My name's Rachel Louise Atkin and this is my blog. I'm completely obsessed with books and wanted somewhere to share this with others, so this blog is where I'll be posting my thoughts and feelings about the literature I read. You will also find extracts from my fiction and poetry that I enjoy doing in my spare time, as well as musings on the travels I've had around the UK and rest of the world.
I attend York St John University, and am currently studying for a bachelors degree in English Literature. My other interests are in religion, philosophy, history and art, especially Buddhism, Christianity, the Plantagenets, Surrealism, modernism, and politics.
The books that have inspired me include The Catcher in the Rye, A Clockwork Orange, American Psycho, Moby Dick, On Writing, The Secret History, Waiting for Godot, Stoner, and many others.
All of my reviews reflect my own opinions and not the opinions of the institutions I'm associated with. I try my best to be honest, fair and inoffensive when writing my reviews but please to respect that I have my own opinions which may clash or confirm with yours.
