Now that I have established a few posts on my blog I would like to take a minute to tell you who I am. I know that I have a bio page but this is my opportunity to really tell you what I’m about.
My name is Savannah, I grew up on the Siletz reservation in Oregon and I am an enrolled tribal member. I spent the last five years studying at Oregon State University and obtained my BA in English and Writing. My passion for reviewing actually began during my last term at OSU. I took a class by a professor named David Biespiel, he was a member of the National Book Critics Circle and a super cool guy. In that class we learned the ins and outs of reviewing. I think I can honestly say he was my favorite professor and he is the reason I decided to start trying to seriously review books.
I am also an aspiring writer. The genres I prefer to write in are horror, young adult, and fantasy. I try to predominantly review in those genres because I find them to be the most interesting and entertaining, but I have no issue branching out if something seems worthwhile. My all-time favorite book series is The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. Tolkien really inspired me to write, I love his lyrical descriptions and the depth he created in the Middle Earth world.
I get most of my reviewing content from NetGalley, I love NetGalley as a resource. If you’re a reviewer looking to get ARC’s and you don’t already know about NetGalley I strongly suggest you sign up on their website. You will be able to access a lot of awesome content for your site.
In my last year at OSU my boyfriend, Richard, and I welcomed a son into our life. His name is Finn after Finn the Human from Adventure Time. He is sooooooo cute and sweet, he’s actually cuddled up to me sleeping right now. I will probably talk about him from time to time because he’s cool as hell. Aside from our son, we have two fur babies named Stark and Daenerys, yes, like Game of Thrones. Another favorite of mine. I will probably talk about them too because they are funny and get up to a lot of shenanigans.
I do have hobbies other than reading and writing. I am an avid crocheter and I enjoy painting. I love being outside so I try and go camping every summer, and I go to the river a lot on my free time. There is honestly nothing more relaxing than a good book and the bubbling of the river in the background.
I hope that this post has been interesting and I look forward to interacting with you all. Thank you for giving me a follow and checking out my content.
