Sasha and me at the beach.

Hey everyone, my name is Matthew and welcome to my blog. On this site I will focus primarily on books but there will be moments where I may want to talk about my life, music, movies, or the latest episodes of my favorite tv shows. Those will be rare occasion so for the most part I will be talking about books. If I am being honest I HATED books growing up. School made reading become a chore thanks to state testing exams and other nonsense that made my reading experience horrendous. Once I entered High School, I was left to my own devices and that is when I started reading on my own and discovered a whole other world that could entertain me for hours on end. I read the Harry Potter series and my world completely changed and after concluding the series I made the decision that books will forever become an essential part of my life.

Another booster is Goodreads. I discovered the website around the time I was reading Harry Potter and the whole aspect of rating books, getting recommendations, and communicating with users from all different parts of the world made the literary experience memorable and pleasurable. I am a collector of stories and I will read anything if the plot or description interests me (plus if the book cover is gorgeous). Some of my favorite authors are J.K. Rowling, Stephen King, Rick Riordan, and Neil Gaiman.

Less about me and more about books…
