About Me

Welcome to The Darcy Review!

My name is Lorelei, and I'll be your host this evening. 

I started this blog because I love to read, and I love to talk to people about what I'm reading.

I can usually be found hiding in the YA section of my library, riding my bicycle around town, or searching for the castle that lies east of the sun and west of the moon, all while drinking copious amounts of coffee.

I have had my share of fun (nanny-ing) and not-so-fun (horse poo shoveling) jobs. I'm a few classes away from a Harvard degree in What They Told Me I Must Learn. I've been all around the country and someday I will go all around the world, hopefully with a limitless credit card since I'm not fond of camping.

I am on a never-ending quest to find a grown-up friendly bounce house.
