Thanks for joining me!
My name is Meredith. I’ve been reviewing books on my Goodreads page for over a year now. I get very nostalgic about almost anything. Some of my favorite memories from my childhood are me in the back of the school bus, small legs propped on the seat ahead of me, devouring books. My favorite was The Girl Who Could Fly by Victoria Forester.
A few summers ago I wanted to read Divergent again. It was a completely random urge, but I read it and then I read basically every other YA dystopia. And so now, dystopian is my favorite genre and I’m reading all the time. I’m always in the mood to talk about books, even if it’s one I haven’t read yet. My TBR is always growing, so if you have any recs, please share! I love reviewing books, so that’s why I made this blog. It’d make my whole day if you’d like to check out my posts.
My top three favorite books/series:
1. Divergent by Veronica Roth (unless you’re part of the minority who accepts Allegiant as a real book. If that’s the case, Divergent as a series is at the bottom of every list ever. Unless that list includes The Selection series. Of course I’m kidding…sort of.)
2. Legend by Marie Lu
3. A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving
A random list of facts/rants loosely based on/about me:
– FRUIT is a delicious thing that I feel deserves more respect (except for pears because ew)
– I just don’t like The Selection series…”don’t like” is weak…I wrote a 4,000 word review all about how much I (more accurately) hate it. whoops!
– Divergent doesn’t get enough love for the characterization of Tris. Oh, it won awards, you say? It was a bestseller, you say? Basically every teenage girl in the world has read it, you say? Not! Enough! Love!
– I HATE being behind on my reading challenge and yet…
– Taylor Swift is an icon!
– I guess I sorta kinda enjoy this whole reading/reviewing thing
– commas? Who are they? I’ll never use them 100% correctly.
Clearly I struggle with brevity.
Join me as I suffer through book slumps, write passionate reviews, and, hopefully, gush about a new favorite book. I’m just happy to be here 🙂.
