About Me

a real Live Wire.

"I don’t feel ashamed about not having read certain books. Reading anything because you think you “should” doesn’t make a lot of sense to me. It seems more pleasurable and more useful to follow whatever bizarre interests and tastes are peculiar to you."- Emma Cline

The book I couldn’t finish:
"Many. Lots. Several. There’s no shame in it. If a book doesn’t hold your interest, it’s probably the book’s fault."- Patrick Ness

Sometimes I re-rate books.
