My name is Heather and I am a high school IB DP/AP English teacher, poet, writer, freelance editor, and book blogger. For information about my writing, please visit my “Writing” page.
As far as books go, I love YA, NA, fantasy, contemporary adult fiction, literary fiction, and historical fiction, and can even, at times, be coaxed into reading nonfiction. I believe reading all types of books is an important component of a well-rounded education and, more importantly, a well-rounded human being. Reading helps people develop empathy for others, and it improves brain function. What more could a person ask for?
After all, it is a truth universally acknowledged that books are awesome. I love books. A lot of people I follow on Twitter love books. My whole family loves books. Books are awesome. Wait…did I say that already?
I’ve loved reading since I was a kid. My mom read to me, and as soon as I was able, I read everything I could get my hands on. Labels, directions, warnings, but most of all, books. I even made it through the traumatizing experience of reading Flowers in the Attic as a young teenager and STILL wanted to read books. Thank goodness for YA so teens of today don’t have to be traumatized like I was.
