I am Marissa and I am a reader. My mom has a picture of me at 6 months on my Gramma’s lap looking at a book, not eating it or tearing at it, but looking and listening as my Gramma read to me. My mom points to this as proof that I was born to be a reader. But I love to do so much more than read. I love to talk with others about what we are reading. Books have so much depth, insight, language, culture and so many more things that call out to me to be talked through with others. And so I have created this blog as a way to get some of those thoughts out into the world and to create discussion with others. Each post is going to be centred around literature, either a review of a book that I have read and my dissection of that book, or my thoughts on publishing, or an opinion on something book-related. Let the blogging begin!
