Tell Us A Little about You.
@Kileyisreading: I have been a lifelong reader. As a kid, I would stay with my grandparents when my parents were at work. They lived right across from the library, so I would go a few times a week during summer breaks and just read all day long. I live in the Chicago suburbs, and I currently work as a retail manager. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, watching the Cubs, and, of course, reading.
Tell Us A Little about your Bookstagram account And How It Got Started.
@Kileyisreading: I started my account January 1, 2020. I had recently had hip surgery and I would be off work with limited mobility for a few months. I was looking for something to occupy my time. I had no idea I would meet so many wonderful people in the process, and that this would grow to be a hobby of mine.
Who is your Favorite indie/small press author and why?
@Kileyisreading: My most recent favorite Indie author would be Jeneva Rose AKA J.R. Adler. I really enjoy her writing style. Her stories are so well thought out! Also, she is very relatable and has a great personality that you can see on her Instagram and TikTok videos.
What is your all time favorite indie book?
@Kileyisreading: One of the best indie books I read recently was A Perfect Marriage by Jeneva Rose. This was one of the best mystery / thriller books I have read! I am currently reading and loving Alex Six by Vince Taplin. It has been wild so far and has potential to be a top book of the year!
