It begins!

 

I've halfheartedly dabbled in the blog world before but this time I'm sticking with it! I never had a clear vision before of what I wanted to share and this time it's based on my longest love - books. Plus, it became hard to fit everything I want to say in the Instagram reviews that I was doing. Books and reading and writing are truly the most important things in the world to me (aside from my family and friends, of course). Reading is an escape from the real world where you can experience any emotion, visit any place, and go on any adventure...and there's the added bonus that it makes you smarter. 

When I review books, I will try to avoid major (and minor) spoilers as much as possible but it's inevitable so I'll be sure to give spoiler warnings. 

I hope you'll enjoy what I have to say. Even if you despise a book I love, or I trash something that's near and dear to your heart, tell me. Different perspectives and open discussions are so important in this world of extremes. Literature may not be as polarizing as politics or religion but it's still incredibly important. It would be my honor to help you discover a new favorite book with my reviews, or help inspire you to find more time for reading, or to make you pick up a book for the first time in years. 

As one of my favorite authors said, "A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one." (George R.R. Martin, ADwD) My life has been made immeasurably richer by the characters I've known and loved. 

Enjoy!
