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~
