Hi there, friend, and welcome to The Novel Endeavor! I’m Lori, the book nerd behind this wonderfully amazing space where I write about books, motherhood, and adoption. I have been married for ten years to my handsome and supportive husband, Chris, without whom this blog would not be in existence! We also have a beautiful daughter, Aliana, who we adopted at the end of 2014. If you would like to know more about me and get a bit more behind the scenes, check out the About Me page.
The Novel Endeavor is meant to be a place where I catalog my journeys through…
- And, the occasional other tangents that just seem to “happen.”
In particular, I am on a mission to diversify my reading life through diverse literature and Pulitzer Prize winners. Learning from those that are different than me has greatly impacted my day-to-day life; through reading, my compassion, empathy, and understanding of others influences my words, actions, and behaviors.
