Introduction

Welcome to the Batty Bookshelf!

This post is just a short introduction about who I am and what exactly this journal is for.

My name is Brittanie and I'm a struggling English major in Arizona; struggling because I spend more much time reading than on homework. I read mostly young adult literature but I'm not biased against any other genre. As a 'young adult' who acts even younger, these books are just ones I can relate to and are more interesting. My favourite authors (who have more than one book out currently) are Stephenie Meyer, Chris Wooding, and Amelia Atwater-Rhodes. Most of the books I read are vampire-related but I also like a good realistic fiction based in the modern era.

I decided to create a journal specifically for book reviews to help me hone the skill of critique and review. As a career goal, I hope to be a book editor and I think that this will help me develop these skills. But these reviews aren't just going to be academically based, so don't think this journal is going to be full of dry reviews that pick apart the books every detail. I actually enjoy reading and will only be reading and reviewing books I'm interested in and I hope that comes across in each entry.

Please friend me and always comment if you find my reviews helpful or inspiring! I need all the ego boosts I can get. ;)
