During a meeting with my friends at a YA book club for adults that I started,  I was gushing about how much I love recommending books to my friends.  Thus, The Bookish Fairy Godmother was born.  Recommending books to people allows me to learn more about their personalities, likes and dislikes, and personal aesthetics.  The process also helps me read more widely, something that is really beneficial to my career as a writer.  While The Bookish Fairy Godmother starts with me, a book nerd who wants to get to know you and recommend books that you'll hopefully love, the mission of this project is to help cultivate connection and empathy.  I hope people will connect with new friends who like the same genres, who are obsessed with the same romance tropes, who wish they could escape into the same fantasy worlds.  If you are a book lover, you already know that reading (especially reading widely across many genres) helps us become more empathetic, understanding, and compassionate people.
