About Me

I needed a place to talk about books. The books I read, that I want to read, that I couldn’t finish reading. If you’re a big reader who is tired of getting blank stares whenever you start talking about your latest adventure in literature you’ve come to the right place.

Basically, I’m a huge nerd. I read too much, watch a ton of movies, and play video games. I have a critical mind and often find myself reading books that I have a strong urge to comment on. With movies or video games there is a possibility that I will know someone personally with which to have a conversation about it but with books it seems to be rare that anyone has read the same ones. So here is where I shall stick my comments, ramblings, rants, and meandering trains of thought. Enjoy.

On a more personal note, if that’s what you’re looking for in an about me section… I go by Amanja and have since high school. I value my alone time but crave validation from strangers on the internet. I am in my 30s and am proud of my comic book knowledge and other nerdoms but I have strong gaps in fantasy and don’t really read romance. I can’t keep up with everything! So I know much more about Marvel than Game of Thrones.

I identify as a cis female bisexual, use the her/she pronouns, and am currently in a relationship. I have a bachelor’s of science in forensic sciences, work my day job making bone and tissue grafts for implantation, and volunteer every weekend at a local science museum doing genetics research. I am a skeptic and atheist and am constantly on the lookout for great nonfiction books that will teach me anything new about our amazing world. I try to steer clear of political books anymore cause in our current age they just angry up my blood and I need escapism more than hypertension.
