I’m going to begin with the boring but obligatory: my name is Jordyn. I am 22 years old and I have an addiction to books. I have decided to venture into blogging because I need a hobby. Other than reading, that is. So, a new blog/blogger/blogess is born. J. Bookish, about all things books. Now, I don’t know about you, but I have a pretty wide genre interest. I guess I would say my favorites are (in no particular order): literature, dystopian, YA, and fantasy, with a little bit of romance thrown in. If you’re like me and aren’t solely interested in one genre (if you are, you really need to branch out – you’re missing out on so many dream lands) then you’ll like this blog! Some of my reviews will be on new books, some will be on old.
Quest #1: I am currently attempting to read all of the books that I own and have not actually read. I keep “accidentally” re-reading books that I own that I HAVE read, but I am slowly moving through my collection. My quest is to have actually read my entire library, and I am going to use this blog to advance down that road. Because of this, my first section of reviews is going to be pretty damn random. But hey, books are timeless, and if they’re good, you should read them even if they were written before you were born. I will make another post with a list of my books-to-read soon.
Aspirations: I have two major aspirations. The first, somewhat predictably, is to write my own book. I have read countless stories by countless authors, and I am always in awe of how a truly well-written novel can take you out of the comfy chair/window seat/bed/tree/elevator you are currently real-world residing in and into the world the author created for you. I hope that some day I will be able to create one of these worlds myself. My attempts up to this point have been fairly disastrous and incredibly -well, lame- but I will hold fast to this dream nonetheless. My other dream is to some day own a summer camp. My real-world life typically revolves around working with children, and in all honesty, I generally like them better than adults. Maybe this fits in with the whole bookworm theme- those who love books never let go of their imagination, allowing them to hold on to a piece of that childlike innocence. Yeah I just went there. I can be deep, guys.
I’ll write again soon. Until then, keep reading.
