About

Girl Who Reads was established in 2011 to provide readers an online source for book reviews and author news. Our main purpose is to help readers discover their next great read and a new favorite author. A reader will find reviews for children, teens, and adults from a wide range of genres, including the occasional non-fiction book. The only thing better than reading a book is talking about the books we read. We hope readers will join in the discussion by leaving comments.

Chris, features writer. Raised between the soaring peaks of the Swiss Alps and the dark industrialism of northern England, beauty and darkness have been twin influences on Chris' creativity since his youth. Throughout his life he has expressed this through music, art, and literature, delving deep into the darkest parts of human nature, and finding the elegance therein. These themes are central to his current literary project, The Redemption of ErĂ¢th. A dark epic fantasy, it is a tale of the bitter struggle against darkness and despair, and an acknowledgment that there are some things the mind cannot overcome. Written from a depth of personal experience, Chris' words are touching and powerful, the hallmark of someone who has walked alone through the night, and welcomes the final darkness of the soul. However, for now, he lives in New Jersey with his wife and eleven-year-old son. You can also find him at http://satiswrites.com. Read Chris's articles.

  1. I can't say "cheese" because I'm lactose-intolerant. However I can say "read" and that makes a person smile!

  3. Interesting, Donna. I also got as far as ABD but ran out of gas (figuratively). I agree --the learning was much more fun than the stress of doctoral level angst. Happens a lot. Glad I found your blog.
