About

Renae here, coming to you live, (well, at least once in a blue moon) from Australia!

As you can probably tell, I love to read. The books that I like to read the most are contemporary, magic based, and heist- and assassin-based novels, but heaven forgive you if you try to get me to read ANOTHER vampire book (Twilight and it's Twi-hards somehow managed to kill the genre for me - without any beheading or stakes through the heart!).

I am currently studying a Bachelor Engineering with Computer Science, trying to balance my addiction to books with the need to study AND have a social life. I think that I am managing . . . just. Thankfully, after all of that, I still find time - usually in the wee hours of the morning - to sit down and blog about all the wonderful books that I have read, or (a more lengthy list) of those that I wish to read.

Moving to the other side of the country away from my family, friends, and where I grew up, to attend university was a major (and slightly terrifying) milestone in my life. But, it was like the catalyst in a novel, propelling the characters to begin their misadventures. It forced me out there into the real world with its never ending cycle of bills and laundry. It has enabled me to grow into (what I like to think is) a fully fledged adult that can do things like my taxes, and eat my vegetables. Then, when all that adulting becomes too much, I just grab one of those magical, book sized portals that cover my shelves, transport me to their wonderful worlds. So a big THANK YOU to all the authors out there doing me this wonderful service!

When I haven't got my nose stuck in a book - textbook or novel, likewise - I love to sketch and play music. Oh, and I also love maths - I would be miserable in engineering if I didn't - so don't let the blonde hair and the stereotype that stalks it, fool you! It's a little bit hard being a female in a male world - but it's okay. When I show them what I am capable of, the victory will be all the more satisfying. And when I need a little help, my classmates are more than willing to lend a hand. ;)

So that's me! Love me or hate me (or even a little of both), but either way READ MY BLOG!

Happy Reading!
