I’m Siena, the person behind this blog. I love to read (obviously), and I started this blog to talk about books with others.
My favorite genres are nonfiction, historical fiction, and classics. I tend to mostly stay within those genres so you’ll be seeing a lot about them here. I’m a history buff at heart, and so I read a lot of historical nonfiction and fiction. I’m not particularly picky about specific time periods, I’ll read anything as long as it’s interesting and well-written.
Besides reading and blogging, I also love to write, I journal and try and write fiction. I also enjoy listening to music, as well as traveling, and I’m always trying to check off my never-ending bucket list of places I want to visit.
My favorite books are (in no particular order):
- Villette by Charlotte Brontë
- Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë
- The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
- Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky
- Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
- The Man in the Iron Mask by Alexandre Dumas
- Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
