about me

1206a4af-cc5d-4bf6-b610-1f1954bfc3f0hello and welcome!

I’m Jess, a 23-year-old Chinese-Canadian student who’s in love with reading anything I can get my hands on. Crowing About Books is where all my assorted thoughts about books go, so you can expect reviews, recommendations, and me blurting out whatever’s on my mind. I will read anything, but right now I’m loving everything that’s coming out in YA fantasy; I also regularly go for contemporary, sci-fi, and historical fiction. I’m also trying to branch out into adult fantasy and the occasional romance these days. I’m always excited to spread the word about diverse books. If I’m not reading or deep in my studies, you can catch me drinking entire pots of coffee, skiing, and yearning to travel and explore new places.


5 stars: I loved the book and thought there were nearly no issues / they weren’t enough to interfere with my enjoyment of the book. 4 stars: I really liked reading the book, but I wasn’t completely into it / there were a few minor issues that took away from my enjoyment. 3 stars: This is my default rating and usually means I liked the book but nothing stood out one way or another. I consider 3 stars to be a good rating. 2 stars: I had major issues with the book and didn’t enjoy reading it. 1 star: I very sparingly give one-star ratings. This usually means I hated the book or I had major issues with it that I felt were problematic. cab5star
