Special Guest Saturday: Meet Tori!

View her Bookstagram

Tori Gordon is a stay-at-home mom turned bookstagrammer. By combining her love of reading, her love of animals, and her knack for creativity, her t-shirt shop Book Chick T-shirts was born. Currently she has over 3,500 Instagram followers. While not reading and writing book reviews, Tori cares for her family of nine, designs t-shirts for her shop, volunteers at her library, cares for her 21 chickens, a pot-bellied pig named Rosemary, and her dog Percy. She has also been known to wrangle a few snakes here and there.

Q: When did you open your shop?

A: I opened November 2018.

Q: Why did you choose apparel?

A: I've always had a "thing" for t-shirts. I always buy a concert tee if I go to a show. I buy tees on vacation. I had some other bookish and fun tees, so it just made sense.

Q: How did the name of your shop come about?

A: I knew I wanted to incorporate my 2 hobbies-books and chickens. It took just a few minutes to decide a name. Book Chick T-shirts just kind of came naturally. 

Q: What would be your favorite shirt design to date?

A: Ooh that's a hard one. I really like my Chicks Love Books tee. It's one of the "Classic 4" designs I started with, but I also like the Read, Return, Repeat tee. I don't know!! I really like them all.

Q: On the book front, what's been your favorite book of 2020?

A: Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson, It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover, and Lakeshire Park by Megan Walker have been my top five star reads this year.

Q: What's your most anticipated book of this year?

A: I'm excited for Nadine Millard's "Protecting the Princess." It's the second book in the Royals of Aldonia series. Millard's books are always a fun escape; it comes out soon!

Q: If you had to recommend one book to someone, what would it be?

A: I recommend Calling Me Home by Julie Kibler. The first time I read it, I could not stop thinking about it for days. It was emotionally draining, but so so good.
