Hello and a very warm welcome to thebookishnerd! My name is Zakiyya, I am 16 years old and my nose is perpetually stuck in a book. Besides that, I enjoy baking, taking pictures and writing. I created thebookishnerd on instagram, a bookstagram, if you will so that I had somewhere to post my many bookish pictures. Bookstagram became (and still is) an incredibly enjoyable hobby of mine. My tiny space of the internet to express my very deeply rooted bibliophilic nature! I decided that it was time to extend thebookishnerd and I took the plunge and created this blog. I think that a blog will give me more creative freedom and allow me the opportunity to write more. I am very excited about it and very thankful that you decided to check it out.
