About Me

Hello! I’m Tosin (pronounced ‘Toe-Sin’). I’m a medical doctor and an avid reader. I’ve always loved reading and sharing my thoughts even when no one asked. As an introverted teenager, I found peace in blogging about life in general. After multiple deleted blogs, I started a lifestyle blog with my sister but it almost slowly turned into a book blog which wasn’t the intention and I had to create a space where I could write about the books I read with no restrictions.

The name ‘Booksxnaps’ actually means Books and Naps. I grew up taking naps daily, and It became part of me. It’s a bit sad that in the last couple of years, I have not been able to take naps.

I’m a mood reader and some of my favourite authors are Emily Henry, Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi, Chimeka Garricks, Ayobami Adebayo, Beth O’Leary, Wayetu Moore, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Sefi Atta.

I recently moved to Canada and while I navigate this new environment/life, I make sure to find the time to do the things I enjoy like spending time with my family and friends & finding cute bookstores. My idea of a relaxing day is drinking a cup of hot chocolate in bed while reading a good book or rewatching Grey’s Anatomy.
