Kindred Spirits

Thank you for vising my site! I have had such a great time meeting and networking with authors, writers and readers on my Instagram page that I decided to build a website to allow me to add more content and hopefully, continue to grow that network.

While my IG site has primarily been dedicated to reading, this site will also include my travels. As San Augustine said, “the world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” Both traveling and reading have enriched my life with the introduction of different cultures and varying points of views.

“Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It’s splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world.” 

~ L.M. Montgomery

For as far back as I can remember, reading has been a constant companion. Books have proven to be dependable at every stage of life. I escaped the awkward phased and ignored the mean girls alongside Pony Boy, Johnny and Dallas from S.E. Hinton’s The Outsiders. And what pre-teen girl wasn’t thankful for Judy Blume answering all the questions we were too mortified to ask in Are You There God? It’s Me Margaret? 

As I quickly approach the big 4-0, books have never stopped being my favorite past time, conversation topic and “go-to” whether sad, happy or curious.  In Anne of Green Gables, Anne Shirley said, “Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It’s splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world.” While Anne was not referencing books, the characters I have met and the authors who have painted them so vividly have always felt like my kindred spirits.


Welcome, friend! My name is Brandy and I started this blog to share the love of my favorite things, specifically reading and traveling. Writing is also a passion of mine. By day, I am one of those odd creatures who enjoys writing policies, procedures and project plans. My dream is to write my own book one day but for now I am perfectly paced.
