BOOKISH

I have always considered myself a bookworm, a reader. My childhood was all about Enid Blyton, Nancy Drew, the Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen series and other typical pre-teen books. I then devoured Young Adult fiction throughout my adolescent. But at fifteen, I discovered classics. Jane Austen specifically. And I fell in love with that genre. Soon, I branched out to historical fiction and I must say it is still my favourite genre.

Despite my love for reading, I wasn’t consistent with it in my late teens. I got caught up with school work and I didn’t realise that I could actually study literature and make something out of that. I was persuaded into thinking that the Arts has no role in life and so I went on the Science path. I don’t regret it, however. I do enjoy Science. But I wish I had also gone deeper into Literature in an academic setting

Now, I endeavour to reignite that passion of mine and read more books. So on this page, I shall list the books that I want to read and the books that I want to acquire.
