A Brief Blog Profile: Read. Breathe. Relax.
Read. Breathe. Relax. is a young adult fantasy book blog by social media consultant and "mega avid reader" Lisa Parkin.
"My personal escape is opening a book and settling down for a good read," Parkin said. "If it involves coffee and some pie, so much the better."
How does one get addicted to young adult fantasy books? For Parkin, it began with a long and hard family journey.
"I’ve been reading fantasy/sci fi novels since I first picked up Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone when I was in the fifth grade," she said in her blog. "My mom was going through radiation treatments after undergoing breast cancer surgery, and I tagged along to all her appointments."
The empty waiting rooms quickly got boring. So, Parkin picked up a book.
Read. Breathe. Relax. covers book reviews and other topics, including pairing books with themed meals, book-related jewelry, and ebook deals.
A recent post includes the top 10 books Parkin's read so far this year.
