So here it begins; my very first book review blog. Well, that’s not completely true. I used to read and review ARC’s for my local independent bookstore several years ago. However, life gets busy, time goes on, and, eventually, you find yourself cramped in a crowded dorm room at ten o’clock at night with nothing to read but a badly written 17th century novel about the London Plague and your Cellular and Molecular Biology textbook, neither of which is really a viable option. This, my friends, is what we call literary rock bottom.
Then a miracle happened. A writer friend of my mothers sent her his book. And I read it. And I loved it. Then, as I was about to post a review online…I had an epiphany.
Dude, I addressed myself, You could do this professionally. You would get to read and review books ALL THE TIME. If you get lucky, people might actually send you books and CARE about your literary opinions!
Wait…hold up, Pessimist Me interjected. Don’t good blogs cost money, and time? What about writing talent? Surely this is not a good idea.
Yep, I’m doing it! Spazzy, Impulsive Me cried, and bought a domain name.
Thus, Who Needs Sleep was born.
