I've decided to start this blog because I am an avid reader and aspiring writer. To put it plainly, I love books. Novels are my drug of choice when it comes to reading. However, lately I have been dipping my toes in what are the foreign waters of poetry. Although shorter in length, I have found that poetry is extremely complex when compared to novels, as one stanza can have a million meanings. Being an English Lit. major has really broadened my knowledge of just how much literature there is out there and just how much I have yet to read (and fall in love with). To give you a sense of what it is that I read, my favourite authors range from Jane Austen to Judy Blume, i.e. I have no preference when it comes to style or time period. Other authors that I love are J.K. Rowling (who doesn't love the adventurous novels of Harry Potter?), George Orwell, Khaled Hosseini, Charlotte Bronte and so many more. Because I spend a lot of my time reading, I have decided to create this blog in order to offer my personal opinions and comments with respect to the books I have read and the ones I plan on reading.
