About Me


This blog is a catch-all for my thoughts on the books I’m reading.

If someone were to ask me “If you were stranded on a deserted island, which book would you want to have with you?” I would answer immediately and without hesitation, “The Scorpio Races by an elusive forest elf with suspiciously homicidal tendencies, the lovely Maggie Stiefvater.”  Maybe not those precise words.

Maybe those precise words.

I’m a Potter girl at heart, though several series have made a play for my affections including but not limited to: the Percy Jackson series (and its derivatives) by Rick Riordan (the crazy uncle of the forest), the Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer (who is the crazy genius who builds tunnels underneath the forest), the Ranger’s Apprentice series by John Flanagan (who commands the forest guard), anything by Tamora Pierce (who is definitely the warrior queen) and Patricia Briggs (the warrior queen’s spunky lady-in-waiting).

I’m a twenty-three-year-old about to graduate from the University of Kentucky with a BA in English.  I’m the tolerant owner of a goofy german shepherd named Dora and a sassy cat that I just call Cat.  I’m also a writer, which basically means I have the enthusiasm of a golden retriever but the attention span of a goldfish.  If you’d like to learn more about my writing, please visit me at Miz Writer Lady.
