Who is Emma?

Emma lives in New England. She is a scientist that works in the field of psychiatry, or at least that is what she role plays during the day. She started this book blog for two reasons. First, she loves to read and recently discovered that writing reviews helps her to remember which books she loved most of all. Second, she wants to get free copies of books from publishers. This blog seemed like the most direct path to achieving that goal. The reviews on this website are capped at two-hundred and fifty words. Consequently, there are no (lengthy) plot synopses. A lengthy synopsis rather defeats the purpose after all. The books reviewed here mostly fall under the umbrella of modern literary fiction, though the occasional oldie might sneak its way in.
