Hello everyone! My name is Ellie (or at least, that’s the name I’m going by on this blog). I’m an avid reader and writer, and a semi-avid camper, hiker, and beginning runner. To keep myself fed, clothed, and housed, I work as a Medical Laboratory Technologist (currently in training), which means I get to test your blood to see if you’re sick or not.
Sometimes, when I read a book, I am completely engrossed in the story. At other times, there are those details or discrepancies that pull me out of the story and leave a sour taste in my mouth. I want to dedicate my blog to those things–good and bad–that happen in a book.
While I consider myself a writer, I tend to meander on blog posts. Thus, this will likely read more like a journal, a collection of rambling thoughts of things that I enjoyed, things that infuriate me, and occasional sour grapes about the publishing world in general (I’ll try to keep things positive, but from experience I’m sure that a few of those grumblings will leak through. And I’m one for honesty, so I tend to leave those bits unedited–for better or for worse).
If you want me to review your book, or if you think there’s a book I would enjoy, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. It may take me a little while to read through books you’ve written, but I’ll try to make them a priority. And please no MLM emails. I will block you.
