Hi, there, I’m Alex and I’m a writer from the sunshine state. I love books, talking about books, buying books, basically anything related to books sounds like a fun time to me.

Obsessing over books on my own wasn’t enough, I needed an online community. Thus, BOOKS IRL was created.

BOOKSIRL is black-owned used bookstore and independent editorial blog dedicated to diverse Young Adult, New Adult, and Romance books. BOOKSIRL is committed to highlighting and celebrating various diverse characters, stories, and authors.

The bookstore offers quality new and used books comprised of former library books, personal libraries, and more. The blog features book reviews, essays, book recommendations, and so much more.

My Services


Most of the books I read are Young Adult, New Adult, and Romance books. I read books with sub-genres, such as, Mysteries, Thrillers, or written in Contemporary form.
