Hi, I’m Annette and I’m a book-addict.
I love books. I love the feel of them, the weight of them, the smell of them. I read every single page of a book — including endpapers. I read a lot, and I love to write. Until the summer of 2015, I was a Creative Writing Ph.D. student at the University of Southern Mississippi. Now I’m a Ph.D. Second-hand book shops are my candy stores.
I write poetry, some of which has appeared in literary journals. My first full collection, The Knowledge Weapon, came out in 2016, and my chapbook the five parts of love: confabulating sappho was published in 2011 by dancing girl press. Click on the “My Poems” tab above to read some of my work.
This blog is a growing collection of descriptions and comments on books I’ve read, posts on reading and writing in general, and other reading-related stuff. My bibliographic diet is diverse, so there’s a chance you’ll stumble across something you might like to read too. There’s poetry, fiction, non-fiction, even the odd comic book. Enjoy!
P.S. I’m also on Goodreads: http://www.goodreads.com/user/show/11032688-annette-boehm
