I'm a young twenties musician with an unhealthy book and shoe habit.  They need to make a shoe/book rehab if only for the sake of my poor, poor wallet.  I grew up on C.S. Lewis, Madeline L'Engle, Susan Cooper, Tamora Pierce, and Robin McKinley among many, many, many others and apparently I never grew out of that reading habit.  I read everything (Ok I'm lying.  I avoid nonfiction like the plague.  It's just so...depressing), but I still primarily stick to my beloved YA fantasy novels. 

My blog is a place for me to procrastinate instead of practicing work on what I love (second) most.   When I'm not blogging (so most of the time) I am usually manically scraping reeds and practicing, so this is a nice break from the craziness of music!  I'm also a beta on  fictionpress and ff.net, so feel free to send things my way, I'm always looking for new things to read.

I love talking to you guys, so I always respond to comments.  Be sure to check back!  Feel free to contact me in the comments or at hitchhikerbooks@gmail.com
