Hi, I’m Autumn, but my friends and family call me Malliumpkin! I have an obsession with books. Whether they’re signed, a special edition, an exclusive, or a book that shows a little love; nothing is better than curling up with a cup of coffee or tea to read. I play way too much OverWatch and Mass Effect. I’m constantly thinking of fun new adventures. And I think love is the most powerful force in the world that many people should use more often. And if this indicates anything, I’m terrible at talking about myself.
First off, you among many others are probably wondering “why the name Malliumpkin?” Well, here’s the short version of this tale: my gaming and just my in general features. The long version, well, you asked for it. The long side of this tale is when I first started LARPing, a lot of members referred to me as being “too short” to play an elf, but eventually one girl ended up calling me “Malliumpkin”. For those of you who don’t know who Malliumpkin is, Malliumpkin is the door mouse from Alice in Wonderland. It just ended up sticking and here we are eleven years later! Plus, I think it suits me and it beats all the seasonal jokes!
I think I’ve been in love with reading my whole life. As a child I was very sick and never got to play with other children often because of being too sick. So I spent a lot of times hidden away in the nooks of my school library devouring book after book. Even growing up, if I wanted books I had to work really hard. I was taught books were a privilege not a right. So I saved every penny for my school book fairs and Scholastic book orders. Now that I’m older, I still love books and even more so with reviewing them. I even have the gracious opportunity to be working for a bookstore, but that’s for another time. I don’t consider this a job, this is a passionate fire that has lived within me for years of my being and it’s an amazing hobby that I can call my own.
I have wanted to make a book blog for so long, but never thought it would become a reality. I’m so blessed to have amazing friends from the book community encourage me and show me support as well as having an amazing spouse who loves and supports me to the fullest. All these amazing people have made me decide 2019 is going to be my year!
I shall be posting reviews on GoodReads, Instagram, and this blog!
