About Me

Hello all! Welcome to Characterized.

[matilda thorne]
I am Matilda Thorne. Yes, Matilda like the book by Roald Dahl. We were both born the same year, so I think it's somewhat fitting.

I am 17 years old going on 18, and will be starting college as a freshman in the fall of 2015. I am from New York City. Woot woot! Which means you can probably find me curled up in a corner with a book at your local Starbucks, or your local mom & pop cafe // bakery.

If having a book review blog, didn't clue you in on the fact -- then you should know that I am an avid reader, book enthusiast, "prescriber" of all things readable. I am in training to become a Professional Release Date attacker, which definitely explains my frequent rants about release dates of books that I am eagerly anticipating.

I actually took a break from book blogging sometime in June last year, but I recently came back. I loved reviewing books I'd read so much that I couldn't give it up. (And I plan to be better than ever.) 

I range from young adult to new adult fiction. I don't have any specific objections when it comes to fiction. I do not, however, read erotica, anything of religious eer, or non-fiction.

For more information on what both Mat and I read you can visit our Review Policy page.

Don't ever feel too shy to drop a comment below or on one of my posts. I love to hear from you guys!
