I have it on good authority that when you read a book, part of your soul is trapped within the pages. In which case I have over a thousand horcruxes and will never die so you will all have to suffer my presence for eternity.
You can call me Austine. I’m a twenty-something research grant developer who enjoys reading dead trees. I’ve reviewed books since 2011 on NovelKnight, my heart and soul (yes, this blog is a horcrux too). My literary questing sends me to battle dragons and save princesses (and the occasional prince) and find a happily ever after.
It’s a work in progress.
If it’s mystical I’ve probably read it (or plan to, hard to tell with my TBR pile). I’m a sucker for nail-biting action and starry-eyed romances. And dragons. A book has dragons? GIMME. For a full list of my favorite genres, click here.
Pretty sure I’m actually just Mushu in human form.
To the important things in life:
I’m a Slytherin Horned Serpent (and proud!). I have both a Nook and a Kindle but prefer physical books. Everything’s better as a series (with the exception of The Night Circus and Uprooted because they’re fabulous). If you dog-ear my books I will find you. Monster reads are preferable to something short and sweet, but both have their perks. And if it’s packed with action and a starry-eyed romance? Hell yeah!

“Talk. About. Relevant. . . . Light and fluffy and fun.” —Internet Famous, Danika Stone (listed under posting for Sip Sip Bang Bang)
“I really enjoyed this glimpse into the other twin. It made me hate her a little less but not enough that she’s won me over completely (Jude is still my fave). Honestly if you’re deciding whether or not to buy this, DO IT. It gives more insight on Taryn’s character and I liked that I understood her reasoning more.” — The Lost Sisters, Holly Black (bookstagram feature)
