My name is Wren.
I’m a 29-year-old southern dweller who enjoys reading, cooking, and yoga, and who will probably never be an aficionado at any of these things individually (I have way too many interests to settle on just one area of expertise!). I am also co-mom to one mischievous dog, Basil, and two sassy cats, Edith and Katniss.
When I’m not at work, you can find me spending time with my pets, family, and friends; watching Netflix (what? I’m only a 21st-century human); cooking a new dish while listening to my favorite podcasts; or cleaning. Because I’m kind of a Monica.

Favorite Cozy Reads
Whether crisp and refreshing or warm and cozy...
...here are a handful of past reads that have given me major fall vibes.
For the dystopian lover who enjoys quirky theater and the occasional comic book...
“First we only want to be seen, but once we’re seen, that’s not enough anymore. After that, we want to be remembered.”
A world where the internet is broken and your main source of entertainment is a traveling Shakespeare company.
For the literary buff who likes a complicated anti-heroine...
“... oh, insane, ludicrous, unknowable world! Look how she wanted to live, look how she wanted to hold on.”
Your former high school math teacher you either love or hate (and she probably feels the same way about you, tbh).
For the reader who isn’t intimidated by magical realism or multiple narratives...
“The power of words. They weaseled under door crevices and through keyholes. They hooked into invididuals and wormed through generations.”
Ah, the age old question...if you could be told the date of your death would you want to know? The Gold siblings would probably advise against it.
For the masochistic reader who wants their heart ripped clean out of their mf chest...
“You never got what you wanted; you just learned to get by without it.”
The heartbreaking tragedy of parents resting all their hopes and dreams on their kids, but written so beautifully you don’t even care.
For the romantic who fantasizes about meeting the love of her life in a coffee shop...
“What do you do when you're in love with the last man in the world you can have? You plan a life, a real life, without him.”
Meet Cornelia, who loves classic film and her older sister’s husband. Oh, and she takes in an abandoned eleven-year-old. Don’t worry, it gets better.
