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’m a high school Language Arts teacher and an Adjunct Professor of English Composition at a local college in South Florida. 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’m one of those… I failed English almost every year in high school only find out in college that it was my favorite subject to study. My students love finding that out and it definitely gives them some inspiration.

I don’t get to discuss all the books I read in my everyday life, so here I am…writing reviews about the ones I pick up. I don’t necessarily always stick to the same genre 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.

Keep in touch with me here and follow me on social media to see what I’m reading now.
