About Welcome, I’m Alyson, and for as long as I can remember I’ve always loved books. As a child, I fell in love with reading with Ann M. Martin’s The Baby-Sitters Club series, American Girl books, and books by Judy Blume, who to this day is still one of my favorite authors. I can always be found with my Kindle or a book in hand and talking about books on my bookstagram, @alysonbookishthoughts. I’m a sucker for a happy ending since books to me are my daily way to unwind. I’ll really read anything where the synopsis grabs my attention, but my favorite genres are romance, contemporary fiction, thrillers, and historical fiction. I live and work on Long Island as a marketing manager for a nonprofit. One of my favorite hobbies aside from reading is photography, especially nature photography.
