About the Girl
Even though I love to read and I am a huge advocate for literacy, I’m studying political science at school. I want to be a lawyer when I’m older and live in New York City but who knows if that’s going to happen? However, I will always work to end illiteracy in the world and a library is one of the best places in any community in my opinion. I’m also a big advocate for diversity in books. I grew up wishing and hoping that there would be a book character who looked like me or shared the same culture as I did.

About the BlogI began this blog on September 9, 2009 and the reason I remember the date is because it was 9/9/09. But anyways, I began this blog, called Reading the Best of the Best, because I was bored and I needed a creative outlet. I had just moved to a small town where I did not know anyone after my 7th grade school year (and lets be real, middle school was the WORST) so I needed something that would take my mind off of everything. I had always loved reading and writing was a passion of mine so combining the two was really interesting.
But creating this blog has to be one of the best decisions I've ever made. Through this blog I have been able to share my thoughts about all things books, life, and whatever else comes to mind. This blog is a place where I want to share my thoughts about the books I read, wether I like them or not, and seeing how readers of the blog like them too.
So there you have it! You get a great in-depth look at the girl behind the blog and why I created this blog to begin with. I hope you learned something new!
