Hi! My name is Nora, and I’m an eighteen year old college freshman attending school in the Twin Cities. I live just outside of Washington, D.C., in a house that is mostly filled with books, old movies, miscellaneous odds and ends, and then more books. You could say we’re a bit of a book-obsessed household.

My parents read to me all the time when I was little, and now I seem to have caught the bug. I’ve always liked telling other kids (and people shopping for them) about the books I love and the ones they might, too. I got to do this a lot when my parents owned a bookstore. In fact, it was my mom’s idea that I start a book blog in the first place (thanks!). I am very enthusiastic about reading and writing.

On this blog, you’ll find book reviews, pieces about authors, the occasional (or not) book-related rant, and other things that have to do with books, authors, etc. When I’m not reading or writing a review, I’m probably on Tumblr, roaming the Internet, listening to music, or procrastinating. In all likelihood, it’s a combination of all four.

If you have any questions, please write me at girlknowsbooks@gmail.com.

But what I really hope is that this blog will help you discover books that you’ll love. Have a great day!
