My name’s Alicia (aka AK) and I am a book-a-holic.

Since I was a kid, I’ve been in love with books and reading them. I grew up loving Judy Blume’s Fudge series, and crying over Bridge to Terabithia with the rest of my second grade class. Later on, I fell for J.K. Rowling’s legendary Harry Potter series, and became addicted to the world Cornelia Funke created in her Inkworld Trilogy.

Nowadays, the majority of what I read is YA (Young Adult), and thus most of the reviews on this site are for YA books. I enjoy all genres of YA, though recently I’ve been really into contemporary romances. I’ve also poked my head into the NA (new adult) genre, but what I’ve seen hasn’t totally wowed me yet (save for Tammara Webber and Colleen Hoover’s books). I also take a stab at an Adult book every now and again, usually by an author who’s written some YA books I’ve liked (Meg Cabot, Kelley Armstrong), or just authors I’ve been recommended (Sophie Kinsella).

I started this blog in 2009. That was probably when my reading obsession hit its high and I would talk about books all the time. Finally realizing I was starting to annoy my friends who, although awesome, just aren’t as enamored with literature as I am, I created this blog (which has changed names twice, and will not be changing names again… I promise!).

Even though I started this blog for me, I love that I can share my opinions and favourites with the world. So don’t be shy – please feel free to peruse and interact with my posts (tbh, comments and likes always make my day brighter).

What’s something about me that’s NOT related to the Internet or books?

I’ve lived in Canada my whole life, and have been out of the country a grand total of four times… to go to the USA.

I’m a full-time student, and I’m majoring in English.

I love art and writing. My hobbies mostly consist of polymer clay creations, jewellery design, writing poetry, and painting.

I watch dramas (Japanese or Taiwanese usually) and have a K-Pop obsession that almost rivals my book obsession. K-Pop wise, my favourite group is B2ST, but I also love SHINee, Super Junior, MBLAQ, B.A.P., and TroubleMaker. I also like Z.TAO and Raymond Lam within the C-Pop realm, as well as Arashi and NEWS in the world of J-Pop.

In the western hemisphere, my favourites include Marianas Trench and Panic! At the Disco. I also like Red, Sarah McLauchlan, Lifehouse, and Jessie J.

Anyways, that’s a little bit about me !

Thanks for reading~

    Hi Alicia, Thanks so much for your post for “Waiting for Romeo.” We have a lot in common..I love your fave actors, music and musicians that you have listed here :)

    • Hi ! My pleasure, I love your novel’s playlist ~
      That’s awesome, I think it’s so cool finding people with similar interests as you~
      Also, I am super excited to read “Waiting for Romeo”!
      Best of luck with future projects !

  2. Hey
    I hope you’re having an awesome day!
    My name is Yaron Levite, and for the last 3 years I’ve been pouring my life into a new novel titled THE MOHANDAS, a thriller set right in the middle of the Israeli Palestinian conflict.
    On August 5th I will be launching a Kickstarter campaign with the aim of pre-selling enough copies to allow me to fund the novel publication.
    It’d mean the world to me if you could help spread the word to your amazing community of readers.
    I have created a special website about the novel and even shot a short clip explaining about the Kickstarter campaign (I hate seeing myself on camera, but these days, you just have to…). The page is at http://www.yaronlevite.com.
    The site also has a sneak preview of the first 3 chapters so your readers can try before they buy J.
    Is there any chance you would be interested in helping? If yes, please let me know how I can make the writing process easy for your team. I’m happy to send press releases, articles and anything that could help. We launch Tuesday at 8am PST.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this,

    School is getting busy so no more exploring for me! I'll probably run around more later in the term, but for now it's time to hit the books!
QOTD: Which city has been your favourite to travel to?
Mine would be Stratford, haha, I'm having a blast here (despite the school aspect).

QOTD: Plan's for the weekend?
I'll be reading my textbooks all weekend, so nothing fun for me 😅 I guess this is what happens when you fall behind in school...
