Talking is hard, so instead I write.

Welcome to my blog. I am Erin (short for Catherine, call me either) and my life is a confusion of books, tea, school and travel. Here is where I review the books, spill the tea and document the travel.

When my head is not stuck in a book, you will find me bullet journalling, practising my cello or travelling. I am heavily influenced by the adventures of my life and am always seeking new ones!

I started this blog because I am an introvert and a creative. Blogging is a good way to channel my thoughts without speaking to people. Speaking can cause a lot of misunderstanding. For me in particular, I tend to get words wrong or be silent in the wrong places. I’m not even going to try and cure my awkwardness because I love to be quiet. Through various social media platforms, I promote positive messages that mean a lot to me, and share my love for literature.

Thank you for stopping by. I will always be writing for those of you that stay!

  1. Hi. Cath-erin. 🙂 ‘Found you commenting on another Brit’s blog and decided to take a peak. I have only scratched the surface; but I am a sucker for bookworms (as my Chat Café space will show) and mildly intrigued. I am a terrible reader, myself…more of a creator/artist, currently writing and developing some of my own would-be books.

    So, why the name divide? And, what…who…why? is Kitty Jade? I would guess a combination of a cat lover and a precious stone you favor. But, I am curious about the origin story. Could Kitty Jade be your Jane Eyre? 😛 Or, your Tom Sawyer?

    • Hello. Reading would definitely help you with your writings, if you could find time! Kitty Jade is a name I’ve loved since I was very young. I would hate to use my name as a title for this blog: so I guess that what you’re saying is right – it’s my alter-ego. Kitty Jade is the person I am when I’m writing and it suddenly makes me feel more confident 🙃 Thank you for your interesting questions and I hope to see you on my blog again!


      • I find reading helps a little, but, it’s hard for me to take time to read when I want and need to get so much else done. As a very creative person starved for activity, making time for reading is like leaving a car parked in the garage. If I’m not writing/creating, reading instead, I am losing creation time. But, I have been doing more reading in recent years, for calming purposes, mostly.

  3. I’m pretty pleased to discover this web site. I want to to thank you for your time for this wonderful read!! I definitely liked every part of it and I have you saved as a favorite to check out new things on your blog.


  4. Hi, Kitty Jade! Hope you’ve been doing well lately. I was just noticing that whenever you post the ‘Like’ button and the ‘Comment’ button are always disabled so nobody can like or comment on your posts. I was just wondering if you knew that because it seems like in some of your posts you’ll ask people questions or say ‘Let me know in the comments.’ Anyway, just wanted to let you know in case you didn’t! 🙂

    Have a wonderful rest of your week!
