    August 31, 2023 2 min read

    “Kindness is always the answer!”

           Tracey, a book influencer better known as @tbh_reads (Instagram and Tiktok), said these words. Tracey is a passionate reader, a mom, and a kind-hearted influencer who shares her love for books and life on social media. In this article, we are going to take a look at Tracey’s life-changing moments, her journey as an influencer, and her advice for readers and followers.

           Tracey’s love for reading started at an early age. She used to stay up late under the covers with a book light, getting lost in different worlds. However, life got busy, and her reading habits were put aside until she faced postpartum depression after the birth of her son. She turned to reading again and found solace in Abby Jimenez’s books, which helped her with depression and anxiety. It was then that Tracey realized the power of books, of discovering oneself through reading, and how it helped her feel happier and lighter.

           Tracey’s life changed again when her son was born at the beginning of COVID. Becoming a first-time mom during a pandemic was challenging, but Tracey and her husband emerged stronger as a family. She learned that being a mom required more than she had imagined and that taking care of oneself was essential.

           As Tracey’s love for books deepened, she started sharing her passion with others on social media. As an influencer, she aims to inspire others to read and share her love for happy endings and romance. However, like any influencer, Tracey has faced criticism and negativity. Still, she chooses to focus on positive experiences and surrounds herself with genuine friends online.



           Tracey is an influencer who has used her platform to spread positivity and love amidst difficult times. Her journey through motherhood and postpartum depression is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit, and her love for reading is a reminder of the beauty that can be found in the pages of a book. We can all learn something from Tracey’s example: to be kind, to take care of ourselves, and never stop exploring the things that make us happy.

           If you ever find yourself on a soul-searching adventure, Tracey suggests bringing Love and Other Words with you. Tracey has found solace in books and hopes you can, too.
