The Beer, Books and Blogger

About Me
Kim is a twenty-something who has completed her degree in English and is now blindly navigating the maze we call life. Working full time as a waitress, she is currently in the midst of figuring s**t out and hoping for the best. Finally able to read leisurely without the stresses of completing assigned readings, Kim has thrown herself into the world of fiction and hasn't been found anywhere in reality since.

About the Blog
I started this blog in an effort to fulfill my blogging resolution of the New Year. I have committed myself to writing a review of a book and I figured that it would be a great opportunity to create a blog where I can share the books I have read. I plan on filling this blog with not only reviews, but also different musings in relations to books I may be currently reading or have read in the past.

As for the name, I had originally wanted to name it “Bucks and Books” as a play on “Starbucks” because I spend a great deal of time at any Starbucks location within a reasonable distance. Yay, cheesy alliterations! Alas, some other blogging soul beat me to the punch, and I thought of the next best thing and that was beer. Have you ever read a book while slightly buzzed on beer? I have, it’s most relaxing, I promise you.

Just a quick note here that the above description of my blog was originally written on January 20, 2014. This was during my tenure at university and I am now a fully fledged adult (just kidding, I'm a child in a woman's body) seeking to rehabilitate my lost, creative spirit. I intend to continue this blog just as I had set out to do 3 years ago, and read a ton of books and write about them with a cold brew in hand! To keep with the integrity of the blog's name, breweries or bars/restaurants/pubs with great brews will also be featured on my blog, should I happen upon any hidden gems around the city (which is very likely).

I've kept the original blog description mostly as a reminder to myself that this was once all I had wanted to do. Now that I am very different from who I was all those years ago, it is comforting to know that some things - such as my desire to pick up blogging once more - never change.

    1. No problem, and thanks for the follow, as well! (:

      Haha, I actually get really tired after I have beer, so when I read while slightly buzzed, it was really relaxing for me. It's a challenge in itself, let me know how that goes, haha!
