“To read would be an awfully big adventure.” – Peter Pan…..kind of.
What is the point of reading a book if you have no one to talk about it with? Sure, you could argue that the point of reading is to escape to new worlds, to go on an adventure, or “find yourself,” which is cool and definitely important. But talking about books, wanting to shout from the rooftops that you read the most amazing book and you want others to read it too and then they end up telling someone else to read it, that is what reading is all about. It is also what this blog is about! Every week I will be sharing with you my thoughts and feelings on various books found in Young Adult and New Adult literature, or YA/NA lit for short, and start a conversation. Whether you’re reading a review because you’ve loved (or hated, I’m not judging!) a book or you’re trying to decide what to read next, I hope that my words can help point you in the right direction.
BUT ENOUGH ABOUT THE BLOG, WHAT ABOUT ME?
Hey there, my name is Heather! I’m 23 years old and I live in a city just outside of Toronto, Canada. I’m fresh out of university with a Bachelors of Arts degree in History. Wow, a history major plus an avid bookworm? Yep, I’m definitely a nerd. I’d also consider myself to be a Disney enthusiast and an elf enthusiast (I mean have you seen Legolas? Exactly.) and I am a proud Slytherin. I am also a suffering fan of the Toronto Blue Jays and sometimes I can go on endless tangents about how this team makes me feel. I love coffee and tea equally but milk is my one true love.
