Hello out there, fellow book lovers. You may have noticed my name and face on the sidebar here at Ravenous For Reads, and you may have been wondering who I am. So I thought I would take a quick moment to introduce myself and tell you a bit about my reading habits.
I moved to the Seattle area from Arizona in 2016. I work in social media. I have two corgis, two cats, and one awesome partner. And I read a lot. A lot a lot a lot. Although I love physical books, the realities of cross-country moves and apartment living means that I mostly read digital these days. I still really enjoy visiting actual bookstores though, and buying physical copies of especially interesting books. I’m exited to be joining Ravenous for Reads as a guest blogger so I can share my love of reading with more people.
What I’m Currently Reading
At any given time I usually have one fiction novel and one non-fiction book that I’m reading my way through, and sometimes an anthology on the side. My current fiction read is The Devourers by Indra Das, and my current non-fiction is A People’s History of the United States by Howard Zinn.
The Best Book I’ve Read This Year
I’ve read a lot of great books in 2017, but N. K. Jemisin’s The Stone Sky just blew me away. I’ve rarely read such a satisfying conclusion to a trilogy.
The Worst Book I’ve Read This Year
Definitely Trailer Park Fae by Lilith Saintcrow. I couldn’t even finish it, and I finish almost every book I start.
The Book I’m Most Excited To Read in 2018
The Girl in the Tower, by Katherine Arden. The first book in this series took a bit to find its footing, but now I am really eager to find out what happens next.
My Embarrassing Reading Habit
I like to take books with me if I go out to eat alone. Unfortunately I have a bad habit of doing this when I’m just finishing a book, which means I’m reading the most emotional parts while out in public… and I start crying like a baby! I always want to tell the people around me “It’s fine! This is just a really good book!” but I worry that might make it even more awkward.
And that’s basically me in a nutshell! I’ll be posting here every Wednesday, so please come back next week for a review of The Devourers.
