Let’s Talk Books: Mariah Coffelt

Hi! I’m a flight attendant who travels all around the world but somehow always ends up at a bookstore. I’ve been an avid reader since I was a kid and lately I’ve been really enjoying blending my love of travel and reading on my Instagram account. I’m 28 and I have a husband and two cats. I never wanted cats but 9 years ago I ended up with Zeke and somehow I’ve turned into a crazy cat lady! So my page is a reflection of my three loves: books, travel, and cats.

Which was the first book you really loved? Harry Potter

What/Who got you into reading? I don’t think there was a specific person, I just always remember having a book in my hand. When I would get in trouble as a kid/teenager, my mom would ground me by taking my books away. That was the worst punishment I could imagine!

What’s your favorite genre? Why? Multi generational family sagas

Why do you love reading? I love reading because it can be anything you need in the moment you need it. It can be an escape, it can be a way to learn, it can open your eyes to different cultures and experience, and it can be a form of self care.
