I spent four years of school analyzing and discussing books, and I have to say, I really miss it.
A few things about me: my name is Grace and I graduated from the University of Puget Sound in 2016 with a degree in English Literature. I’ve always loved writing and reading. There was a time when I would stick my Paddington Bear in a tree and tell him stories. Why a tree you ask? Captive audience of course.
This blog was born out of a love for the way books can make us think, and a need to put my thoughts somewhere besides my poor family who have no idea what I’m talking about. There will be some reviews, but I will also be doing analysis while I read. It is my personal belief that “analysis” as we often discuss it sounds too clinical and academic. Look at a review of a movie that goes in-depth into why it is good or bad. Even check out a post (make sure it’s real news) about an event or why something is problematic/shining a light on a current issue. All of those writers are digging deeper into media in order to share it’s greater influences and implications. You don’t need to be published on JSTOR to make valid points regarding feminism (or lack thereof) in YA fiction.
