I’m Amy, a 20-something reader, writer, and coffee-drinker.

This blog actually started as a class assignment in the Spring of 2013, when I had to cover a topic I was interested in, and
could find a semester’s worth of topics to cover. I absolutely dreaded blogging at that point, and it was always
looming over me to have to update it.

It wasn’t until the class ended that I realized how much I really loved it: once I could write about whatever I wanted, however I wanted to do so. Now there’s nothing I love more than having a place to freak out about books with other people who love talking about books.

Because I never get sick of talking and writing about books (and everything in between) you can also find me:

  1. Stumbled over here from the “101 Books” blog (after seeing your post about The Goldfinch) and wanted to say you’ve got a fantastic site! Keep up the reviews; I look forward to reading them.

  2. Hi Amy, so glad to have stumbled across your blog. 🙂 I adore your header image, it’s so simple but it really works, and that blue is my favourite colour at the moment!

      1. Right on! Do you review the books you read in class or do you find the time to read other books outside of class? I found it quite a struggle to read anything apart from the required readings during my courses.

  3. Hi! You’re blog popped up as one I thought I would be interested in and on a whim I decided to check it out. I would just like to say that I love your title. It is so cute and I love play on words (if that is what you were going for). I just think it is a great and so far I love your site! Can’t wait to read more from you! 🙂

  4. I started my blog for a class, too, in spring 2012! I’m pretty excited to learn that I’m not the only blogger who had very little interest in blogging at the beginning. I’m glad we both stuck around!

  5. Hey Amy! Stumbled upon your blog researching people interested in Magic Realism. Really liked the list of books to read you posted on BookBub. I will be checking out quite a few of those.

    I just finished a book of short stories about my travels around the world that veer into realms of magic realism: Travels in the Seven Directions.

    Not sure you have time to read it (I see how many books you are reading all the time 🙂 ) but I’d be glad to send you a copy.
