About Me

A little about me.
Hey! I’m Melissa, a sassy, sweary, not-so-typical single mom with a passion for reading and travel.  I love nighttime, fires, fall, cupcakes, adventures, shenanigans, and this little boy who calls me mom. I eat, sleep, and breathe all things Gilmore Girls and I hate the color purple. I’m also a Gryffindor.
I’ve mastered the art of doing it all on my own with a vengeance, fueling my days with books, music, laughter, sarcasm, and occasionally a few glasses of wine. I suffer from RBF and I’m a recovering perfectionist who’s learned to embrace my mistakes and love my flaws because nobody’s perfect and frankly, I don’t want to be. I’m not about pretending that life is pretty and perfect, I’m about being honest, down to earth, and real. I’m not an expert in anything other than cleaning up life’s messes and my only real talent is that I just don’t quit. I’m excited to share my unique perspective with you here at mehawkins.com and hope you’ll enjoy what I have to share. 
A little about the blog.
I started this blog with no clue what I was doing. NONE. It was going in a million different directions and so was I. After several months of writing and a whole lot of trial and error, I  found what works and decided to stick with what I know and love: books and reading. So welcome to my badass little book blog!
I’ll be sharing book reviews, reading challenges, upcoming new releases, book events, and any and everything book-related I think my readers would love. I’m also going to provide blogging insights and resources in my No-Bullsh!t Blog Tips.
You’ll also find links to my Etsy shop, Badass by Design, where you can shop a variety of downloadable digital art prints featuring some of my favorite motivational and book quotes. I love having my favorite words displayed where I can see them when I need a little extra badassery in my life!
You can also connect with me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest.
