About Me and Contact

Hello (welcome, dear reader) ~

Welcome to my blog (I hope you like it!). I created this blog in 2016 to share my passionate (and unwanted nor needed) opinions on my reading life because my friends are pretty much wholly fed up with me constantly trying to talk about books.


The Reading Life is a blog that revolves basically around anything that has relations to books, reading, or sometimes writing. Here you can find everything from lists, book reviews, book suggestions, and interviews, to articles. I specifically have a really severe obsession with enemies-to-lovers relationships, so this is the blog to visit if you enjoy that too, since I post about it (a lot). 


Here is a list of facts about me for you to get to know me:

  • I’m a Sherlockian
  • I’m a Detective Conan fan, the murder mystery anime show
  • I’m a huge Studio C fan. They’re a sketch comedy show on BYUtv, and I re-watch their videos every single day. They also have a YouTube channel that they’re really active on: https://www.youtube.com/user/BYUTelevision
  • I’m really open to all genres, but romance and fantasy would forever be my all-time favourite. 
  • I’m also a huge Percy Jackson Fan (anyone who knows me knows this)
  • I have Kindle named Andrick, after Aldrik from The Air Awakens Series by Elise Kova
  • I love the Soulsborne games (it’s my favourite video game franchise of all time) and Death Stranding
  • My favourite characters from Assassin’s Creed are Ezio and Arno (especially Arno, I love him)
    • Elise’s death killed me ?
  • If it isn’t obvious enough, Arno is my video game crush ?
  • Percy Jackson is the reason for my passion in fantasy books today
  • Also thanks to Percy Jackson, I’m a walking Greek and Roman mythology encyclopedia
  • Way Down We Go by Kaleo is my favourite song
  • Laura from Logan is my favourite X-Men character 
  • I cook. Since Middle School, I’ve been cooking for my parents
  • My favourite cooking show is Hell’s Kitchen, and Gordan Ramsy is my favourite chef
  • My favourite directors are the Russo brothers, the Duffer brothers, and Peter Jackson
  • I do martial arts (Taekwondo)
  • If I can have one superpower, it’ll either be Laura’s claws and healing ability or telekinesis
  • My favourite authors are Rachel E. Carter, Elise Kova, Rick Riordan, and Jane Austen
  • My favourite stones are moonstones, diamonds, and garnet (garnet’s my birthstone)
  • My favourite pattern is chevron. I’m absolutely obsessed with it
  • I love Coffee
  • My favourite tea is Barley Tea
  • I’m a big Gordon Ramsay fan (especially for his shows such as Kitchen Nightmares, Hells Kitchen, Hotel Hell, etc.)
  • My favourite movie series of all time is The Lord of The Rings (and The Hobbit). And it’s also the movie series I’ve watched the most number of times (about 20. I’m not kidding. I watch it every few weeks when I feel like it)

  1. Dear Anne,
    I found your website The Reading Life on the Indie Book Review listing.
    I especially enjoyed your review of A. C. Huntley’s The Galactic Zookeeper’s Guide To Heists and Husbandry.

    Please allow me to introduce myself. Here is the author synopsis on my Amazon author page:
    Debbie Hightower is a lifelong North Carolina resident and newspaper reporter who recently made the transition to writing science fiction novels. She is an avid fan of science fiction as well as the emerging technologies that will one day take humans across the cosmos and allow them to explore the stars and planets beyond the solar system.

    I am a fellow Gordon Ramsey fan. If you decide to read, my book, you will discover that we also have a love of coffee in common. Have you ever taken a look at The Great British Baking Show? I have watched all the seasons and episodes.
    The book I believe you will want to review is

    I believe you will enjoy American Survivor.
    I am attaching a MOBI file of the manuscript for your convenience.
