My name is Samantha Bonge, though I go by Sam usually. I am a Davidson College student and Posse scholar, originally from Miami, Florida. I have one sibling, a younger sister named Alexa, who has Down Syndrome. I plan on majoring in Neuroscience with a minor in English, on the pre-med track. My goal is to become a pediatric neurologist, as well as a published author.
I have been working on this book blog since I was 15 years old, buts its fallen by the wayside in the last year or two, with an unintentional hiatus in there as well. This is my effort to revamp this blog. On this blog, we can expect book reviews, discussions, speculations about TV shows and movies, comic book talk, school talk, and commiseration about writing.
Feel free to send me any thoughts, ideas, or suggestions!

My hobbies include watching Netflix, reading, playing video games, sketching, and I am trying to pick up knitting.
I’ve also run a book blog for the past several years at rivermoosebooks.wordpress.com. I chose to start a book blog because I love reading, but not many of my friends read the same books, or at the same speed, that I did, so I couldn’t really talk to anyone but my best friend about books.
I’ve loved reading since the second grade, when I first read the Harry Potter books, primarily because the librarian insisted they would be too difficult for me, and I very stubbornly wanted to prove that I could, even though I was at a first grade reading level at best back then. Some of my favorite books are: Crush by Richard Siken, the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling, Redshirts by John Scalzi, Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Prachett, The Martian by Andy Weir, Because You’ll Never Meet Me by Leah Thomas, and The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat by Oliver Sacks.
