Hi – I’m Georgia, and I use dashes a lot.
I’m a failed publishing professional, perpetual intern, low-key scientist, and wannabe writer. I also consider myself an amateur yogi, in that I can do a headstand and am very proud of it. If doing a headstand is the only thing I accomplish all day, I’m okay with that, or at least I’m learning to be.
This blog started as a collection of the Reader’s Reports I wrote on assignment after my interviews for entry-level editorial assistant roles at various houses. Now, it’s where I put down my thoughts of the books I’m currently reading – mostly on how the authors created the characters and actually wrote the work, not so much on plot or content. For me it’s about good writing, characterization, and voice. I can appreciate any genre but am particularly drawn to female authors with a distinct voice and commercial edge, especially dark fiction with a twist. Currently, I’m trying to get into historical fiction hence my to-read section – I loved Kristin Hannah’s Nightingale, but who didn’t?
I also love true crime podcasts – MFM, Serial, Someone Knows Something -, documentaries – The Keepers! -, and any sort of fun fact that’s science, animal, or nutrition related.
Would LOVE recommendations – always looking for agreeable ways of ignoring life.
All-in-all I’m just a twenty-something trying to find the right path while getting lost in stories along the way.
