Since young, I have been an avid reader. You name it, I read it.
It got to the point that my records for a reading program in school was hotly refuted by my teacher, until I told her to point out a title and author, I will there and then summarise the story for here. That put paid to her suspicions of me faking the records.
Gradually, as I progressed through the school system, I would like to say my reading habits grew. But alas! As homework and schoolwork piled up, the habit of reading became an escapism realm for me.
I also narrowed down my preferences. At first, I read everything and anything; then I gradually distanced myself from several genres. Not to say I will not read it exclusively, but just that I will not seek those genres actively.
My preference for writing styles had changes over time as well. I used to be able to understand and read archaic writing styles as I had the leisure and patience to work through it indefinitely (AKA childhood) but as I grew older, and my priorities changes, ease of understanding (AKA modern writing) became the writing style I gravitate towards.
At one stage of time (teenage times) I devoured Regency Romances (I still do, their grammar and particular usage of words still tickle my fancy). At another stage, I rabidly followed Arthurian tales and their spin-offs.
Novels and books are not only my preferences now. I have also discovered the realm of Mangas and Anime (Japanese, then Korean and Chinese).
So, long story short, this will be the corner where I share what I am currently reading, or had recently read. I will provide links where ever I am able.
And as always, if it is a fan translation or an amateur work, please support author and translator as they are, more often than not, paid little to nothing unless their work is serialized and picked up commercially.
