As Leo mentions below in the post, we’ve been planning on him joining the team for a really long time… so if you think I’m bad with procrastinating, well, then there’s Leo : P Leo is one of my friends from high school and college, and Caylin and I are super excited to welcome him onto the blog!
One thing I’ve been thinking about lately is why reading is so important, and I think I’ve come somewhat to a conclusion that the importance of reading is all the different voices. Authors and characters can come from any background and have any variety of experiences, and all the
goodimportant characters are those that teach you something or give you something to aspire to. In a post that will appear later this month, I’ll talk more in depth about how significant different voices, or perspectives, are in literature and in the discussion that surrounds it.
Therefore, my goal is to include as many voices on the blog as I possibly can because reading, while solitary in the action of it in most cases, is not a solitary experience. It should be social. It should create empathy and understanding. It should generate discussions and nourish relationships. So go ahead and read on below to learn more about Leo!
I’m thrilled to have Leo’s sassy, animated voice contributing to Strung out on Books!
Guten Tag! I’m uber excited to start doing stuff on this blog. I was actually supposed to do this a while back haha! (10 points if you remember the post where I was referenced.) Now I’m finally getting into this shturf.
I’m thrilled to write my opinion on books that I read for the public to view. Aside from some of the (lame) books I’m required to read for my classes, I’ve recently gotten into a book binge. All I want to do is read them! I literally bought like 25+ books from thriftbooks because I wanted to read so badly! All the books!!!
Currently I’m trying to read the Twilight series, along with the Fifty Shades series as well. There’s a few other non-series books thrown in there too! I also really enjoy reading manga, so who knows if a review will come from that. Fruits Basket is the manga I’m reading at the moment. I’m trying really hard to divide my time for each book, but it’s proving difficult. I shall persevere though!
I might want to try incorporate music into any posts I make in the future because it plays such a huge role in my life. (Currently listening to Beyoncé’s self-titled album as I’m writing this. So much sex!!!! I love it! She’s so flawless I can’t even handle it.) We’ll see how that pans out. If it actually happens, expect Beyoncé. Lots and lots of Beyoncé.
I can’t wait to share my thoughts with you guys! I’m thinking that I might try to start each post I do with a hello in a different language. Language is such a unique tool that we’ve been given. I’ve always wanted to learn different languages. (It all starts with hello’s, right?) Also I just think it will be fun 😅 After writing this, I’ve realized I didn’t start my Twilight review that way, so all future (hopefully) posts will have them. See you around, you beautiful pussy willows! 😉
