Hi, I’m a twenty-three year old girl, living in London at the moment. I’m one of those annoying people, who’s pragmatic, quick-tempered (sometimes, I think I need anger management therapy!), and sarcasm is one of the primary services I offer. I guess it makes sense, then, that I work in technology, and think in if statements and for loops, and convery my emotions using emoticons. :)

I promise, that’s the last of the geek-speak on this page! I like reading, music (I’m a rock’n’roll girl), writing, photography, art, chocolate, cheesecake, the spring rain, beaches, swimming, water sports, Apple, Disney, video games, game consoles, and football (the ‘English’ kind, not the ‘American’ kind). On the other hand, I don’t like hypocrisy, cold rainy winter mornings, sun-burns, politics, hip-hop, boy bands, and inefficiency.

I’m a dreamer, an idealist, and keep drifting away imagining things in an alternate reality. Maybe that’s why I really love reading – that it offers me that alternate reality, and allows my imagination to run away. Sometimes, it’s an escape from the mundane dullness of daily life. Sometimes, it’s about losing myself in a fantasy world to see what life can be. And sometimes, it’s just about kicking back, listening to some Tchaikovsky, and chilling out.

So, that’s me, in a nutshell. And, hopefully, as you browse around, you’ll get to know me a little bit better. Do you really want to know me? Hmm… that’s debatable. :)

I am happy to review books for publishers and authors. Romance, young adult books, and poetry aren’t my forte, so I’d be reluctant to accept these. Other than that, I’m pretty easy going with what I read, and I review everything I read! So, please feel free to contact me at uncertainprinciples [at] gmail [dot] com, and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

If you have any questions, just give me a shout. And please, please do comment!

Thanks for stopping by,

  1. Hello you!

    Came here after you left a comment on my blog, and I’m so glad to find another 23-year-old girl who blogs about reading! We seem to have quite a number of things in common, except that I’m currently about half a globe away from you!

    I think I’ll enjoy your blog very much, and I’ll definitely be coming here to check things out!

    • Hey, I’m sorry, but I forgot that I was signed in onto WordPress that links to another blog of mine! So anyway, this one links back to my book blog. Cheers!

      • Thanks for stopping by! I’ve never been into Malaysian politics, but now I’m curious :)

        Would be lovely to see you around :)

  2. I also work in IT and tend to think in IF’s and sometimes even feel like my brain gets way too deep inside a set of recursive function calls (geek talk! LOL)

    ooo I see you are going to tackle The Hours next! well hurrah!

  4. Hi, I’m also here as a result of your leaving a comment on my blog. What a wonderful feast of authors I see in your sidebar–I’ll be back! In the meantime, what the heck is a loop? I’m currently reading David Lodge’s “Deaf Silence,” in which he mentions loops. I know it has something to do with a cord that attaches to a sound system, but I can’t figure out what it has to do with his hearing aid. Help!

  5. Yay my excitement at finding a British book blogger! I’m new to this blogging thing but I’ve been feeling a bit disillusioned by most of the blogs I’ve come across as I’ve not actually been familiar with any of the books…I actually know a lot of the books you’ve reviewed which makes a nice change!

    Anyway just thought I’d say hi :)
