Profile PictureI’m a pre-med college student with an impressive lack of free time and a high tolerance for caffeinated beverages.  Having grown up in a rural town, I’m mildly addicted to country music, pickup trucks, and horseback riding.

Favorite Genres:  I’ve been binging fantasy and historical fiction recently, interspersed with the occasional new adult novel.

Favorite Books: Water for Elephants, Les Miserables, A Tale of Two Cities, The Coldest Girl in Coldtown

Favorite Authors: J.K. Rowling, Cassandra Clare, Lauren Oliver, Charles Dickens

Unhealthy Obsessions

  • Coffee. As any of my friends can substantiate, I’m absolutely intolerable until I’ve had a healthy 1-2 cups. My mood generally improves from there.
  • Hoarding books, because what good is self restraint?
  • Acquiring additional book boyfriends. And yes, they are all mine!
  • Independent, kick-ass heroines who don’t need no man and firmly attest that emotions are for the weak.

Pet Peeves

  • I have zero tolerance for fluffy contemporary novels that are laden with stereotypical tropes and are severely lacking a plot. I solely foray into the contemporary genre when I am maniacally wishing to write a rant-laden review.
  • Insta-love, love triangles, and similarly overwritten cliches that are incorporated into literary relationships with infuriating frequency and never fail to enrage me.
  • Damsels in distress who remain stuck in frustratingly prohibitive nineteenth century ideologies in which women are utterly incapable of accomplishing anything by themselves, let alone saving their own lives.
