In books I have found comfort for a lonely night, prose that makes the heart aflutter, characters to learn from and laugh with, stories that touch and amaze, and insights to be thoughts about for days on end.
I love books, and I tend to have lots of opinions after reading books. This blog is just a way for me to say what I want to say, give the books I love the recognition they deserve and the books I don’t some brutal honesty.
I love picking out books for myself, but I also love looking at reviews and doing ‘research’ on whether I should get a book. Hopefully my reviews will be able to assist others as well in their adventures of book reading!
Favorite genre of books:
- Historical fiction
- Historical mystery fiction.
I generally read any book as long as it suits my tastes. Some of my favorite books consist of children books, tween books, chick-lit, fantasy, horror, sci-fi, philosophy, biographies, classics, self-help, etc, etc.
As long as a book catches my eye, I’ll give it a shot. I’m extremely nit-picky when it comes to chick-lit/romance though. I’m a very fussy hopeless romantic.
Prose is one thing I love in a book. If a book has no fancy prose, that’s fine. I’m no hoity-toity book critic. Still, lovely prose makes for heartfelt sighs from me.
I will be taking quotes from books; sometimes language is just so beautiful and there’s nothing better than reading a mellifluously meaningful string of words.
