Thanks for visiting my blog! I thought I’d start by telling you a little bit about myself and this blog.

My name is Casey and I am the bookish type. People I know say that I have a different book every time they see me. I don’t really remember how this love affair with reading started, but it’s been a part of my personality for as long as I can remember. There are so many amazing books in the world, it sometimes makes me sad that I’ll never get to read them all. I also aspire to a career in publishing and was told that reviewing books would be good experience, plus it’s fun to share my joy with fellow bookworms. I hope you enjoy! Feel free to leave suggestions for books you think I should read and review!

A few of my favorite books include (but are by no means limited to):

All of Jane Austen’s novels (Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma, Mansfield Park, Persuasion, Northanger Abbey)

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling

The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer

The Host by Stephenie Meyer

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton

The Mediator Series by Meg Cabot

A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf

The Princess Bride by S. Morgenstern

The Percy Jackson & the Olympians Series by Rick Riordan

All of Sarah Dessen’s books (especially This Lullaby, Just Listen, The Truth About Forever, Lock and Key, and Along for the Ride)

The Uglies Series by Scott Westerfeld

The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown

“A Midsummer Night’s Dream” by William Shakespeare

“Much Ado About Nothing” by William Shakespeare

The Anne of Green Gables Series by L.M. Montgomery

and the list goes on…
