About Me

screen-shot-2017-02-12-at-5-20-16-pmHi there, I’m Morgan!

I’m 30 and live in the Bay Area with my husband and our beagle Andy. Andy loves books and is a great reading companion so I thought The Bookish Beagle was an apt description!  Plus I like that it reminds me of an English tea house or pub with a silly name.

I’m an excitable person- I LOVE to love things! It fills me with such joy that I want to talk and text and tweet about my passions and use exclamation points and capitals ALL THE TIME! I have a lot of diverse nerdy interests so there’s always something to be excited about and something to look forward to. Especially books.

I’m obviously a big reader. My childhood/teens were filled with books but I didn’t read a lot in college and immediately after- too much schoolwork. Harry Potter was the main exception and I’ve reread them more times than I can count!

Once I discovered Twitter, Goodreads, and book blogs, I found a whole new way to discover and covet books, and share my experiences! I read mostly YA now (fantasy, sci fi, fairy tale retellings, cute contemporaries, gothic, historical fiction) but still love adult books too, especially historical fiction, rom coms, and authors like Kate Morton. I especially love any book with a good ship 😉 Before starting The Bookish Beagle, I blogged at Gone with the Words for the past couple years and loved it!

Sometimes all at once! My twitter tends to be bookish by day, sporty by night, and active all. the. time. And my TBR pile is out of control, as I’m sure you can imagine. I’m a big fan of fantasy football, baking, the Lakers, caps lock, french fries, WWE, Hamilton, Sam Hunt, “oh my god”, Sebastian Stan, ASOIAF theories, and everything Disney.

Thanks for stopping by!
