My name is Carrie Slager and I am a young woman living in rural Saskatchewan. I have a passion for reading and writing, which is why I started my blog. I want to help people out by writing reviews about both old and new novels in the YA genre, although I’ll occasionally review books that teens and adults may read. When it comes to reading, my interests are diverse and I’ll give most any genre/book/author a try.
My hobbies include reading up on ancient Egypt, listening to the History of Rome podcast (which I highly recommend, even if you’re not a big history fan), reading, writing, spending time with friends, volleyball, badminton, soccer and modern dance. Of course, between all these things, I update this blog daily.
Here are some random/sort of interesting facts about me:
- I received my PADI scuba diving certification at the age of 13, despite a severe sinus infection that made diving excruciatingly painful. The tank, weights and BCD probably added up to more than half my body weight at the time.
- On an average Saturday evening, there is an 80% chance you would find me watching an opera or reading.
- I have climbed 3 different Mayan pyramids in 2 different countries.
- Over the past 3 years, I’ve kept track of how many books I’ve read and I average about 200 books per year.
Obviously, this list is not nearly as awesome as most peoples’.
