About Me

My name is Brianna and I love books and discussions that are inspired by books. In college I was an Animal Science major, but found that I needed an outlet for creativity. I started studying literature to bring balance to my life. After college I again found myself immersed in science and needing balance back in my life so I started The Book Bug Reviews.

A few months into blogging I joined two different reading groups: The Classics Club and Emma Watson’s book club, Our Shared Shelf. Out of these two groups I have discovered my love of classics and feminist literature. I have a passion for growing in my understanding of how literature contributes to our everyday lives and hearing different perspectives from other people. Many of my posts revolve around these genres, but I dabble in children’s, science fiction, dystopian, and fantasy literature.

I live with my two roommates, three cats, two dogs, kitten, bearded dragon and fish. I’m an avid animal lover and vegetarian (hence the Animal Science degree and numerous pets). Here at the animal menagerie, when I’m not perusing a novel and fangirling about it on my blog, I’m training my black lab, Lola, to be a service dog and bottle feeding our Ragdoll kitten, JoJo. Life in the menagerie is never dull and I’m so glad you’ve chosen to come along for the ride.

Thanks for joining the discussion and I look forward to hearing from you.
