If you’re reading this, you’re probably curious about how my blog got started. Well, this page is for you.
I’ve been drawn towards books for as long as I can remember. I started reading when I was three. When I was ten I started reading a two thousand page collection of Amy Carmichael’s writings. That collection sparked my love for nonfiction and autobiographies in particular.
When I was twelve, I read Victor Hugo’s Les Miserables. I was immediately captivated by his writing style and by the time I had finished the seven hundred page book, he had dramatically changed the way I look at books. Hugo has by far made the most impact on my writing life—and life in general.
After reading Les Miserables, I became interested in his other books, as well as Charles Dickens. That’s when I discovered my love for classics, which was a major shifting point in the kind of books I read today.
All that to say, books are a big part of my life. The Reason by Lacey Sturm, It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way by Lysa Terkeurst, Frankenstein by Mary Shelley and Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow are some other books that have made a huge impact on me.
Because reading is such a big part of my life, it made sense to start a blog dedicated to books. That’s how Rambling Reviews was born! On this blog you’ll read my honest reviews of books I’ve read. Every now and then I’ll post a life update or some of my own writings.
I read a strange variety of books (mostly classics, admittedly) and my hopes are that everyone will be able to find a book or genre that they love! But more importantly, I hope to show that everyone is different and unique—and that’s okay! No one will be judged for liking or disliking a book. ❤
And hey, maybe you’ll find some new books to put on your TBR list!
