramming and book blogging since 2017 — the blog was launched as The Wanderer Literary Journal with some college friends contributing to review articles, but eventually I branched out on my own and became Roses And Reviews.

What was your first review?
My first review was of Wild by Cheryl Strayed.

What is your favorite book?
My all-time favorite book is Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. She is easily my favorite author.

What are your favorite genres?
I love classics, historical romance, magical realism, fantasy, mythology, poetry, and YA

What is a fun-fact about you?
I can read fortunes—palm reading, tarot, and astrology are my love languages ❤ I also love gardening! Planting flowers and herbs and garden crops is something I look forward to every spring.

What do you like to binge watch?
I am obsessed with period dramas!! Regency and Tudor history are my favorites, and my dream vacation is a Jane Austen tour through England.

Where else do you post your reviews?
You can find me on GoodReads | StoryGraph | Bookstagram | TikTok | Amazon
