I Love Fiction

hello and welcome!

There is nothing I love more than to read books. I have a day job that has nothing to do with books (unfortunately!), but a few of my close friends are editors or agents or work for PR agencies and I have even met a few writers. All of them have told me I should start my own blog. For a couple years I debated it, but for the new year I decided I’d give it a whirl.

Fiction is my bag. Whether it is genre fiction or literary fiction, I love it. Anything from Charlotte Bronte to Anne Rice, Herman Melville to JK Rowling, I am all over the spectrum.


Good advice. My friends tell me that I always give measured, good advice. That’s what my aim is here. I don’t want to color stories in a negative light, but I don’t want to be effusive either. That’s my style. Straight shooter, but I’ll let you know when something touches me in the soul. That’s what I love most about books anyway.

Thank you!

I’m a pretty private person. But I know people will be asking, so here goes: I grew up in Virginia. Went to college in California & NYU. Travelled the world for two years and now live outside New York City. I don’t like to talk too much about myself unless I’m face-to-face with you, so I’ll just say this: I’m 31, I am of mostly of Southwest Asian heritage, I love animals, I’m worried about having a child (I always get asked about children, ugh), my job is important to me, I only drink wine WHILE cooking so I can think straight while reading myself to sleep.

I wish you good will,

    1. Thank you! I’m not used to going live like this, so I’m a bit shaken up. Not sure I can go through with it, but I’m going to try. Fingers crossed.

  3. I love fiction too Janey ☺️
    It was nice to read your honest introduction, and I completely understand about the nerves. I’ve started and stopped blogging many times because of self doubt and being an extremely reserved person. The only reason I’ve managed to stick at it for relatively longer this time is because I’ve been more honest with myself and blogged in a way I feel comfortable doing so. I hope this helps
