Samantha The Reader is a new blog that is centered around my love of books and reading. This site will be a place where I can share my favorite books, write reviews, and express my thoughts; however, the goal is for it to be so much more than just a book blog. I want to share my writing such as short stories, books, and poetry. There will also be TV and movie reviews along with random thoughts. Reading, writing, and history are my biggest passions. They keep me quite entertained!

I have such a great love for classical writers such as Edgar Allan Poe, Lucy Maud Montgomery, Bram Stoker, The Bronte Sisters, Victor Hugo, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, and many more! Their works will be regularly shared and analyzed. I have developed a true fondness of classical literature over last few years. Readers can find these post in our Time Honored section of the blog.

Books are truly amazing and the blogs I have created are to express those values. I run a history website called The Historical Diaries and the two blogs will often crossover. They will be connected frequently as time goes on. I adore writing fiction and non-fiction. Both writing styles intrigue me and make it very satisfying to be running two websites. The blogging community has proven to be amazing!

2017 proved to be a very difficult and tragic year. My mother unexpectedly died in her sleep at the young age of 47 years old. There will never be a moment where I am okay with this nor a time where I will not miss her with everything in my entire soul. There are no words to express how losing her has been. Nothing will ever be the same from that moment. It has been a little over a year since that day. I am excited to continue writing and improving. Please enjoy this journey with us! ♥

  1. Thank you for following my blog ! I’m glad to meet another classics lover (even though my love tends to weigh heavily on the horror side). Have you done a post on The Count of Monte Cristo yet? That’s my favourite novel of all time!

  2. Everyone is different but I find for myself that reading and writing can be two of the most therapeutic things to do, especially when things are really rough. You have suffered a tremendous, forty-seven is so young. Its good that you have chosen to express yourself here. May peace and joy be yours on this journey.

  3. Hi Samantha,

  5. How you found your way to my out of the way blog site is a mystery. But I am delighted you did, I am impressed with your reading list, my favourites being: the Bronte Sisters. Losing your mum at such a young age is horrible and you have my sympathy but remember there is a lot of her in you and so she will always be close – sounds stupid but it helped when my own mum passed. It still hurts but a little less with every passing year and oddly enough we remember more of the good times we shared as time moves on.

  6. Hello Samantha, glad you stumbled upon my little crazy blog. I do have to say that what you are doing in this blog is quite interesting. I don’t have a Facebook account (I know I’m late to the world wide web party) , and this blog you made it very interesting so I will do what I have called, nobody else, but me have created this phrase- I’ll do my cool stalker moves on your blog-
    Nice meeting you, Stay Frosty.

  7. So sad to hear of your loss, Samantha. It hits close to home for me as I am 47 years old. Given your literary tastes, I reckon I’ll like a lot of what I see here. A few weeks ago, I wrote a poem inspired by, among other things, “The Raven”, an homage to Poe. If you’re interested, you can find it in my post, “Rewarding With a ReBlog” here:
    Thank you for reading.
    Take care, be well, and happy blogging!

  8. I am very sorry about the death of your mother. I hope you find consolation and are able, in time to return to education. I look forward to following your blog. I’ve recently been reading Poe’s stories, including “The Devil in the Belfry”, “The Black Cat” and “The Oval Box”. Kevin
