Weekend Reader is a bookish content creator. Her content can be found on the Weekend Reader blog or social media accounts.

Find Lynell:  


Ari is a twenty-something-year-old NYC bibliophile and a forever daydreamer. You can usually find her with her nose buried in a book and her head up in the clouds. Ari fell in love with the romance genre a few years ago and hasn't been able to stop reading about happily-ever-afters since—which is ironic because she's a bit of a cynical romantic in real life, haha. Ari's favorite subgenres include contemporary, erotica, and dark romances.
