About Me

Hello, and welcome to my blog, Here Be Bookwyrms!  My name is Colleen, and if you want to know a little something about me, I am a 30-something spinster and future Cat Lady.  I live in Texas, where the sunlight is my ultimate frenemy. I have a BA in Anthropology with minors in Linguistics and Criminal Justice, and am pursuing a graduate certificate in Forensic Death Investigation.  When I'm not reading, I also enjoy running, gaming, and collecting My Little Pony (if you're interested, you can check out my collection catalog, The Rainbow Stable).  I am a Ravenclaw (although the original Pottermore sorted me almost 50/50 with Slytherin, and I do identify with their qualities as well, so I consider that my secondary house).  I am also Horde, Team Mystic, Runner 5, and a Browncoat.

I grew up with a great love of books; before I could read myself, I was always wanting people to read to me, and I generally preferred a book or a My Little Pony as a treat when my parents let my brother and I pick something out.  I enjoy books from all genres, including non-fiction topics, but I have a particular love for fantasy and mystery/thriller novels.  

I mainly started this blog for myself, to keep track of what I read and what my thoughts were on each title - but I was (and still am) also excited about the prospect of sharing what I've read with others, and I will accept titles for review. If you're an author or a publisher, and you have review copies of a book you think might be a good fit for this blog, please feel free to contact me by email at here.be.bookwyrms@gmail.com.

I hope you enjoy my blog, and I hope that regardless of your own taste in books, you will find something you like!  I encourage anyone to please comment or drop me an email if you have any tips, recommendations, comments, questions, or just want to say hi!
