Argh, I’m so bad at this type of stuff. Okay. First off, thanks for stopping by my blog! And more specifically, this little corner of my blog in which I talk about myself. You can’t see it, but I’m totally giving you a virtual high-five right now.

Hiya! My name is Shannel, I’m twenty-something years of age, and I spent four years studying to be a businesswoman! Fun! I hail from the Philippines, a country that’s too hot and sunny for my liking. Mabuhay! I’m probably the worst writer you will ever meet because I’m too lazy to proofread my posts so you’re practically guaranteed to find typos, grammatical errors, and whatnot. For all my love of reading, I’m terrible at English-ing (see that? I’m even making up my own verbs) because I never liked the technicalities of writing. Fun fact: I actually failed English once. I was that bad at it.

I’ve loved books for as long as I can remember, my “first” being The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, which still remains as one of my favorites to this day.

This blog exists for a multitude of reasons but I’m gonna boil them down to three. The first and most obvious reason is because I love books. Would be kinda weird for me to start a book blog if I didn’t. The second reason is that I love opinions, and reviewing books is basically me giving opinions without having to worry much about what others think. The beauty of book blogging is that you get to choose which blogs to follow and which blogs to ignore. The last reason? I don’t have bookish friends in real life. Somehow, I always end up being the only bookworm in my group of friends and I’m preeeeetty sure they’re sick of me constantly yammering on and on about the books I read. I’m also painfully shy and I find it somewhat easier to communicate online than in real life. So yep. Figured I’d just pour everything into a book blog!

I read mostly YA and Fantasy, but I occasionally take on Contemporary, Sci-Fi, Middle Grade, or Classic. I tend to poke fun at the books I like—even more at the books I dislike, and I’m unapologetic about my opinions.

Hope you enjoy my ramblings! ❤
