Hello! Welcome to Paws and Paperbacks! I’m Breanna and I’m a self-professed book enthusiast.

I’ve been reading from a very early age and my love for books has only grown over the years. Nothing makes me happier than having friends and family reach out to me for book recommendations. I’ve been a member of Goodreads since 2010 but decided to finally take the leap into blogging in 2016 with the goal of sharing my love of books and engaging with other readers in bookish discussions.

The highest compliment you can give me is to say one of my reviews convinced you to add that book to your TBR!

On Paws and Paperbacks, I write reviews for a variety of genres, but most frequently you will find books falling under fantasy, contemporary romance, young adult, and historical fiction. My favorite authors include Laini Taylor, Roshani Chokshi, Kate Quinn, Leigh Bardugo, Tessa Dare, and Christina Lauren.

When I’m not reading, you can find me exploring the city of Chicago or working as an OB tech. I recently graduated from nursing school with my BSN and will soon be starting a new position as a Registered Nurse in the Pediatric ICU at my hospital!

Feel free to add me as a friend on Goodreads, Instagram, and Twitter!
