Hello, my name is Megan Gardner.

A few years ago, I started Books and Polka Dots on Instagram as a way to share my love of books and reading. I decided it was time to expand my reviews to reach more people in our beloved book community.

I live in Connecticut with my husband, three cats and my library. There is no room more special than my library. My favorite genres are historical fiction, literary fiction and historical based non-fiction. However, I have been known to pick up just about every genre if the synopsis intrigues me enough.

I not only read books - I collect them. I have more vintage books than I know what to do with and enough children's books to fill an elementary school library. 

I hope this blog inspires you pick up a new read that you wouldn't have chosen otherwise. Feel free to leave a comment or follow me on social media!
