Life is crazy. And it’s great. I like it that way, but craziness is a little hard to summarize in a blog – not to mention a title. To introduce myself:
I love the forests and live in a desert
I play the harp and listen to heavy beat music
I photograph sunsets and flowers and draw fantastical beasts
I never had a childhood, but never grew up
I’m a devout Latter-day Saint who thrills in the macabre
I’m a fiction writer, writing my honest thoughts
I am C. Rae D’Arc
Reviewing books isn’t always easy, especially when you’re as picky as I am. Let me explain why;
I’m a university graduate with my Bachelors in English which means I’ve studied, analyzed, and reported on novels and historical texts. These reports have measured anywhere between a paragraph to 25-page essays.
I’m also occupationally involved in every stage of a book’s process. As a writer, editor, retailer, reader, and reviewer, I currently have three part-time jobs…. Thankfully, one of those actually pays me.
This past year, I read an average 1,000 pages a month (just in my free time). I use four different methods of reading (which allows me to read four books at once), including: paper/hardback, audible, kindle, and aloud with my husband.
I have posted my reviews on WordPress, Amazon, Goodreads, DeviantArt, Facebook, and Google+. This blog on WordPress is my primary site, however, so if you have comments, questions, or requests please post them here.
