I am a reader.
The first step to recovery is admitting you’re an addict. The thing is…I don’t want to recover. I love being a reader! I named my blog Bibliophage because I don’t just read books, I eat up every wonderful word and perfect turn of phrase.
Since I was a kid, I’ve loved books. When everyone else was picking out toys, I wanted a new book. There was a brief lull in my reading in middle school, but in 7th grade I discovered the joy of reading mysteries. When I went off to college, I tried really hard to declare Pharmacy as my major, but despite my best efforts, I ended up as an English major. I just couldn’t stop myself.
As an English major, I had to read A LOT of things I didn’t necessarily like. So, when I graduated, I took a couple of years off from reading. When I started up again, I vowed I would only read for enjoyment. I have pretty much kept that promise to myself.
I still love a good mystery, but my reading interests have branched out significantly. I now love thrillers, techno-thrillers, fantasy, urban fantasy, YA, straight fiction and the occasional classic. I am attempting to throw a little science fiction in there, but I’m very picky with which one’s I’ll try. Hopefully, Sci-fi will become a new favorite genre in the future. I typically do not read romance, biographies or non-fiction, but I try to never say never.
I decided to start blogging because I always loved writing in high school and college. I missed putting my words into black and white. Plus, I already read like a mad woman and did mini-reviews on Goodreads. I figured this might just be my niche.
So, there you go! That’s a little about me and my reading habits. I hope you’ll follow my blog, and I hope my reviews will be helpful in your quest for the next great book.
