Welcome to Stella Matutina, a book review blog. I'm Memory (not Stella), an eclectic reader with a particular love for speculative fiction. Fantasy is my main squeeze, but you can expect to encounter many different genres 'round these parts. I also read and review science fiction, horror, historical fiction, romance, mysteries, general fiction and nonfiction, and I love me some comics and YA across all genres.
If you're interested in what I have to say, feel free to add me to your friends list. I auto-add back. If you'd prefer to subscribe via RSS, my feed is available here. If you'd like to contact me, I can be reached by e-mail (xicanti AT gmail DOT com) or on Twitter (@xicanti). Be aware that I'm closed to all review requests unless I've reviewed the author favourably in the past.
Please note that I blog from an adult perspective, despite the occasional presence of children's literature. I sometimes swear (but only when I really mean it), and I discuss topics that some young people may not be equipped to handle just yet. Stella Matutina is usually in the PG-range, but not always.
My layout was created by tasha of premade_ljs. I altered her header design to add my blog's title.
