Me & My Blog

First off: Thanks for stopping by!

A bit about me: Hey! My name’s Melanie, and I live in the wonderful state of Florida. I’m a teen and right now, I’m enjoying life, as well as figuring out where I fit in this crazy world. I’m an only child. I live with my parents. While we certainly have our not-so-nice moments, for the most part we got along pretty well. I’ve got a dog, Fritz, who’s a schnauzer mix, and he’s always full of it. I also, after years of begging, have a horse. His name’s Ranger. I’d have to say he’s pretty awesome but then, I’m biased. I really enjoy doing stuff like writing, playing the piano, photography, knitting, anything outdoors, and of course, reading.

A bit about the blog: Melanie’s Musings is a way for me to talk mostly about the books I’ve been reading, although you’ll probably get the occasional blurb of randomness. I definitely have friends who enjoy reading, but I’m pretty sure none of them enjoy it as much as I do. Book discussions are pretty rare among us, so I started this blog to be able to share my opinion. I’m an opinionated person, so it shouldn’t be too hard!

Why I read: I guess everyone reads for different reasons. I personally read mainly for the fun of it! With fiction, I love getting immersed into a world that only exists in the mind. I like reading non-fiction as well because I usually am amazed that this actually happened and someone actually experienced this. To be truthful, reading’s probably a form of escapism for me as well. Sometimes it’s nice to get away, you know?

How long I’ve been around: I started this blog on May 1st because, well it was the perfect day! Spring was in full swing, and summer was just around the bend. The idea had been rolling around in my head for a while, and after asking a few questions, I decided that I’d like to blog. So here I am!

Anything else? If you’d like to know about something I didn’t mention, email me! My address is:
