Hello! My name is Kourtni and I’m the one behind this blog! I’m 24 years old but still addicted to reading YA. I love primates, food, video games, and (of course) books. And because no book blogger’s “about me” would be complete without it: I’m Ravenclaw.
I work full-time as a case manager helping individuals who are on parole successfully re-enter the community and part-time as a bookseller at Barnes & Noble. Please keep in mind that any opinions I share on my blog do not reflect the views of either company that I work for and are mine and mine alone!
Kourtni Reads was originally started on Tumblr in December of 2015. About a month later, I decided to also create a (somewhat) more professional blog here. Since then, I’ve found that I really enjoy this blog and have put most of my energy into this one.
I blog primarily about young adult books, but occasionally include adult, new adult, and nonfiction as well. My favorite genres include sci-fi, fantasy, dystopian, contemporary, thrillers, and historical fiction, so, as you can see, I read a pretty big mix of different things. If you have any book recommendations for me, feel free to let me know! I’m always looking to add to my already completely absurd TBR.
I also have a Society6 store, Eclectic Midnight Designs. Not all of my designs are book-related, but I do have plenty that are. This is a way for me to keep myself motivated to work on my graphic design skills, but I sincerely hope that you’ll be able to find something you like! Feel free to tweet me a picture of what you’ve got – I’d love to see it!!
