The Spine Down

Hi you guys, my name is Maya and welcome to The Spine Down!


The Spine Down is that moment when you’re winding down from the day, you are in your most comfy state and you are getting lost in a book! My goal is to have more spine down moments and I personally love to make a whole mood out of it: a nice drink, a cozy blanket, maybe a nice scented candle….


The Spine Down was inspired by my personal goal of not only just reading more, but to retain and reflect on what I read. So I thought what better way to do that than through a book blog?!
