About

This blog features the thoughts and ramblings of Leslie, who is currently an undergraduate student at the University of Montevallo, studying Sociology and English with concentrations in East Asian studies.  She has aspirations of being a field working ethnographer, a university professor, and opening her own publishing house and a nonprofit writing consultation center.

The title and header of this blog is in reference to Zilpha Keatley Snyder’s The Egypt Game, and the quote “Nobody knew for sure what the A-Z meant. Perhaps it referred to the fact that all sorts of strange things—everything from A to Z—were sold in the store.” It stands as a reminder that imagination creates everything worth having, and that sometimes the greatest experiences come from what seems like nothing.

Many of the posts on this blog are book reviews, and ARCs are always accepted! Other post series include Series Wrap-ups, which are an overviewing review of an entire series, Agonies and Annoyances, which are editorials on different aspects of literature that Leslie feels should be improved, and of an English Major, which are various scribbles and confessions of a liberal arts student who spends too much time barefoot and not nearly enough time reading postmodern literature.
