Hi there, I am Danessa.


I am a child of God, a wife, a full-time working mum, a bibliophile and a writer for hire. I started this blog to document the stuff that keeps me happy… essentially doing anything that brings a smile to my face. Having my nose stuck in a book, spending time with my lovely husband and 11-year-old daughter, exploring cities and soaking in the nature – these are some of the things I really enjoy and they fill up my love tank.

If you love book reviews and reading about the ups and downs of life of an extrovert, you’ll feel right at home here. I love books across various genres and I read them in paperbacks, hard covers, and on the Kindle too. I have been actively participating in Christian book launches. I’ve done reviews for wonderful people like Karen Ehman, Sally Clarkson and Ann Voskamp; to name a few.


I believe that life is already hard and there are so many things that are out of our control. Life may give you cactus, ouch! But you can choose not to sit on it. Instead of giving up or giving in, why not give all that you’ve got right? I hope the stories that I share uplifts your day as you journey life with me, and gives you the courage to just live simply and joyfully. Cheers!
