Who am I?
Just a 20-something Wisconsin girl who reads way more than is probably healthy.
Why am I qualified to tell anyone what books are good and which are terrible?
I probably am not qualified, and anyone who says he/she is qualified is a liar. But I can tell you that I dedicate a large portion of my time to reading, and that has made me very critical. I don’t read a book that doesn’t hold distinct value to me. I also have a deep amount of respect for writing as a craft, and so place a lot of weight in how well a book is written.
What kinds of books do I review?
I’m curious about the world, so I read a good deal of non-fiction, mostly history, science, and politics. However, the majority of what I read is literary fiction (not to be confused with women’s fiction). You won’t find here reviews of Twilight or anything with Fabio on the cover. I also frequently receive advance review copies from publishers, so that my readers may be the first to see reviews of upcoming books.
