Hi everyone! My name is Mikayla, and I’m an 19-year-old girl who lives in central Indiana. I work at a library, so I get easy access to some of the coolest new books. I also contribute to the teen blog for said library, which can be found at http://www.khcplteenscene.blogspot.com. Reading is one of my favorite things to do, and I love finding new books that aren’t totally gross and only about vampires or werewolves or demons like so many books are today. I love talking about the books I read, so I decided that maybe a blog would help me stop bothering my mom by telling her the entire plot and storyline of books she doesn’t care about! I hope it helps even one person who’s looking for some unique, clean reading material, and if I accomplish that, it’s totally worth it!
I don’t want to bore anyone with details about all my favorite things, but I love sci-fi, love the Starbound series as well as the Lunar Chronicles (fan since Cinder, whaaat!), and yet I’ll read across almost any genre. However, my favorite quote comes from The Wrath and the Dawn, by Renee Ahdieh, a retelling of A Thousand and One Nights. Here it is (my whole purpose in editing my ABOUT page is so this is somewhere on my blog, because I love it).
“Do you think you are invincible? That you live off nothing but fresh dew and cold fury?”
There are a thousand and one amazing quotes from that book, but that one stops my heart every time. I love it. And now you have a glimpse into my head, where that quote swirls around every few days when I think of a book. Stay tuned for more random facts about me, and follow my blog to keep up with my reviews/ramblings/waitings!
