Hello, I’m Eri and I’m super honored to join The Aus. Library as a co-blogger. There are a lot of exciting things to come on this blog and I can’t wait to be a part of them and the awesome team that runs it!
I was born and raised on the sunny west coast of the US, and am currently braving out the seasons in the midwest, where I attend college. I’m a newly minted English Lit major, and I’m hopefully heading towards a career in publishing, though it feels very much like a pipe dream at the moment. I’m fluent in English and Japanese, though I’m also currently studying German and a bit of Spanish, as I find languages are some of the most interesting subjects to study.

this is my most recent selfie, lol.
I care about three things quite passionately in life and those are books, sleep, and food. I adore dessert and it’s possibly my favorite part of a meal. I also have a travel wish list of places I want to visit for their food. That says a lot about how much I care about food.
I've been blogging on and off since mid-2015 on my own blog, Airy Reads, but I've been reviewing on Goodreads for much longer, and have been inhaling books from a very young age.
I usually gravitate towards two types of books, which are YA targeted books and Romance, particularly contemporary and regency. I love twisty plots and morally intriguing characters, but am always weak for a good ship. I pretty much read any sub-genre within YA, although I get really excited over thriller mystery books and retellings. I specialize in binge reading and you can often find me furiously finishing books, mostly when I’m supposed to be doing homework.
I don’t really enjoy singling out a favorite book/series, but I am devoted to the Gallagher Girls series, which hold a special place in my heart, because well, a spy school for girls is the ultimate dream and I live for the girl power and wonderful relationships that make up that series.
I spend a lot of time on Tumblr making edits for my favorite books, such as the ones below, and I also like to take bookstagram pictures as well, which is such a fun and creative way to share my love for books.
I also have a fun side project called Asian YA, which is dedicated to promoting books that feature Asian characters and/or Asian authors. It’s still in the beginning stages, but learning about books that showcase how Asia is such a diverse and rich region is something I’m very excited about.
Besides the above places, you can also find me on Twitter and I love to fangirl/chat with people about bookish things in general.
Thanks for reading, and I’m so excited to co blog with the rest of the lovely Aus Squad, Meleika, Bayram, Regi, Sara, and Sophie!
