“Reading was my escape and my comfort, my consolation, my stimulant of choice: reading for the pure pleasure of it, for the beautiful stillness that surrounds you when you hear an author’s words reverberating in your head.”
― Paul Auster, The Brooklyn Follies.

You can call me Jess or as I sometimes like to accidentally spell my name when I’m in a rush, Jesus (but don’t actually call me that). I’m a 26 year old obsessive reader working in the publishing industry that spends far too much time getting emotionally destroyed by fictional characters. Unfortunately, I’m not a superhero. I’m a Gryffindor with an INTJ personality. The genres I like to frequently read include: YA Fantasy, Dark Romance, and Crime/Thrillers. Throw some classics in for extra measure (especially if they’re from the Victorian/Romanticism era).
My ultimate goal in life is to become a published author. I’ve got four unfinished manuscripts so I’ll get back to you when I actually manage to finish one. You’ll either see me writing about murder or writing about magic, or a mix of both.
