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
  • The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
  • Paula by Isabel Allende
  • The Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker
  • Red Comet: The Short Life and Blazing Art of Sylvia Plath by Heather Clark
  • A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith
