My name is Melody, and I like words.
I received my bachelor’s in English and linguistics at Georgetown University, and I’m currently pursuing my master’s in writing at the Johns Hopkins University.
In my spare time, I train to compete as a figure skater and dote on my unruly black Lab and unusually friendly cat.
I really like books.
This blog began as an outlet for my book reviews in 2009. I’m particularly interested in local literature, authors, bookstores, and events about or from the Washington, D.C., area. The link between identity and geography in literature fascinates me.
In addition, I write about travel, writing, cooking, and, of course, my pets.
