Once Upon a Time There Was Me

Hello readers!

I'm Athira Dominic, a fellow avid reader. I'm from Texas and I go to Hebron High School. As a reader, I indulge in the various genres of fantasy, mystery, romance, dystopian, and science fiction. I've been reading ever since I was able to read. I still remember the pleasant and peaceful days in Kindergarten and 1st Grade where I would drag my parents to the library and check out around 40 books each week. I would bring them home and lay them out on my couch, ready to start my day of nonstop pleasure reading. In elementary school, I happily read through the whole Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan,The Babysitter's Club, the Nancy Drew Mystery Stories, and Nancy Drew and the Clue Crew (the mysteries of an elementary school Nancy Drew). As I venture out into delicious novels to try, I'm going to set the goal of reading at least 15 books by the end of this school year. I promise to myself that I will try my very best to read at least 2…

We Aren't Far From Being Savages

Hello everyone! As usual, I've been keeping up with my reading. I've read at least 30-45 minutes outside of class for leisure.

It was a recommended title on the AP book list and I had heard many good things about it from my friends, so I decided that I might as well read it now. 
Lord of the Fliesis one of those novels that makes you take a step back and get a good look at humanity today. This novel really opened my eyes to the chaos and violence that we, as humans, create on a daily basis. This novel takes place on an unknown island where a group of boys is stranded. These boys are then seen trying to adapt to their new life on the island, hoping to eventually be rescued. As the boys continue to live and find their way on the island, some of them start hearing the voice of the Lord of the Flies (which is a symboliz…

A Magical Ending To a Time-Ticking Series

Recently, I've been going through books so fast because of my desire to read every book in a series right after one another. When I get caught up in a series, there is no stopping me from reading and reading until I have completely finished it and ranted about it to my friends. I've been reading about 30 minutes per day now because of my profound interest in them. In that time I read about 50 pages. I've soared through all the books so fast, eager to know more and more about the story. Books that belong to a series only take me about three or four days to finish because of my interest in them.
Just a week ago, I readThe Clockwork Princessby Cassandra Clare, the third and last novel in the Infernal Devices series. It is the concluding novel in the well-known series about a race of people called Shadowhunters, who are humans with the blood of angels. These humans have the ability to destroy demons that roam around in the mundane (human) world. It surrounds the life of a girl …
