Hi! I’m glad you’ve made it.

My name is Wisdom Zelda, and I was born in 2005. My dream is to be an author. This has been one of my goals ever since I read my first chapter book. As I closed it, I realized that whole new worlds could be opened to me. Since then, I have read around 600 books. I just can’t stop! I read in the morning, I read during math, I read after lunch, I read after piano practice, and I read in the evening, and whenever else I can.

But I have realized that there are many out there who haven’t been introduced to the world of good books. Maybe you’re one of these people. Maybe you’re not. In any case, I am here to guide you as you travel through your bookshelf.

Books can take you many places; I like to think of each book as a journey. Some books are like a walk in the park: nice, pleasant, and somewhat bland. But a walk in the park is nothing compared to touring a grand French castle, walking around a Mediterranean town at sunset, hiking to the top of a mountain, or a thousand other places you might explore. Those are the books that I want to introduce to you—books that will bring you to places so enchanting you’ll never want to stop reading.

So let’s get to business. On the first Tuesday of every month, I post a new book review. Two weeks later, I post a short summary of my top three books of the month. If you follow me (click the Follow button in the bottom right hand corner of the screen, and don’t forget to confirm when you get the email), you get reviews delivered right to your inbox. That way, you can discover how delightful old, musty books can be and how exciting the newer ones can get. I’ll steer you away from silly books with shallow characters and obvious endings.

In each book review there’s a photograph. The photographs are property of my eldest sibling, who, after reading my reviews, uses impressive photography skills to portray the review with an image. Also, the sketches in the “Top Three Books” posts are by me, Wisdom Zelda.

At the end of each review there is the age group and genre that corresponds to the book in question (i.e. Middle school science fiction, ages 10-12), which helps you decide what audience the book is meant for.

Go ahead and discover your love for books.

Wisdom Zelda
