In 2015, San Antonio native Megan Padalecki took the literary world by storm with her debut children’s book, Big Mo. Since that time, it has been a thrilling ride for the former architect now author.

@BigMoBook @NikkiL_Books Celebrate #NationalReadABookDay via @tdmiller820917

Today is National Read A Book Day! Since I’m an unapologetic book lover and passionate book reviewer, this is my kind of celebration! I would make it a legal holiday, if I could, just like my birthday is a legal holiday. Well, my birthday is July 4th and it was a legal holiday before I was born, but I digress. My point is…I LOVE books. I can constantly be found on social media posting the numerous book reviews that I’ve written. I’ve written 60 book reviews so far in 2016. In addition, since I am now a published author myself, my love for books has taken on a new and even more appreciative dynamic. I’m extremely proud to belong to the published authors club.
