I am an avid reader and love, more than anything, to recommend books to others and engage in literary discussions. I'm not picky about what I read-- I love mysteries, classic fiction, historical fiction, non-fiction, and especially stories that are entertaining but relate to my love of science and medicine.

This blog will mostly feature book reviews- I don't know how great I am at critiquing though, because it is rare that I don't enjoy something. Each piece of writing seems to have something to redeem it, something it can teach us.


"I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library."
- Jorge Luis Borges, "Poema de los Dones"

Okay guys, here’s the big news! 
See this journal right here? This journal is going with me to BookCon in May to be autographed by the amazing authors who will be there (I’ll add which authors will be signing once it gets posted on thebookcon.com).
Now here’s the cool part for you guys: for every single person who reblogs this, I will write his or her url down in the journal, and at BookCon if I happen upon any other tumblr book bloggers those urls will go in the journal too. If you want your url written in any fancy way or with your name next to it or something cool like that, just send me a message and I’ll be happy to oblige!
Not only this, but once everything is said and done, I may be able to send this journal to one lucky reblogger of this post! Note that this is only a possibility, but how cool would that be?! 
This is going to be such a cool souvenir guys and let me remind you that every single person who reblogs this gets his or her name written down. Every single one.So go ahead and reblog, and may the odds of your possible winning be ever in your favor!

This is a really cool idea— thanks for letting me know!

people who can’t accept comments and opinions over their favorite books are the people my mom warned me about. not everyone will love your favorite book and at some point someone will point out the flaws that you might have not seen before and you need to respect that because we all have different opinions on books. on everything.

Finished “The Scorch Trials” on the way home and started the final book.

Eep. Wish me luck. I have this pestering voice in the back of my head that says I may be disappointed when all is revealed.

I personally say it’s not over until you read “The Kill Order,” the prequel to the trilogy. I felt like reading that fourth book really brought it all together, and it greatly improved my overall impression of the series. 

recoverymemoirs:

I swear to everything this is the realest shit there is. You will be a refection of the people you surround yourself with. If you have people around that care about you and your health, that make you laugh, smile and you look forward to seeing, you won’t even realise it but you will get better. You will be happy and you will find recovery, I promise.

28 Books You Should Read If You Want To

bibliophileanon:

You should read the book that you hear two booksellers arguing about at the registers while you’re browsing in a bookstore.

You should read the book that you see someone on the train reading and trying to hide that they’re laughing.

You should read the book that you see someone on the train…

I love looking up and reading books that are mentioned in other books.

To honor Peter Matthiessen, who passed away over the weekend, The New Yorker unlocked part of one of the author’s best pieces of travel writing. The piece, titled “The Last Wilderness,” follows Matthiessen as he travels down the Amazon River. (His last novel comes out this week, as well.)
