Required Reading is a book review blog dedicated to expanding the horizons of college students everywhere by getting them to read a book that wasn’t assigned for class. I’ve heard far too many times, “oh, I haven’t read a book since high school.” It’s time for that to change. I’m hoping my book reviews are entertaining and helpful enough to get you to quit binge-watching Orange Is The New Black and pick up a book, or two, or three.
Who am I? That’s a secret I’ll never tell (Gossip Girl, anyone?). Kidding. Sort of. I’m a senior in college trying to expand my horizons by starting a book blog, something my mom would probably think is a great idea if she actually knew about it. I’m not a writer, I’m not majoring in anything writing-related, and I really have no idea what I’m doing. I just have a love for books and a need to share it. I’m hoping this blog forces me out of my comfort zone a little bit and gets me to read things I normally wouldn’t, and gets you to read things you normally wouldn’t, too. We’ll see how it goes, and here’s hoping it isn’t a total failure!
