Female adult who loves to read books. I enjoy discussing and recommending them. You might say they are my hobby and addiction. I read anything I can get my hands on. I enjoy reading YA (young adult) and other kid books. And I love "adult" fiction and non-fiction. I love anything with a supernatural/paranormal or fantasy or science-fiction slant. I also enjoy mysteries, humor/comedy, historical and non-fiction like biographies or any history and research type books dealing with science.
Other things I enjoy is watching movies and I am a die-hard Firefly/Serenity fan (brown coat), Sherlock, Star Trek and Doctor Who nut (preferably any from the 2nd Doctor up to the 10th Doctor…11th Doctor I like, but the writing/overseeing by Moffat makes me want to scream at the plot holes and inconsistencies as well as just boring writing so I blame him, not the actor and WTH is going on with Clara who used to be awesome, but now is just…there? **headdesk**
I am enthralled with the possibilities of the Terminator universe and big time Supernatural fan after watching season 1. Dean rocks. Just sayin'.Same with Heroes. Is it bad to love Sylar? Yes? Awww...man… Comic books, graphic novels, anime and manga are also a weakness of mine though I don't get to keep up with that as I should on some titles. I also enjoy collecting artist's work. Some from the comic industry, some from the fantasy/sci-fi or children's book illustrations. I just started collecting prints of book covers.
Yes, I am a total geek who actually enjoyed school. I am in the process of finishing up my degree as i decided it is now or never. I love studying whatever catches my fancy. I enjoy learning about different cultures and love history. I am also fascinated and studying various languages, religions, and philosophies. I am also a nut about anything related to space and can be found often using my telescopes despite it being so cold at night.
I used to do reviews for various online magazines, but I decided to take a much needed break from reviews due to being enrolled in university while also working 40 hours a week. Doing so many papers a week sort of killed my raging need to blog for a while and do reviews, but I am slowly starting it back up just for fun and to keep track of my interests. Feel free to recommend any books as I am always looking for new authors or books to try.
(For those authors or publishers who would like me to review a book, please contact me through livejournal messages. I'll be posting a new e-mail address soon as i need to create a new one to send that to as the other one gets flooded with other things not so fun. )
I am on shelfari http://www.shelfari.com/shartyrant or under Shar T for those so inclined to see what I have read or am reading or plan on reading. I am also on goodreads.com under booktyrant. Feel free to add me as can't have too many friends who love books.
Okay. That is all I can think of for now. Feel free to friend me if you desire to do so. Don't be shy, I don't bite (much).
