About

raccoon final

Let’s just sum it up to the fact that I love books. I’m not talking about a few good books here and there or a good leisure activity, I’m talking about a lifestyle. I am anything but relaxed when I read. Occasionally (all the time) people will catch me squealing in delight, crying (yes, crying), furious, swooning, running into a pole as I read while walking, etc.

If you want to read an honest, well-thought out review, you’re at the right place. Reading a great book is a great thing. Wasting money and reading a…not so great book is, well, not so great. I love young adult literature. I love being whisked away into a different world, a different time, a different community, you name it. I love to see characters grow and change and fall in love. I also love authors that make you think, that make you ask life’s big questions.

Favorite authors…where do I begin?

Veronica Roth, Cassandra Clare, Richelle Mead, Julie Kagawa, Lauren Oliver, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Zora Neale Hurston, J.K. Rowling, John Donne, Shakespeare, Khaleed Hosseini, Lois Lowry

Those are in no particular order and not even close to complete.

I have two cats, named Sneakers and Vanilla, also known as Skinny and Fat, who believe that I am their pet. It’s probably true. I am a full time college student whose motto is “sleep is for the weak and the non-reader,” a sinner saved by grace, and a caffeine junkie. I spend enough time in my local coffee shop that they start making my drink when I walk in.

I appreciate each and every comment, follow, like and cyber high five. If it weren’t for all of you, I would be talking to myself. Which I tend to do sometimes anyway, but you get the point.

    Awesome! Sneakers is such a cute name for a cat! 🙂
    Have you ever read either The Fountainhead, or Atlas Shrugged? I highly recommend both, if you haven’t. They’re powerful literature.

      Thanks. 🙂 Her original name was Sneaky, but Sneakers kind of took over within weeks. She’s been with us for about ten years. I haven’t read either, but I’ve read Anthem by Ayn Rand and love it! Those have been on my “to read” list though…

    I tried to read the Casual Vacancy, but was turned off within the first 150 pages. The book really seemed depressing to the point of dread, not to mention all the swearing. I was expecting better from Rowling.

    Rowling! Yes!

    Have you read her latest book? I was a massive Harry Potter Nut back in the day, but I haven’t yet got around to reading The Casual Vacancy.

      I have not read The Casual Vacancy. Frankly, I received way too many mixed reviews and as I am still a huge Potter nut, I honestly do not want to possibly mar my perception of Rowling’s flawless writing. Call me crazy and delusional, but Harry Potter was my entire childhood
