Hello everyone! My name is Kathy, I am 24 years old, a third year Theology undergraduate in London, and I have a problem… I spend a ridiculous amount of time and money on books, specifically novels. However, this issue is definitely a positive one, and I hope to deepen my love for literature, and connect with other like-minded people, particularly through Goodreads and YouTube.
So, what sort of novels do I like? In all honesty, I can be something of a literature harlot; any novel with an interesting and slightly unique plot is usually enough to draw me in. I predominantly read slightly fantastical or historical fiction, and also have a keen interest in post-apocalyptic, speculative, and alternate history literature. Although I do not read as much of it, I do read a little YA as well, as well as sci-fi novels. I am not particularly keen on romance or mystery novels, but I will read them on occasion, and I am slowly falling in love with horror fiction too, particularly through the work of Stephen King.
I intend to use this blog in correlation with my YouTube channel (Much Ado About Novels) to give longer and more in-depth looks at the books I review. While I really do want to talk on and on about the books I read, I think it would be best to do so here, so that anyone who sees any of my reviews on YouTube and wants to know some of my views/analysis in more detail can do so, and hopefully bring about some discussion.
I will be posting a more in-depth review of A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab either today or tomorrow, as well a post about how I’ll be reviewing books (i.e. my rating system), so stay posted. In the meantime, thank you for looking at my blog, hopefully I seem like an intriguing little book ferret, and I hope you like my reviews!
