Relax, there's tea.

A Papered Sanctuary is a refuge for my fellow bibliophiles to find honest reviews and testimonies about books and book related companies, products and services.

I am a mother, wife, book critic, history enthusiast and journalist. Reviewing books is my favorite way to productively express my opinions, while helping others find their next favorite story. A Papered Sanctuary features thoughtful reviews, book clubs and the articles from my adventures to bookstores, events and historical sites in my region.

A refuge for kindred spirits and those who seek sanctuary in the pages of a book.

Respect is crucial when critiquing another’s work.  No review nor comment will be made swiftly or with malice. My purpose is to spread the word about books, places, authors and companies I find interesting, all while offering constructive criticism.
