The books I read for pleasure are characterized by character growth, development and world-building; I tend to favor literary fiction, multicultural/transnational fiction & non-fiction, memoir and historical fiction, when reading for fun. When choosing for analysis, I'm drawn to time-travel, soft science-fiction, and magical systems. With regards to non-fiction, I seek out topics related to: psychology, sociology, religion, and the biological sciences.
First and foremost, I am a reader. I am a Jack of all genres and master of none. I can't resist an interesting narrative or an intriguing topic, so I've read widely and regretted nothing.
