Hi! My name is Sara and I am thrilled that you discovered my blog, seferlover. Sefer, in Hebrew, means book. Growing up as an only child, books were my constant companions. I loved strolling through the bookstore with my mom, who supported my voracious reading habits. Libraries became portals that provided escapes from everyday life. Through literature, I became empowered.
This blog is an eclectic mix of personal reflection, analysis, book reviews, and pop culture commentary. When I am not busy reading or writing, you can find me working as an administrative unicorn in sunny South Florida. My simple pleasures include:
- Trips to the dog park with my pup, Bobbi (#poodlemom)
- Snuggling with my tabby cat siblings, Mara & Jason
- Consuming ridiculous amounts of pop culture
- Books, books, and more books!
If you are a fellow bookworm or just want to say “hey”, feel free to drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“When you’re sad and lonely where you are, it only makes sense that you’d do whatever you could to get someplace else. That was what books were for – my lifeline, my oxygen when I was underwater, my escape. They gave me other worlds that I could inhabit, characters into whose skin I could slip. In book-world, I wasn’t chunky or clumsy, the girl whose overlarge vocabulary was the equivalent of a ‘kick me’ sign taped to my back, the girl with the ugly face, the weird clothes, the complete lack of friends…Books were a series of magic carpets, each one with the power to deliver me to another, better place.“
