I’m Ali (she/her), a Chicana (Mexican American) 24-year-old Southern California native currently living in Las Vegas. Ever since I was 12, I’ve been into coding websites and blogging. I stopped creating internet things during college and now that I have more time on my hands and a renewed obsession with reading anything I can get my hands on, I decided to start blogging about books.
I like reading from any genre, writing, sewing, Animal Crossing, going to concerts (pre-COVID), using too many parentheses, driving ’round until I get lost and finding my way back…
In the Lost and Found will feature posts on what I’ve been reading, what I’m up to in life, my favorite things, and more. I look forward to figuring it out along the way!
