About

My name is Cleo, otherwise known here on WordPress as The Literary Flaneur. As you might infer from the username, I love to read. I like most kinds of fiction: MG on occasion, smart YA, adult fiction, and classic fiction. Most genres too: historical, realistic, fantasy, science fiction. I just can’t stand straight romance. Books with some romance are okay, but when that’ s the center of the story, I don’t like it.

Anyway, I love Jane Austen, F. Scott Fitzgerald, John Green, and a whole bunch of other authors.  I write book reviews at http://www.novareviews.blogspot.com, and have a Goodreads account too.

Let’s see, what else? I’m a teenage girl (although that’s not generally how I think of myself). I have so many undefined yearnings (please don’t turn this into something dirty because it’s really not) for…well, something undefined, but I suppose that’s natural for the adolescent with multiple brain cells (I’m beginning to think there aren’t enough of us). I used to go to a really great middle school, but now I have entered the realm of public high school, and it’s quite a shock. Hoping to get to college as soon as possible. I used to want to be a farmer (when I was about five), and then I wanted to write fiction, and now I don’t know really. Being a travel journalist might be interesting; I’m also interested in animal behavior, specifically birds because they’re somewhat of an under-researched field. I just want to do all the things! I love history and science and music and literature and math, and want to do something that combines all of them. And New York. New York is a key ingredient. If you’re still reading this, thanks. I hope you enjoy the blog. Follow if you feel so inclined.

Besides books, I love hanging out with my friends, doing things on the Internet, eating chocolate (though not too much), playing with my cat, and traveling. My Blogger profile interest tags are: Cats, books, classical music, viola, violin, animals, nature, writing, traveling, mushrooms, birds, animal behavior, journalism, literature, art, history, music theory, good food, chocolate, fashion, New York City, blogging, politics, atheism, current events. That should give some sense of who I am, although really, labels don’t tell you anything.

Hope you enjoy the blog! I love getting comments.
