Why did I start this blog: I created this blog to keep all of my book reviews in one place. I also post my reviews on Amazon.com, and LibraryThing.com.
Who am I: I’m a 24 year old college student from New Jersey. I currently attend Rutgers University, and I am Majoring in English, and Minoring in Writing. And of course, I love to read. I’ve run out of bookshelves and have started piling books anywhere I can find room. I’m always buying new books on Amazon.com, or at used book sales.
What do I read: I read anything I can get my hands on. I love historical fiction, and go through phases where I read as many books as I can about a particular figure or time period in history. I’m currently obsessed with Alexander the Great. In the past I’ve also enjoyed historical fiction about Marie Antoinette and Henry VIII. Some of my favorite historical fiction authors include P.C. Doherty, Ann Rinaldi, and Philippa Gregory. I also enjoy supernatural fiction about magic, vampires, werewolves, witches, etc. Some of my favorite authors include Patricia Briggs, Charlaine Harris, and (sometimes) Laurell K. Hamilton. As for chick lit, I don’t read very much of it, but I do enjoy books by Meg Cabot. The majority of my books are classics though: Alcott, Austen, Dickens, Dumas… etc, books that can be read over and over again! I don’t read very much nonfiction, however I do like to read biographies and autobiographies (mostly about the aforementioned historical figures, but also those by political figures and sometimes movie stars), plays (Shakespeare), poetry, and books about certain civilizations/periods in history.
I hope you enjoy my blog! Feel free to contact me if you have a book you’d like me to review. I’m currently swamped, and have a large pile I still need to review, but if your book sounds particularly amazing I could make an exception.
