The Basic Booktrovert

Hi there, I’m Amity and I’m a margarita-mixing, kitten-rescuing, plant-hoarding, coffee-obsessed, homeschooling basic booktrovert who is here to help readers find their new BFFs (best fictional friends) and discover their favorite fiction genres.

BOOK LOVER, I am so glad you’re here! You may ask yourself, “What is a booktrovert, anyway?” Well, you have landed in just the spot to be enlightened! A booktrovert enjoys spending time with their BFFs —best fictional friends— more than their real-life BFFs. Nowwww, don’t get me wrong, we still love our girlfriends, but our favorite book characters have that little something extra that we can only find within the pages of a good book. You’ve heard of a book hangover? Yep, those happen a lot around here, all thanks to our Best Fictional Friends.


The concept of The Basic Booktrovert began at the beginning of 2023 with the 100 books in 365 days challenge. The blog I was running slowly morphed into a book blog, and I never looked back.


Though books are a passion of mine, my first love is my family. My three children and husband are the sunshine on my cloudy days, and I am so grateful for them. I have rescued a few too many cats in my lifetime and recently accepted that I own more plants than any human should ever acquire. I drink coffee all day, and I make a mean margarita come night. My reading forte is fiction, and I can’t say no to descriptive and well-developed characters and unpredictable plot twists.


I’m so glad you’re here, and whether you are an avid reader or need a little help figuring out where to begin or what you may like, you’re here among friends… FICTIONAL FRIENDS THAT IS!! I am thrilled to show you the beauty of being a basic booktrovert.
