About Me


Greetings and welcome to my blog. I’m Leticia Chand, a native New Yorker, who lived in California for 20 years. I have a day job and a passion for books and reading. I’ve been an avid reader since childhood and books have had a major impact on my life. I believe that the right book at the right time can change your life.

Book Reviews Lite is my creative outlet and vehicle for sharing my experiences in the reading life. I occasionally read fiction, but my primary interest is non-fiction, especially personal development, spirituality, health, memoir and entrepreneurship. I always have a long list of books I want to read and am usually reading more than one at a time. As is the case with many people who regularly read, there are many, many books to be read and never enough time.

“I lived within the covers of books and those books were more real to me than any other thing in my life.”
Anna Quindlen

I love living in New York City because it provides (among many other things) a rich literary environment for me to explore. Therefore, one of my weekly posts might be about a book or author event, an indie bookstore or book-related news.

I’d like to introduce you to the concept that books can serve as tools for personal transformation. My intention is that you’ll read a review that resonates for you in a special way and prompts you to read and experience the book for yourself. I welcome your thoughts, comments and reading suggestions.

The books I read have been bought by me or borrowed from the New York Public Library.
