Check out my flickr to see my swaps, spoiler warning for those I am sending to (September 15, 2013) Hiatus My health has sadly not improved and I don't know when I will be back. I miss all of you and wish you a happy season! To my pen pals: I have received your letters, and will reply to you via PC when I hopefully have a good day. I also dropped all of my groups to make room for active swappers.
I became a dedicated fiend of the Fantasy genre the moment Rowling's Chamber of Secrets found it's way onto my reading list in the 8th grade. I always return when life becomes exhausting and escapism is a requirement.
In high school and into college I embraced Horror, Dystopian, and Apocolyptic novels. Stephen King's The Stand was read repeatedly in between bouts of Lovecraft, Poe, Bradbury, and Orwell. I also joined the Zombie craze with relish enjoying any and all books involving a wicked virus strain raising the dead.
When I returned to Fantasy again after college I snapped up every long drawn-out mystical series I could find. Jordan, Rothfuss, Sanderson, McKillip, Jemisin, the list goes on and on.
As I found myself scraping the bottom of the barrel in the world of Fantasy and YA at the end of 2012, I decided it was time for something new. Mystery.
As of writing this I am adding Louise Penny to my list, as her Inspector Gamache series has grabbed me and won't let go.
I am also on Goodreads
I am currently investing my time with the following swaps/crafts. This will change sporadically.
I will do my absolute best to send you something you will love and treasure. I always do my research before sending something, just as I would want someone to do for me.
The best advice I've seen here is, "If you're having trouble sending out your ATC because you love it so much, you're doing it right". I've found this to be true with every single one of my swaps, and I plan to continue in this fashion.
I will always send my swap on time, no exceptions.
When I receive your swap I will rate and comment within 48hrs.
All of my letters/packages will include my username, email, and name of the swap.
To make it a little easier, the items in bold are things I especially love to receive =)
