Get to Know Me!
HEY it’s Carly-Rae! I am so excited to have you visit my blog.
Honestly, I never thought my book community would ever grow so big. It is truly beyond my imagination. Each and every bookish bestie you make my day brighter and I am so grateful for your messages!
Currently, I am attending Harvard. It is a true dream come true to be attending Harvard and pursuing a degree in English. I’m also an influencer for Random House, Berkley Publishing, Inkyard Press, Simon & Schuster, Doubleday Books, and more. I’ve also featured many books from Disney Books, Hallmark Publishing, HarperCollins, and many more!
I did not join the world of social media when it first came about. I waited about two years before creating an account. To this day, I can still remember the day I joined social media. I would always take selfies of my outfit of the day (yes, I do love a good selfie and will never deny that!). While shopping, wearing a hot pink maxi, I decided to create an account and post those selfies. I asked my audience that consisted of just my family YAY or NAY. After the first few posts, my photos went from having single-digit ‘likes’ to three-digit ‘likes.’ Before my eyes, my audience grew from just my family to currently the tens of thousands who follow me from all around the world.
I love sharing my fashion picks but my true passion is books. It is why I combine my love for fashion with book covers because yes I dress to match my current read!
Many of you might know me as a BookTuber and Bookstagrammer. I have been so fortunate to chat with bestselling authors, and I am so honored to get the chance to do that because I truly do love it. You can catch my Book Hour airing live on my Facebook Page Wednesdays at 1 o’clock eastern. No worries if you miss it. I always repost. Chatting with authors, diving into their world of writing, and getting whisked away to faraway lands in books is where my heart is locked away.
Perhaps that is why I am currently writing a YA Fantasy book as I type these words. You can find more on my writing journey on my YouTube Channel as I share the reality of writing. I have never published a book before and am taking you on my whirlwind ride of finding an agent.
