I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! -- When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.
― Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice
About Me

Hello! My name is Alex. I am a stay at home mother of a little girl. Before she was born I was a chemist. I have a Bachelors in Science from the University of Michigan. I traveled a little. I visited Malta and Japan and many places in the States. I am athletic (or was), nerdy (love science and math), and I have an imagination.

Since being home I have been restless, and I tend to wander my one hallway. I am trying to find my mark. I am trying to figure out how to best use my qualities. Well, I use to workout a lot, but seeing how much I love to eat caused some conflict. I love to cook new, and exciting things when I have time. I love to bake cakes, pies, and cookies. It brings a lot of creativitiy out of me. I teach my daughter a lot of subjects, and we like do some science experiments. I didn't think this one would last, but it sure has captivated me and it is reading. I love to read. 

​This blog will be dedicated to the books I will be reading. I love reading and I hope that you all do too. I usually ready fantasies, historical fiction, or classic novels, but I am more than willing to try any type of book. Sometimes you just need a good cry or YA. My rating system is sporatic, but I always give a reason for the rating. I hope everyone enjoys!
