Hi, I’m Nicolena!
I guess we should get to know each other…
I was sitting around one day desperately wanting to talk about the books I’ve been reading and figured what better place to do it than the internet? I use to teach high school and college and now I work for an education publishing company. I graduated back in 2018 with my Masters of Arts in American Literature and toy with the idea of going back for a PhD one day. My thesis project for my MA can be found somewhere on ProQuest and is titled “Exploring Narrator-Reader Relationships with Jim Thompson’s Victims of Circumstance: Lou Ford, Dolly Dillon, William “Kid” Collins, and Charles Bigger”. If that title wasn’t a mouth full… wow!
I don’t get to discuss the books I read as often as I’d like, so here I am…writing reviews about the ones I pick up. I don’t necessarily always stick to the same genre (or review every book I read) and I think you’ll find a good variety. Lately I’ve been reading relatively new novels but now and then I’ll pick up something a little older, especially when it’s a pick made by one of the book clubs I’m in. I should note that while I work under a larger publishing umbrella, the opinions and commentary about books are my own and do not reflect that of any organizations I’m affiliated with!
Keep in touch with me here and follow me on social media to see what I’m reading now.
