about the blog
Reverie Pages was created out of my love for beautiful things and books alike. it will probably be mostly book posts. that’s not for sure though. i’m still figuring things out 🙂 in the end, there will probably be some of everything on this blog: music, travel, life – just a good mix. i like to change things up every so often, so don’t get too comfortable…
Reverie Pages began in october of 2016 when i found that i was DES.PER.ATE. to talk to someone about the books i read and loved. i loved talking about books (and myself + my life), and so my obsession with and commitment to this blog began. my original blog was actually called A Chic Bookworm, changed in early 2017 to A Paper Reverie. AND NOW (in its final glorious, self-hosted form), my blog is (obviously) called Reverie Pages, named after the joy i find in being immersed in a book. the name of my blog is also a slight tip of the hat to one of my favorite books of all time, The Night Circus (otherwise known as le Cirque de Reves).
helloooo, i’m madeline, as i already mentioned.
a former gymnast turned runner, i do cross country and track, and i love almost every minute of it. the best feeling is finishing a hard run. working out in general is one of my favorite things. fun fact: i am a suuuper short human bean (i am just under five feet tall)! i guess being short has helped me though with my gymnastics?? but pleassseeeeee just let me grow a little more !!
