Hi! I’m Sam and I am a proud bibliophile. I grew up reading the likes of Roald Dahl, Enid Blyton, Lemony Snickett, Darren Shan and J. K. Rowling. I read and enjoy all genres, but I especially love works of horror and Gothic. It is a widely known fact that I am unabashedly obsessed with the writings of Mark Z. Danielewski – House of Leaves in particular. I have a sizeable tattoo of a poem from the book on my stomach, and I have convinced many people to purchase and read the novel, all of whom have become almost equally obsessed. I studied English and Contemporary Media at university, before going on to do a Masters in English Literature. Gothic literature has been my main focus throughout both courses, with the works of Poe, Lovecraft and King being a few of my favourite authors.
I am incredibly excited and grateful to be a part of the For Reading Addicts team. Here, I am a blog contributor, I write the monthly newsletter (sign up under the Reading Resources tab!) and I also find you the best bookish Daily Deals from Amazon, which are posted on the For Reading Addicts Facebook page.
