Hello, my name is Kim Sasaki ❤ – a writer by day and book addict always. I enjoy reading mystery thrillers, true crime, and on occasion, horror. I also love reading fantasy and middle-grade fiction.

In 2019, it is my goal to rediscover the classics and to catch up with what I’ve been missing my whole life. Read With Kim is where I write about my literary adventures and my thoughts on the book I’m currently reading (Warning: I can be brutal about books I don’t like) 

Through my blog, I hope to meet some new friends who are on the same journey. And while I’m probably not the most sociable person you’d meet, you’ll find that I’m a bit chatty when talking about books. Send me a message and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
