Welcome to the blog!

My new blog is officially up and running! (Oh, god, what have I done?)

My goal is to log and review each book and movie I read and watch for the first time (emphasis on try, given my sketch reviewing history that most people are blessedly unfamiliar with). I have a few book and movie reviews in the works; I’m going to finish those up as soon as possible so I can post them.

I’ll try to keep reviews as coherent as possible and focus more on dissecting the plot and character dynamics. I write more emotional reviews for books on my Goodreads, but nothing really for movies.

In terms of books, I’m generally partial to the young adult genre, especially paranormal romance and urban fantasy. I don’t have a lot of experience with contemporary young adult books, but I’m reading more books in that genre. I also really love ‘classic’ literature. I actually like pretty much anything, as long as the characters are written well and there are no frivolous plot devices or issues left ignored.

I am a huge fan of visually appealing films (who isn’t?), and movie scores are really important to me. Also character portrayals.

And of course, I am always open to recommendations in the comments.

I think that’s about it, introduction-wise. Let’s see how this goes.
