Introducing The Book List

am so excited to finally be introducing this new addition to the blog. I’ve wanted to share my love for reading with you all for so long. I used to post my summer reading lists but stopped because it felt disconnected to my content at the time but it’s been really nagging me not to share.  Occasionally I would mention the books I was reading in a blog post but it wasn’t enough. All my spare time is spent reading and my love of books is a huge part of who I am. So let me finally introduce you to the Book List.

What’s the Book List?

It’s a series where I will share what I’m reading, what I want to read and my opinions on the books I read every month.

What type of books do I enjoy reading?

My favorite genre by far is fantasy. I read a lot of fantasy, it’s the only genre that matches my imagination. I love getting to explore new worlds, magic, and supernatural elements. Reading fantasy always spurs my creative juices.

I also really love reading historical and literary fiction. Of course, I also love the literary classics. I have minor in literature after all not to mention I took an entire course on Jane Austen in college. It’s still one of my most favorite classes I’ve ever taken, I mean Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy. I swoon.

I also enjoy reading memoirs and non – fiction. Occasionally I will also read contemporary.The only thing I don’t read is horror. Not touching that genre with a ten-foot pole. But all in all, you can expect my book list to contain quite a bit of variety.

Will there be reviews on the books?

There won’t be a review for each individual book I read. At least not on the blog. If you want a more in-depth review you can follow me on my Goodreads or Tumblr.For the blog, I will do a mini review for each book that is on my end of the month wrap up post. You’ll get more details in future posts.

This is all I wanted to get out for now. I hope you all really enjoy this new segment to the blog and don’t worry there will still be plenty of fashion.  Check out what I read in May below and check back next week for a new Book List.
