Hi There!

A note: I am no longer writing on Ciao Bella. Please feel free to browse the archives, and if you’d like to get in touch, please don’t hesitate to write an email. xx

Hello hello! My name is Bella. Thank you so much for reading — I’m so honored you’ve stopped by.

Here’s a small list of facts, to get us started.
Born and live in Massachusetts — study literacy and the performing arts — love theatre, probably too much for my own good — collector of fine pencils — advocate for libraries, parks, and other public spaces — will stop for colorful typography and freshly baked cookies — holiday music enthusiast — only dance in the company of friends — morning bird — fan of mom jeans, five wears after washing — regularly dreaming of making a home of books and art in England.

Let’s be friends.

  3. Dear Bella, I wanted to drop you an email but couldn’t find a link. Since you’ve mentioned in the past reading The Sisters 8 and that your younger sister read the series too – thank you!!! – I wanted to let you know about a new ebook series I just launched for 8-12-year-olds, the Hat City Middle School Series, the first of which is GUYS AGAINST THE GIRLS: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AHZHOK2

    Thanks for listening and for being such a great reviewer – have a terrific holiday!

  5. I just found your blog and I love it, Bella! I followed you, and I think your blog is very organized, clean, and cheerful! The colors are fun and bright and put a smile to my face! Congratulations on creating such a great blog with such a big following! However, where do you make your graphics?? I think they are the best part of your blog.
