About meI'm a poor college student with a passion for reading. I love urban fantasy and paranormal romance but I read just about anything. If I could only read one book for the rest of my life, I would pick Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire hands down. Nothing will ever compare to growing up with those books.

About my libraryMy library here holds the books I've read in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011, whether or not I actually own them. I've only begun writing reviews in 2011.

Oh that would be terrible, I always seem to remember books. Like this David Copperfield novel that I've been reading since 10th grade and haven't gotten around to finishing the last 500 pages and I still somehow remember lol. I don't like to talk about the plot, especially the ending because I do it for other readers. So I try to talk about the more emotional aspects of a novel and some of the technical characteristics.

I'm waiting for the discounts to go up a little more before I hit it up for some serious book shopping! Hopefully there will still be books around lol

I'm not a stickler for history considering I read fictional novels lol I don't see why that would even be an important factor since it isn't real anyways. I do love dystopian novels though, those are the type of books that inspire philosophical thinking and reexaminations of the daily structures of our lives.

Well thank you for telling me there was a sequel! Another book to add to my pile of "to read"
That makes sense. Although saying you are a book wizard sounds way cooler ;) I actually don't review much and I'm not on other websites. I think LibraryThing is good enough. I always mean to review the books I read but sometimes it gets put on the back burner due to school and I never get around to them.

I tried to find Wither at Borders the other day because they were having a liquidation sale and I don't think they had it! The reviews for the novel seemed to be a little skewed as to how they like it (one person didnt like that the historical facts weren't correct, which may have been done on purpose) but it looks good. Have you read The Adoration of Jenna Fox? It's kind of similar and very good.
I wanted to tell you that I enjoyed your review of Wither by Lauren DeStefano. Personally, I have not read the novel (although I have an intense desire to that is only quelled by the 160+ books I own and have not read). The way you described the book was exactly the same as what The Mists of Avalon inspired in me as I read it. I have also noticed that several of the books you have reviewed are all extremely positive. Is that from good book judgement or do you just love most of the books you read?
