About the Blog
Pastel Goth is a book & media blog that I began June 2019 where I share reviews and other miscellaneous musings about the books that I read. My tastes are kind of eclectic and I cover a wide range of books in different genres. This project is a revival of a previous book blog I ran from 2014 to 2018. I’ve since reorganized the website, made a better schedule for myself, and rewritten a few of the reviews.
I love both ebooks and physical books for different reasons, though my most preferred format is hardcovers. In the case of ereaders I have a Kindle PaperWhite.
