About Susan

Come one, come all, be welcomed! ♥

In the Pursuit of Literacy!

You have stepped into the world of a newly-minted Literature major who finally found her calling in life.  Biology offers insight into cells, the thrum of veins, and the beat of the heart in your breast. Literature, however, is the human condition at work. It is curiosity, open minds, breath. It is life. And how I love it so! ♥ There’s nothing more thrilling to me than the feel of crisp pages between my fingers. Coco Chanel has nothing on the scent of a new book. Rembrandt and Michelangelo could never capture a more beautiful sight than a filled bookshelf that is bursting at the seams! There is no better feeling than questions forming in your mind as you read, challenging your ideas and forming new ones from those ashes.

This blog is dedicated to furthering and promoting the love of the written word and reading by providing reviews of books of all genres. This is for all of the tweens, teens, and adults; the book connoisseurs and the tentative reader; for the bloggers out there and book lovers of all ages. (: This is for the pursuit of literacy, proper grammar, and an open mind.

“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.” ~ Aristotle

  1. Wow your a great writer too! Looking forward to your posts!

    • Aww, thank you, Lizzie! I’m hoping to at least post something every few days and aiming at one book review per week. (: Welcome to the blog! ♥

  2. …”proper grammar” Oh boy, I am afraid to write! 😦 But will keep on reading it’s really goooood! 🙂 Keep on enlightening us pls!!!

    • No need to be frightened! I promise to be very gentle with my proper grammar teachings! I’ll be posting small lessons on grammar and interesting quotes every few days and hopefully a book review per week. Welcome to the blog, Patty! 😀

  3. “Coco Chanel has nothing on the scent of a new book.” I know! I can’t get into the Kindle craze. I’m trying to convince myself that it could be complementary to print copies and not replace them all… but every time I decide on a new book, I want the print copy.

    • I go through the same argument in my head over and over about that as well! I’d adore a Kindle or a Nook Color just because they seem so useful when you’re out and about and can’t carry as many books as you’d like. It’s just that I’d miss touching the pages of a book or smelling that book scent or seeing them all crowding around in my book shelf.

      I’m glad I’m not the only one!

      • Nope, you’re not alone. I also can’t decide between a Kindle or a Nook so that adds to my procrastination. I love Amazon so I lean towards the Kindle, but my neighbor has a Nook and can share books with me if I get one. So by not being able to decide, I’ve effectively made the decision not to buy one yet.

  4. I like your fascination with words.

  5. Hey Susan, I’m starting to ask people for guest posts for my blog. Would you like to write one? It could be about what you like to see in a fiction book or it could be a post you’ve already written and posted on your own blog. My blog (not my book review one) is focused on writing and reading, so anything that fits into those broad categories would work. Let me know if you’re interested. 🙂

    • Oh wow, Alexis! I’d be honored to write something for your blog! I’m just… Wow, I’m so floored by this, and my cheeks might be about to crack because of how wide I’m smiling. 😀 Thank you so much! Just thank you! (I’m sorry if my post sounds a little hyper, but I just feel so excited about this! It definitely made my day!)

      Is there a specific day you’d like it to be completed? (:

      • I’m glad you’re excited about it! That’s awesome!

        No specific day. Just email me whenever you get the time to write one. It can be as brief or as long as you like. Just include a short bio, a photo, and any links you’d like advertised.


        Thanks so much!
