Novels Reading Science Fiction Recent Posts Once More, With Grammar About the Name A (Reading) Adventure Begins RSS Feed RSS - Posts Today I am starting out with something new – something I had intended to do a long time ago, but I am just now getting to: a book review blog. I've been an avid reader since my parents taught me how to read. My interests began with Dr. Seuss and Winnie-the-Pooh, centered around animal stories for some time, progressed to Encyclopedia Brown and any and all mystery novels, changed to romance and historical fiction, then centered on fantasy and science fiction. Now, I read in a wide variety of genres, including non-fiction, classics, historical fiction, and more – but my favorites are still science fiction novels and fairytale retellings. The range of books reviewed on this blog will be as widely ranged as my interest, including both fiction and non-fiction titles. However, the reviews will most likely be heavily weighted toward science fiction and fantasy novels, as those are the kind I am most likely to gravitate toward. I am also participating in several challenges, including the Modern Mrs. Darcy 2016 Reading Challenge, the Goodreads 2016 Reading Challenge, and the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge. I may not complete them all (I'm looking at you Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge!) but these lists will also influence my reading choices and reviews that appear on this blog. I plan to post brief but informative reviews of all the books that I read. These reviews will include my thoughts on aspects such as writing style, technical quality, structure and organization, character organization, and other aspects I find unique or noteworthy, as well as my personal enjoyment of the novels. I hope that you will find my reviews both interesting and informative, and even possibly help you decide whether or not to read a book you were considering, or help you find a new favorite author! And if you have suggestions for books you would like to review here, please let me know. I'd also love to see your comments, whether you've read the books I've reviewed or not! I hope you'll enjoy taking this reading (and blogging) journey with me!

Just ask my family - I've been a writing fiend since I learned as a first grader that I could write stories like those I loved. While I temporarily pursued other careers, in college I returned to writing as Technical and Professional Communication major. I learned how to write logically and clearly while avoiding unnecessary words that detract from the message. I wrote a wide variety of content from reports to user-friendly instructions, learned to adhere to various style guides including MLA and the Chicago Manual, and how to properly and quickly edit writing. As content writer for an online e-commerce company, I composed all content, including product descriptions, social media posts, and especially blog posts. I located relevant topics, or wrote on assigned topics researched and composed posts, and delivered content that rarely even...
