A lot of this idea is whim that I’ve had, as most of my schemes are. I love looking around at what other people do and I get inspired to do something as well. My current inspiration would be Youtubers that I admire, but this is mostly from Zoella. She has done videos, which I have only just recently watched, about a book club that she has partnered with and it made me want to do something similar. I would like this to be a forum for book discussion and recommendation, as well as a place to have fun. I wouldn’t mind expanding to other passions that I have, but I want to start with reading as that is my main love.
My current read is “The Red Pyramid” by Rick Riordan, which is one of my favorite middle-grade writers. I have finished the “Percy Jackson” series’ and I have started the ones that he is currently writing “Magnus Chase” and “Trials of Apollo.” My niece, who turns me onto a lot of books, insisted that “The Red Pyramid” should not be skipped. Which led to me starting it last night, I would’ve finished it today, if I had the chance. I will keep everyone posted on how I find this novel.
My favorite genres include: Young Adult, Fantasy, Manga, and Fiction. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in English from Kent State University; and while I am about to return to school to pursue a degree in Nursing, I wanted to make more use of my English degree other than being very marketable and able to think in a non-traditional manner.
My To-Read List:
- “Summer People” by Elin Hilderbrand
- “Lady Midnight” by Cassandra Clare
- “Always and Forever, Lara Jean” by Jenny Han
- “The Dark Prophecy” by Rick Riordan
- “A Clash of Kings” by George R. R. Martin
- “Carry On” by Rainbow Rowell
- “Girl Online” by Zoe Suggs
- “Crazy Rich Asians” by Kevin Kwan
- “If I Was Your Girl” by Meredith Russo
- “The One We Fell in Love With” by Paige Toon
If you have any suggestions of books or content that you would like to see me do, or give an opinion on please let me know! I am new to this and would be very grateful to any ideas that you may have! I will post a link to my Instagram, once I figure out how to as that is my primary form of social media– although I may start using Twitter more.
