Confessions of a Bibliophile

An aspiring writer and bookstore employee with an incredibly bad book-buying habit... I'll read just about anything (so long as it will appeal to my interests in some way), but my main loves are YA and sci-fi/fantasy. I also like quirky history and science books and will book nerd. A lot. Currently in the process of weeding out my personal library. Find me on Twitter @princess_starr or check out my YA book, Snowfall, on Smashwords: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/240027
The Martian Chronicles - Ray Bradbury What really is a collection of short pieces, tied together for a fifty-span of the colonization of Mars and the near-destruction of the human race. This is probably my favorite Bradbury book, although on this most recent reread, I had a little trouble reconciling some of the attitudes and ideas of what 2030 would have been (circa 1960s). It’s still a very interesting look at the effects of colonization and space exploration, and how humans would react to life on Mars. It’s a fun little book.
