This blog was started in July 2012, so I've been in the book blogging scene for a little while now, and have been loving EVERY second of it! Fellow bloggers and authors have been nothing but welcoming and helpful, and I'm thankful everyday for the opportunities that are presented to me, may it be an exciting new book to be reviewed, or a chance to recommend books loves of my own to others! I am beyond ecstatic to continue my book-blogging journey with you all, but first, here's a little bit more about the face, and person behind this blog:
My name is Reeka, and I currently reside in Ontario, Canada. I've been a fan of fiction since the days of The Babysitter's Club and Sweet Valley High. My school and local libraries were my haven, my favourite place to be, and, although I don't have the time to spend hours there anymore, they still are and always will be. I am a former employee of Indigo Books (the largest book store chain in Canada), which only deepened my love for the written word, and made it that much easier to indulge in my passion. Working allowed me to do what I can't always do with my family and friends: share my passion and excitement about books! It was deliriously amazing to meet people who share the same love for books as I do-veteran readers, old and young, and tiny readers who have only just discovered how books can make them feel. Growing up, I read pretty much any and everything I can get my hands on, but nowadays, my tastes and preferences have been shaped and narrowed to include mostly Speculative Adult and YA Fiction. I hope to one day branch off into genres that mostly intimidate me, or don't strike me as entertaining upon first glance. Some of the genres I hope to tackle soon are: Biography, Well-Being, and History/Politics-I want to be well rounded in my book knowledge. I'm always, always open to suggestions or recommendations, so please don't hesitate to email, comment, or tweet me! About the blog: Though I'm mostly reading YA fiction at the moment, this blog will consist of both Adult Fiction and YA Fiction reviews, news and interviews (ha! rhyme). I plan to be as dedicated and consistent as humanly possible, though as many bloggers will probably tell me, life tends to get in the way sometimes. I have been blogging on BoundbyWords for over 2 years now, and am so glad I made the decision to start this amazing adventure. I have been extremely blessed and humbled by everything that has come my way since I began, and I feel like I've only scratched the surface of what's to come. If you follow BoundbyWords, are thinking of following, or are even just stopping by, thank you, thank you, THANK you! I hope you enjoy what you find =).
