Welcome to Scribbles & Wanderlust!
I’m Laura, and I’d like to say I’m a professional fangirl — but I’m sure my actual professional titles (associate agent, librarian, blogger) reflect “fangirl” just fine. Whenever I’m not reading for work or the blog, I’m drinking tea and watching British television dramas with my fluffy black cat Rossetti, or planning my next big trip to somewhere in the country or abroad in Europe! London is my dream city, Vienna the most gorgeous buildings, and Prague the delicious food. If we could combine them together, I just might die happy.
There are a variety of books, authors, and genres I read and review. My absolute favorite literature is 19th-century British literature, particularly the Gothic authors (Brontës, Dickens, Collins) and Romantic poets (Byron, Keats). But they’re all dead and not coming out with anything new — so if you like that sort of literature, pull up a chair and let’s chat! Be forewarned: Jane Eyre is my homegirl and I will defend her to death.
In adult fiction, I adore women’s fiction, chick lit, historical fiction, and fantasy. Some of my favorite authors include Kate Morton, Jodi Picoult, Erin Morgenstern, Juliet Marillier, Diane Setterfield, Kate Alcott, Tana French, Deborah Harkness, Paula Brackston, Jessica Brockmole, and Sophie Kinsella.
Next in line is YA contemporary, historical fiction, and fantasy, including Harry Potter (MG, yes, but it must be stated!), Shadowfell trilogy by Juliet Marillier, Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy by Laini Taylor, and authors such as Rainbow Rowell, Gayle Forman, Stephanie Perkins, Emery Lord, Morgan Matson, Sarah Dessen, Rachel Hartman, Anne Blankman, Stacey Lee, and William Ritter.
Apart from reviews, I participate in the Top Ten Tuesday weekly meme whenever possible, update several reading challenges, and send out monthly Advance Excitement posts regarding upcoming publications I’ll review. And, since this little agent is always so stinkin’ proud of her clients, I will announce recent deals on the blog as well.
