Literature has the power to take you miles away, on a never-ending journey where you may meet new friends, enemies, fall in love over and over again, go on incredible ventures or learn magic. But it also has the ability to bring people together through discussion, shared experiences, and learning.
Keep reading. It’s one of the most marvelous adventures that anyone can have.
― Lloyd Alexander
The Literary Avenue is a tale-lined avenue, found inside every one of us, filled with boutiques and libraries with never-ending shelves and doors leading to million other worlds and dimensions. It is an avenue where you can meet new friends and broaden your knowledge.
And that is why I am here – to serve and guide all you book lovers living in your dreams, becoming daring heroines or heroes and falling for some dashing stranger.
And who am I?
My name is Ella and I will be your guide and fellow dreamer on The Literary Avenue. In this world I am an English and Spanish major, translator and hopefully future editor. The Literary Avenue is the result of me, my passions and a lifetime of being stuck in the books and trying to find someone to discuss them with. My aim is to share my (and also your, my dear reader) love of reading and discovering, and inspire new adventures into this enchanting lands. I am very passionate about the books I read (sometimes to a worrying degree), and want to share my thoughts and feelings about what I read with others.
She’d become an English major for the purest and dullest of reasons: because she loved to read.”
― Jeffrey Eugenides, The Marriage Plot
And who am I in other worlds where you might meet me, you may be asking?
I am a nerdy Ravenclaw, a Dauntless initiate, a swimmer from District 4, a brooding Noldo, a House Stark loyalist, a dreamer from the Night Court….
I am anything I wish to be, just like you my dear reader.
You know that feeling (…) when you are reading a book, and you know that it is going to be a tragedy; you can feel the cold and darkness coming, see the net drawing tight around the characters who live and breathe on the pages. But you are tied to the story as if being dragged behind a carriage and you cannot let go or turn the course aside. ― Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Princess
Your loving guide and companion on this journey, Ella
