About Me

Hello!  Welcome to 'Bookish Books', which is run by me (Brittany).  That's me in the picture, I am obviously not the furry little crumpet, though there are days I wish I was.  Ahh, to live the life of a dog, to sleep and eat when you want to, to chase after your own tail when you're bored.  Sounds like living if you ask me.

Anyways, my name is Brittany, I'm 26 years old, and I live in the Midwest (okay Wisconsin).  I have big dreams, small ambitions, and a heart of gold.

I started 'Bookish Books' because of something my favourite teacher used to tell me.  He would say, "Brittany, there are days when...", okay well that's a lie.  I started this blog because I love to read, and I love to write.  So I said to myself (which I tend to do a lot lately), "Brittany, might as well put your mad skills to good use", and thus this blog was born, on a cold dark night in January of 2012.

I like to think of myself as a geek at heart.  My parents, who, bless their souls, were geeks as well.  I cannot tell you how much geekery my family talks about on a daily basis.  I grew up with old episodes of Doctor Who, Friday, and then Sunday nights in our household were reserved only for The X-Files, and let us not even get into our ER, The West Wing, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer nights.

From a very small age, I was reading.  My dad was a huge book worm, and read anything and everything from Stephen King, and Tom Clancy to Charles Dickens, and John Steinbeck, so it kind of stuck with me.  I'm one to read anything that looks and sounds interesting.  I'm big into Horror & Science Fiction though, and always love a good scare when it comes down to it.

I spend most of my days working, and when I'm not working I'm online social networking, or catching up on the TV shows I've missed (seriously, I'm like 2 years behind).  I listen to a lot of music, I watch a lot of movies/TV and I like to get rowdy*.

I am also currently in the process of writing my first novel, which to be fair has taken me almost 10 years (still on the 1st chapter, whaaaaaaat?!), and thus showing you that procrastination will be the death of me.

I hope to use this blog as a way to get in contact with other book bloggers!  I love to read reviews, and am always looking for a book to read.

Hope you enjoy your time here, and remember, no matter what people tell you, books are amazing.  Don't be afraid to read a good book.  Those who  make fun of people who read don't know what they are missing.

*If by "rowdy" you mean putting the kettle on and making tea, while dancing around my house in my PJ's, then yes, I'm like to get "rowdy".
