All throughout my life, I have been fascinated by stories. It started with my father reading Greek mythology and my mother reading Harry Potter as bedtime stories and continues today as I look for films, music, and of course literature that can add to my ever growing collection. Over the years, I have spent a fair amount of time discussing these stories with friends, family, colleagues, and anyone else whose ears I can grab onto. I adore being able to sit down and dissect a story with someone so I thought, “Why not expand your reach? On the Internet, you can talk to almost anyone!”
My purpose for this blog is to share my analyses and opinions on various works with any individuals who enjoy a good story as much as I do. I may be a bit biased towards some genres (expect to see way more sci-fi and fantasy on here than romance), but whatever I review will largely depend on my mood and whatever is available. If you see something and think, “This isn’t for me,” I encourage you to stick around for what’s next or to even recommend a book to me. I am always eager to put something new on my “To Read” list.
The rating system on Literature is Life should be taken with a grain of salt. I tend to rate books for what they are, not on an overall universal scale. If you see a Star Wars book rated 5 stars, that means it is 5 stars for a Star Wars book. It does not mean you should be comparing it to To Kill A Mockingbird or Of Mice and Men.
Review Requests: I do accept review requests as time permits. Unfortunately, I do not own an e-reader (I love paper books too much) and am unable to accept requests only available in that format. Presently my review schedule is full through the end of February.
