Let's Welcome a New Member!!


A Bookish Escape Welcomes...

What's better than having Lindy, Ria, and Ro at a Bookish Escape? Let me tell you... 


Adding Mikki to the mix!! 

Thats right y’all!!  Our little family is growing!  Let's welcome our newest member...


 Mikki

What does she have to say?..



Hello, my name is Michelina, but everybody calls me Mikki ;)

I am a child of the 80's who lives in Canada.  My husband Robert is the person who found the melody to my heart (I found him on a blind date ... Best decision of my life!) We got married in 2007.  I get the occasional eye roll when I talk about my BBF, but he approves of my passion ;) 

I work with numbers all day, when I get home, I can't wait to escape with a great book. I started reading way back when I was in high school. 

Twilight was the series that made me step out of my comfort zone. Like many readers FSOG made me discover a whole new world of amazing authors and books. My ereader started getting pretty busy after that.

I love cooking, baking and .... Zumba®! I love Zumba® so much that I became an Instructor in 2011.  I attended my first Zumba® Convention last year in Orlando and I loved it!  I had to put Zumba® on the side, because I got injured (torn meniscus) and had knee surgery last September.

I'll be forever grateful to the author that saved me from a really bad rehabilitation period: Elizabeth Reyes.  Her books filled my heart with so much joy.  When I read one of her books I feel like I go back to visit my family. I hope to meet her really soon :)

From the moment I discovered all these amazing bloggers and authors I share my passion daily with my book besties.  I even found my book twin at A bookish Escape: Lindy!

I'm so happy that the girls asked me to join their family. It's an honor to be a part of such a great blog.  I look forward to sharing my passion for books with you all. 



To welcome our newest member what's better than a giveaway?!! 

Nothing!

  14. Welcome, Mikki! I can't wait to read all of your posts and reviews.
    Also, I've heard about Elizabeth Reyes before and have been meaning to read something by her. Seeing what you wrote about her books helping you through a difficult time and feeling like home, I am beyond anxious and excited to start reading some of her work! There's nothing better than a book (even better, an author) who you can count on and can always return to and feel better just by reading :)
