I make no secret about how much of a privilege I feel about being a book reviewer for The Nerdy Girl Express. I am constantly amazed by the incredible writing talent and the skill it takes to translate the seeds of one’s imagination into a book that stirs the hearts of readers.

Because of your example, I have joined your ranks by publishing my own poetry books. I am now a published author too because you set the path of my journey. I can’t thank you enough.
I have a confession to make: I am addicted to writing book reviews. I am seduced by the imaginary world created by authors. My body craves the drugs of well-written characters and plots.
