Introducing Reviewer Julianne Leow 
Julianne Leow is a young lady who doesn't mind being called a geeky skater. She's currently pursuing her lower upper-six [A-Levels equivalent] in Penang, Malaysia. Welcome, Julianne!
I had a humble beginning with books, as the first book I read was 'Goldilocks and the three bears'. It was my favourite book and I remember my Mum would read the story to me almost everyday. She was the one who ignited the love of books in me. From the coloured pages of Goldilocks, I progressed to other fairy tales and eventually to novels as I aged with my books.

It was from the introduction to Enid Blyton by my Mum that my passion for books exploded! My first Enid Blyton book was 'The O?Sullivan twins'. I enjoyed the school series immensely and my favourite mystery series was the 'Five Find Outers and their dog'. A story centered around a bunch of brilliant teenage sleuths and their dog. From Enid Blyton, I moved on to Patricia Cornwell and later to RL Stine and Christopher Pike before I discovered Stephen King.

For some time, I read only books from the horror genre but realised that there was more to the book kingdom than horror stories and it was then that I found JRR Tolkien and JK Rowling.

Nowadays, I read books from authors like JK Rowling, JRR Tolkien, Darren Shan, Patricia Cornwell, Stephen King, Douglas Adams, Roald Dahl, Anthony Horowitz and an assortment of other fiction and non-fiction books.

I'm generally more into books that centre on teens or young adults. I turn 19 this year so that should explain the obsession! (Oh yes, for more on *me* personally, *do* visit my blog! :D)
