About

me in BostonHi!  I’m a thirtysomething Midwesterner with a great library nearby.  My love of reading started early when my dad would read me Little Golden Books Billy Goats Gruff and The Hungry Hippo.  The love affair continued as I always read all the books assigned in high school and college.  Since graduating, I have been a member of several book clubs; but I wanted yet another outlet to discuss bestsellers, out-of-prints, travel memoirs, or whatever else I happen to pick up!  To help you decide whether you can trust my opinion on books, here are my thoughts on some:

Jane Austen is my favorite author because her satire is funny and her characters are memorable.  I couldn’t finish The Corrections.  YA series are a huge chunk of what I read: Chaos Walking, Twilight, Harry Potter, Animorphs, which yes I consider YA because the stuff Cassie dealt with was heavy, Graceling, Hunger Games.  The worst book I have ever finished was maybe A Clockwork Orange.  I guess clever phrases and terribly graphic violence don’t do it for me.

Fitfully, I will post a new book review on this site.  A majority of the books will be fiction, but I do read nonfiction as well.  I will also be taking requests; if you want me to review a book submit it on the Request-a-Review page.  I won’t guarantee I’ll read it, but I might put it on the pile.

    Fitfully as in fits of rage, spasms, cussing?

    • My favorite Animorphs book is the one where Cassie morphs into a butterfly on the cover and she met that sympathetic Yeerk.

      And I suppose it goes without saying that when I say “my favorite Animorphs book” I mean my favorite behind any and all Tobias books, which were the best of the series!
