I’ve been wanting to start my own blog since a *very* long time ago. Though, the fact that I’m quite sure there is nothing interesting in my life to be blogged about, I cast that thought away without thinking deeply onto it. However, lately I’ve came across quite a few book blogs that I like A LOT and the thoughts came right in once again. But this time, it took me quite awhile to think about it and finally decide that I got nothing to lose and many more things to gain. Hence, here it is – my very own blog – which will incorporate the stories about books I read, my boring life in general and my bit-more-interesting life as a grad student.
I’m writing here as Shy because it is actually an abbreviation of my name at birth. Besides, I am literally a very shy person (Not kidding about that!). I believe that I am TOO far from being a perfect person. Therefore, I welcome any criticism that somewhat can make myself a better person and also improve myself in anything that I’m lacking of. Speaking of interests, music is the other thing that I love besides reading. I also love going out for a movie and am a proud aunt for a cat named Duke, which I will introduce on this blog one day.
Last but not least, I would like to thank those book blogs out there that inspired me to start a page of my own (Special thanks to The Book Muncher and J. Kaye’s Book Blog as those are the first 2 book blogs that I read). I remember a quote that I heard when watching Meet Joe Black for the 100th times few hours ago – “Who knows... Lightning could strike!”. I feel like I’ve been struck and I’m definitely happy about it.
