Yes, greetings! I am the one behind the wheel of this particular clown car. Who I am is not really relevant, though what I am perhaps is: I’m currently a graduate student pursuing a doctorate in plant biological sciences. I am also an inveterate geek. This will likely become obvious the more I post. This way lies nerdery. Ye be warned.
What I want to do with this blog is to review books, straight and simple. I will start with a systematic review of the books I currently have on my bookshelves (and there are a lot), and add other books as I read them. The majority of these books will probably be science fiction or fantasy– my first loves of the book world. However, I am also a scientist, so there will be reviews of nonfiction books of a scientific sort popping in every once in a while. There’ll be graphic novels, such as comics and manga (occasionally manhwa), too.
I’m going to review books that I love, books that I hate, and books that were ‘meh.’ I want to be as frank as possible about why I loved or hated those books while still trying not to spoil the whole story, but if spoilers do make an appearance, I will provide warnings so they can be avoided. Each review will also include a ‘warning’s section at the end, where I’ll try to provide a heads up if the book contains any of the more prevalent ‘triggers’.
