For all those wondering why I just did that, it's from a song, and I do tend to do that quite a bit. I also have a tendency to make movie references at any point where I feel like I can get away with it. I just thought that I would get that out there in the first place. I should probably show you my flaws before I ask you to read any of my posts, right?
Anyway, let's get down to business(to defeat, the Huns). I'm sure that all of you have realized that this is not a book review of any kind, even though that is literally what this blog is about. At the same time, I figure that it's only right if my first post should be about me as a person - just in case you guys think I'm weird, I kind of am, so you've been warned. And, just in case I am actually boring you with this, this post will also inform you of what kinds of books I'm into and what I'll most likely be reviewing in the future.
*claps hands together*
That being said, I'm going to do that last. Just so you guys will stick with me through the rest of this post.
My name is Gwen Pearson; Gwen is, in fact, short for Gwendolyn. I will be turning 20 in September and I live in a small town smack dab in the center of Iowa(it's really boring, in case any of you are curious). Currently I am not going to college, but I do spend a majority of my time working at the HyVee a town over, and, for now, that's what I plan on doing until I have a more stable plan. I love the job, even if it's a bit stressful sometimes.
I still live with my parents, but I also share the house with two cats(one is getting up there in age while the other is only about a year) as well as four ducklings and 10 chicks until they go outside to join their larger brethren.
Now, I do believe that that's enough about me. Let's get to the reason you guys are here - books. This blog is going to be dedicated to books. What kind of books, you ask? Well, that's a tough question. I do have a variety of books resting on my bookshelves, and many different genres. Feel free to expect anything from detective novels to epic fantasy; from supernatural romance to classical.
You might not be asking what age groups these books fall into, but I have to let you know anyway. Just in case there's a random book that I review that is technically considered a book for children. It does not matter to me what age group the book is in; if it sounds good, then I'll probably read it. A lot of my bookshelf space is dedicated to Young Adult novels, but there are a fair amount of adult novels and middle-grade novels alike. There are less children's books on my shelves, but I do have a few.
Admittedly, most of these books I have already read and I do know a few of them by heart. I could probably recite some passages from some of them, but I have decided to re-read books before I review them. Get a fresh approach and all that - besides, I might have missed some things that I pick up as I read it again. But, for a little bit at least, I will settle with reviewing books that are new to me(I have a
I'm going to do my darnedest to get my first official book review posted tomorrow. It will be over The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black, of which I just finished tonight. I'm not posting it tonight because I thought it would be best to get introductions out of the way first and, frankly, I do have to work tomorrow so I should probably get to sleep at some point.
But, if you all must know, the real reason that I'm not posting a review for you right after I post this is my cat. She wants to go to bed and I can't say no to her.
I do hope you guys stick around for my reviews(and hopefully they're not too horrible)!
