My name is KJ/Kerry-Jean.
I’m a 24 year old trying to make it in the exciting world of teaching high school history. Due to the complete lack of available education jobs right now, I’m currently stuck working as a substitute teacher. The only highlight of this situation is that I had ample time to complete my Master’s Degree in History.
Reading has always been a passion of mine. What started as an interest in classic mythology and fairy tales as a kid has now blossomed into a fairly substantial obsession with building up my personal library. I don’t read for escapism, but rather to push my mind to new limits, so I’ll admit to being a bit of snob when it comes to literature. I will always read a book before criticizing it, but I have difficulty taking some of my friends seriously when they gush over the newest romances or vampire trends.
This blog is my love note to literature. I use it to explore many different genres at once, discuss some of my favorite authors, and highlight books that I feel deserve more credit from the general audience. If you ever have suggestions or are looking for recommendations, I’m all ears.
Welcome! I’m so happy to know that other people share my love of one star book reviews.
I’ve been reading through all your suggestions for books, plays and essaies that you’d like to see featured in Horrible Book Reviews next. Keep them coming! I churn out these monstrosities as fast as I can (which means that I try to post one book per day). If I haven’t gotten to your “favorite” book yet, let me know and I’ll add it to my list.
Don’t forget that I have an entire tag dedicated to Horrible Book Reviews. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll want to punch people. It’s a rocking good time!
