I’m a book-obsessed twentysomething with a B.A. in writing who works in a science-based field. I don’t get to talk enough about bookish things in my day-to-day life, so I love that I’ve been able to connect with more readers through blogging and Instagram.
My favorite type of books are unique books; I love creativity in writing, whether that means a unique concept, writing structure, or character. I read a lot of science fiction and fantasy in all their iterations (magical realism, speculative fiction, dystopian fiction, etc) but I also read from a variety of genres including realistic fiction, YA, and nonfiction. Favorite authors include Margaret Atwood, Octavia Butler, Jose Saramago, N.K. Jemisin, Roxane Gay, Ilona Andrews, and Jeff Vandermeer. I absolutely love getting book recommendations and finding new ways to branch out in my reading.
