Two years short of a decade ago, I created Lilolia to share my reading and writing journey with like minded people. I wanted to improve my writing and I knew this meant I’d have to get to know the worlds of literature and publishing better and be much more intentional about my personal reading.
“Read, read, read. Read everything — trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You’ll absorb it. Then write. If it’s good, you’ll find out. If it’s not, throw it out of the window.” ― William Faulkner
This blog is about reading, books, and the people who write them. You’ll find some reviews of the books I read, reading lists, book and writer features, some quotes, and info about the major literature prizes. All is intended to inspire and fuel your reading journey whether you’re reading purely for pleasure or reading with purpose.
“If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.” ― Haruki Murakami,
