Welcome to the inaugural post of A World for the Reading, a way for me to vent my feelings about the books I read and hopefully point people in the direction of the literature and authors I really love. This blog's title is paraphrased from a quote from Betty Smith's A Tree Grows in Brooklyn:

"The world was hers for the reading."

Simple, yet it gets the point across. This book had always held sentimental value for me as I was selected for AP English many years ago based off an essay describing what it meant to me. Plus  the url was available, score!

What you can expect to see here in the future are reviews of a wide variety of books, both fiction and non-fiction, YA and the kind of lit that can be described as Lit-ER-A-chUre while a monocle is popped.

I generally read all the things, but my main preferences for YA are historical and fantasy, while my taste for literary fiction tends towards voices and concepts I feel are unique. No navel gazing treatises on the horrors of suburbia for this book nerd I'm afraid. Look for a fancier set up and possibly some means and giveaways as this shameful Luddite figures things out.
