Welcome to Reflections of a Reader

You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.

-C.S. Lewis

Hello lovey people and welcome to my new book blog, Reflections of a Reader! My name is Shannon Burton and I am a full-time high school student currently hailing from Southeastern Michigan (but hoping to travel the world one day). I used to run a blog called The Biblio-Files, however due to some frustrating issues I had to move all my content to a new blog, and here we are!

Ever since I begged my mom to teach me how to read as a little girl, I have constantly had my nose stuck in a book (something that has caused me to distractedly walk into a few walls over the years). In real life I am quite an introverted person, so I am hoping this blog will be an outlet for things I would never dare to say in person, as well as helping to bring me out of my shell a bit. There is no specific genre of books that this blog will focus on, as I have extremely eclectic tastes when it comes to books, however if there is something in particular you would like me to talk about feel free to get in touch with me because I love being recommended new, interesting books!

Here are some little bits and bobs about me, just in case you were wondering. 🙂

-My favorite subjects are English (which is probably obvious) and history.

-In my free time I like to draw, watch old movies, write letters, play the piano, go on bike rides, explore new places, and, of course, read!

-I am a first degree black belt in Choi Kwang Do, and am currently working towards earning my secondphoto (3) degree black belt.

-My absolute favorite book of all time is Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (closely followed up by Outlander by Diana Gabaldon). It is the first true classic I read back in 5th grade and I have a slightly unhealthy obsession with Mr. Darcy (especially when played by Colin Firth, *swoon*).

I think that’s about all you need to know for now! I hope you enjoy my subsequent ramblings about books from this point on!
