About Me

Kate and Jim at Bernie Rally

Hi! My name is Kate Unger.

I read A LOT. My husband and son would say “too much.” I can’t help it. I have always loved books. In addition to reading, I also enjoy watching movies, helping out with school activities & sports for my son, trying new recipes, and spending time with family – immediate and extended – and friends.

I started my first blog, Mom’s Radius, in May 2015. When I attended BEA 2016, I realized that if I wanted to market myself as a book blogger, I ought to have a bookish blog name. I started working on this blog in June 2016, and I finally launched it in August 2016.

Kate Unger and son Christopher UngerOn this blog, I review adult and young adult books (fiction mostly) and discuss other literary sentiments. I originally started blogging, so I would have an outlet to talk about books and meet other book lovers. I have 3 book clubs IRL, but they don’t even come close to satisfying my love of books. Some of my favorite books are Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling, The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer, Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty, The Future of Us by Jay Asher, The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger, and Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.

I still blog at Mom’s Radius, where I write about my family, recipes, children’s books, middle grade books, and anything else within my radius of interests as a mom.

I also write the book review column in Country Woman magazine. I recommend 3 books per issue, 6 issues per year. I usually try to organize the recommendations around a theme, and they’re books I have not already reviewed on this blog.
