Hi there and welcome to my blog, a place where literature and science collides.
Often, these two disciplines have been kept apart; people who are interested in science can not possibly appreciate literary genius, and people who adore books don’t know anything about the intricacies of science. My whole life, however, I’ve been fascinated by science and obsessed with literature. I never understood why these two facets of life couldn’t be joined together in perfect matrimony. So, I decided to put a blog together that encompasses both my interests in an entertaining and (hopefully) educational way.
On the Curious Creatures page you will find a series of posts about some of the weird and wonderful animals that roam our planet. I love learning about the bizarre members of the animal kingdom, and I hope these posts will open your eyes to some of the crazy creatures living right under our noses.
The Science page contains articles about new scientific discoveries and debates. What new medical advances has mankind made recently? Why do we never really hear about women in science?
On the Literature page you will be able to read some of my short stories as well as articles surrounding the literary discipline. Why is Shakespeare such a cultural phenomenon? Is young adult fiction worth reading?
The Book Reviews page contains (yes, you guessed it) book reviews of the latest books I’ve read. I include both a literary angle by discussing for example genre, form, and narrative, as well as my personal opinion.
If you’re interested in reading more book reviews and literary musings, feel free to take a look at my old blog, Me, My Books, and I.
All that’s left to say is: read your heart out and enjoy!
