Hi! As promises way back when, there are two of us contributing to the blog…or rather one who contributes regularly, and one who regularly forgets. The latter would be me, but you can call me Asteria!
I have been reading for as long as I can remember. My mom was a huge influence with that. She could always be counted on to have a good book in tow, and well…monkey see monkey do! Books allowed me to go on countless adventures, adventures that took me away from the realities of life going on around me. They were my coping mechanism, my way of escaping, a method I still use today.
I am not overly hard on books. If I can make it till the end and not give up, it can’t be terrible. I am, however, a believer that there is no such thing as a bad book, just one that hasn’t spoken to you yet. I didn’t read Harry Potter until years after it was released cause I thought it was a silly kids book. but I read it at the right time for me, and it has resonated in me ever since.
I read just about anything. I love crime novels, the likes of John Sandford, Kathy Reichs, and Patricia Cornwell. As stated, I’m a huge Harry Potter fan. I have read a lot of teen novels as well, such as Kelley Armstrong, Veronica Roth, Cassandra Clare, and the like. I can read true crime, paranormal, biography, mystery, anything really that seems kinda interesting. I do, however tend to shy away from the sci-if and fantasy genres…I will leave that to Artemis!
So what kind of reviews to expect from me? Well…hard to say! I like to read somewhat mainstream, and see what the fuss is about, and I like book to movie adaptations. But every now and then I will come out with an unusual read, something a little less known. Hopefully you will find a reviewed book here that captures your interest and takes you on your own adventure!
