Hi, I’m Mel! I’ve always loved reading and started this site partway through my goal of reading through The Guardian’s Top 100 Books of All Time. I’m by no means limiting myself to just these novels though, and along the way I’m picking up anything else that sounds interesting as well.
I grew up in Texas, went to college in Boston, and now live in New York City (where I’m constantly running short on shelf space). Some of my favorite books are East of Eden, Ender’s Game, One Hundred Years of Solitude, and A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. When I’m not reading, you’ll find me cooking, watching Instagram stories, or playing video games.
