Reader, reviewer, introvert, dreamer, passionate - these are the words that summarize me

Overview

I am a voracious reader. I read for fun but write reviews about them with all seriousness. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. Being a complete introvert, meeting new people and interacting comes with effort to me. But books have always been my best of friends. I also blog on general topics
