To see if we can get along as readers, know this: I have a soft spot for great science fiction, which is a rare thing to come by, and great graphic novels, even harder to find. My favorite author is the one and only Arthur C. Clarke.
I do not read YA books, and I do not understand why anyone older than 16 reads them. Why drink watered-down wine of the house when you can have any glass of the best wines ever made?
I crave electro-shock-inducing, clever reads that widen my horizons whether through fiction or non-fiction. When it comes to fiction, I prefer stories that are original, surprising, and warm, emotionally rich. I read mostly in English, but I also read many books in Italian, and I generally review those in Italian.
