About this Blog:
So, here on this blog, I will be posting everything from excerpts of my writing to ranting about how difficult school is. I post nerdy things and study guides too. More than anything though, this blog will be about books, and my very nerdy love of them.
On this blog, we can expect book reviews, bookish discussions, speculations about TV shows and movies, comic book talk, writing tags, school talk, recommendations, and commiseration about writing.
Feel free to send me any thoughts, ideas, or suggestions!
About the Blogger:
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 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 have been working on this book blog since I was 15 years old, buts it fell by the wayside for a year or two. At this time I am revamping this blog and being more intentional about being an active part of the blogging community.
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.
My other hobbies include watching Netflix, reading, playing video games, sketching, and I am trying to pick up knitting.

Behind the Name:
The name RiverMoose is a nickname given to me by one of my best friends, Ana.
The “River” part stems from the fact that not only did I reply nothing but the word “Spoilers” when she asked me anything about Doctor Who when I first made her watch it, but I have massively curly hair. River, if you don’t know, is a character in Doctor Who famous for responding to the doctor’s questions with “spoilers sweetie” and her blonde curls.
The “Moose” part comes from the fact that on Supernatural, Crowley calls Sam Winchester “Moose” and since my name is also Sam, my name is also, by extension Moose.
And thus, I am RiverMoose.
