Hello people of the internet!

Welcome to my humble blog: “anovelgirl: the general musings of a bookworm.” See what I did there? anovelgirl . . . like as in a novel?!?!  *Ahem*, anyways, onto the introduction.

So, does the internet need another blog?  No.  Will anyone read this?  Probably not.  But that’s not why I’m writing it. Here’s why:

1. I communicate best by writing (though I would never consider myself a writer). The process of writing helps me to organize my thoughts and thoroughly flesh out my ideas.  To quote Flannery O’Connor, “I write because I don’t know what I think until I read what I say.”

2. I’d like a place to rant and rave if I want and I try to avoid that on social media.  I don’t always appreciate being forced to read other’s strongly worded opinions on my newsfeed, so I try to avoid doing it myself as much as possible. But no one is forcing you to read my blog, so you’ve been forewarned!

3. I love to read (in case you haven’t guessed already) and want a place to write book reviews.

So, random internet user/stalker/friend that I’ve invited, welcome!  Read, comment, discuss!  Don’t feed the trolls!* Frequency of posting: whenever I feel like it.  Subjects of posts: whatever I feel like writing about, although my main passions involve books, science and God.

Looking forward to meeting you!


*but seriously.  Be kind and considerate.  Feel free to disagree and debate all you like, but if you are hateful, you will be deleted.  Also, please do not use profanity and/or hate speech.  Yes, I am a Christian (of the evangelical bent), but you do not have to agree with me in order for us to have a constructive dialogue.
