Thank you for checking out Wild and Wonderful Reads, a book and lifestyle blog based in Morgantown, West Virginia. I’m Kelly! I aim to share helpful and fun information for readers like reviews, lists, excerpts, and interviews, as well as tidbits from other aspects of my life as a wife and stay-at-home adoptive mom of 3. Life is chaotic, reading is my escape, and coffee keeps me going till it’s time for wine!

Wild and Wonderful Reads was formed in May 2017, its name an homage to where I live: “Wild and Wonderful” West Virginia. It originated as a space to spread my love of reading and to feed a creative need. I can get completely lost in a good book (and find myself in one, too), and I wanted to form a community to share in that same love. I took time away from blogging during the pandemic and while I was adjusting to some major life changes, including fostering then adopting 3 children, leaving my full-time job, and moving into a new house. After the hiatus, some changes were brought to the site, such as the addition of lifestyle posts.

I am very excited that you’re here, and THANK YOU for visiting my little corner of the internet!
