Hi! I’m Shanti. I’m a eighteen year old student who currently goes to uni in New Zealand. I love to read, obviously, but I also play music (viola/piano), go running, craft (knitting! Paper!), writing for fun (so much angst), cooking, travelling, and spending time with my lovely family. Getting me to go outside without a book (let alone 2 or 3) is almost hard as getting me to leave historical places. I talk too fast, don’t eat meat, write articles (I’m a student journalist), spontaneously cartwheel, wear skirts and plaited pigtails,and make literary references that only I understand.
I come from New Zealand and India. I’m perpetually busy (and mostly happy about it). I believe in accepting chaos, chasing kindness, finding forgiveness, and redemption of many forms.
Some of my favourite books are: The Boy Most Likely To, The True Meaning of Smekday, Code Name Verity, A Sense of Style, The End of Night, and The Wrath and the Dawn
Some of my favourite series are: The Lunar Chronicles, The Old Kingdom Chronicles, Protector of the Small, Chanda’s Secrets, The Starbound Trilogy, The Spinster Club, Seraphina, and The Montmaray Journals.
Some of my favourite authors are: Laini Taylor, Jenn Marie Thorne, Beth Revis, Tamora Pierce, and Rhiannon Thomas.
(but the list never really ends)
Hi, I’m Shar! I’m 18 and currently a first year science student in New Zealand (I’m studying Ecology and minoring in computer science– if either of those things interest you please talk to me about them). I love outdoor adventures, playing music (flute and piano mostly), doing things with my friends, watching fun/funny movies, travelling, animals, and most importantly, reading. (although if you want to find out more about what I do when I’m not reading, check out our other blog) . Below are some pictures of me, but 2 of them are from when I was 15 and now I’m probably less skinny tbh.
My reading tastes are evolving with me. This blog mostly focuses on young adult books, which I read a lot of. Some of my favourite YA books are The Book Thief, the Lunar Chronicles, Radio Silence, and The Upside of Unrequited. I also really enjoy classics (some I like include Fahrenheit 451, Pride and Prejudice, and some that are currently eluding me) and non-fiction of the science variety. When I’m stressed or busy, though, I always turn to YA :).
