My name is Daniel and I am a literary nerd. I am 22 and currently studying English at school. Here you will find poetry, quotations I find excellent, book reviews, and other book-related things. This isn't my primary tumblr, which means that you will never be able to see me following you or liking something. That would be under my personal tumblr, huckleberry-finn.
2012 was a great year of reading for me. I discovered many new favorites. I read books that have impressed me, stunned me, and have meant more to me than I could have ever imagined.
I read 46 books this year, which is more than last year but less than I wanted to accomplish. I am still proud, because I have been able to explore areas and genres completely new to me, such as poetry. I read more Shakespeare than ever before, and I am slowly becoming an expert on Edward Gorey and evil children.
You can see the full list here on my Goodreads. (Feel free to add me!)
The books I’ve chose to represent this post and this year are Macdonald Harris’s Mortal Leap, Édouard Levé’s Suicide, Maggie Nelson’s Bluets, and Anna Kavan’s Ice. I highly recommend them all.
