Welcome to The Book Lovers' Nest!

I'm Allison.

I love good books, good food, and good friends.  And Seinfeld.

I'm a (recovering) English major who still enjoys the simple pleasure of reading a good book.  Or a bad book.  Dystopian young adult fiction is my weakness.  Though I've probably read more nineteenth century literature than you.

As an English major himself, my husband Jordan shares my love of literature and is far too enabling of my desire to collect all of the books.  While I'm old fashioned and prefer hard and paperbacks, he has fully embraced the ebook and audiobook trend.  He tends to favor sci-fi and fantasy detective fiction.

For the past few years, we've been building our home, one book at a time.  We have more books than we can count and a real library, complete with a wingback chair.  For us literary nerds, it doesn't get much better than that.

We also have two adorable adopted cats named Josie (after Josie Pye in Anne of Green Gables) and Diggory (after Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire).  While they aren't reading quite yet, they love exploring and hiding in our bookshelves.  They fit right in with their English major parents.

Having been out of English literature programs for over three years, I still can't shake the need to discuss any book that I read, whether good or bad, which is primarily what you'll find here.  On occasion, I will also discuss movies, television shows, music, and any other random topics that strike my fancy.  It may not always be interesting or good, but it will usually be passionate and opinionated.

And just because it seems rude to say so much about myself without asking about you, I'll end with a question:  What is the most recent book that you read, and would you recommend it to someone else?

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope that you enjoy your stay!
