About

 

Dear Reader,

In the midst of all the book blogs out there, you’ve come across my little corner of that universe. Like many, I’m an avid reader and have loved books for as long as I can remember.

While I enjoy reading just for the sake of it, I’m always looking for life-changing reads.

My focus is literary fiction and classics, but I also love Sci-fi, fantasy, and magical realism. I also appreciate books that are both timely and universal, with messages that pack a punch.

I have a love/hate relationship with YA. I’m not a big fan of the major multi-book fantasy franchises in YA. Well… unless it’s An Ember in the Ashes, that is one series I’m really digging right now. I tend to stick to Contemporary YA now, though I keep giving fantasy YA a try. One day I’ll learn.

If you want an idea of my taste in books I would point you to:

Sooo, how do movies fit in… ?

I had recently planned to split the website between books and movies, my two loves after family, but quickly realized that one of them has to be the at the forefront. That said, I plan on incorporating movies in two ways:

  1. Book-to-Movie Adaptations: Compare both works with each other, but give them equal time. I’m not of the camp that says ‘the book is always better than the movie’. Books and movies are two completely different medias, and while sometimes there’s a clear-cut winner, most of time they are both equally good, just different.
  2. Highlight one movie a month in the theaters: This probably won’t be a popcorn film, but something deep that I can dive into. I’m not hating on big-budget popcorn movies, but there’s only so much one can say, especially with how many movie reviewers are out there.

For the present, I’m just trying to figure out a consistent schedule and the books I want to focus on going forward.

I hope you pull up a chair, stick around, and join me on my search to find meaningful stories wrapped in beautiful covers.

Best Wishes and Happy Readings!

  1. This resonates so much – I started because I wanted a place of my own to archive my reviews (which I’d scattered around different platforms over the previous few years), but I’ve always mostly written my reviews for myself. Then once I had a blog it was so easy to get sucked into social media and schedules – and it isn’t as much fun! So here’s to selfish blogging in 2017 🙂
