Jia

Reading, to me, is as close to an addiction as one can come without crossing the line… completely. I read a lot, and many different genres. For me, stories have to be realistic and logical, within the perimeter set up by the author.
I don’t care for unnecessary angst and poorly researched facts or first person perspective in stories as most often I feel like I’m being told the story over a cup of coffee in that case. It’s even worse if the story has multiple first person point of views it changes between.
I’d love to hear if my reviews helped you, so feel free to comment :)
