Edit profile. Okay. So, what do you need to know about me?

My name is Cira, which is pronounced with a K = Kira. Even people who know me seem to forget sometimes.

I read a lot. And fast. I like stories that include romance, a little humour, a dash of angst, and a happy end. I love stories with a good plot, be that a mystery or a developing relationship or a Quest for the Good to Triumph over Evil. I adore complex characters, and if there is a clear development of those characters I'm bound to be swooning with delight. The God Eaters by Jumping Jack Flash/Jesse Hajicek is a wonderful example of all that.

I don't often review. I'm a pretty picky reader and six years of studying literature have left me with a literary critic on my left shoulder who won't shut up. Literary critic is a horned beast and rarely nice.

Sometimes, I write. I don't get a lot done, though, because I'm blessed with an overactive imagination and a muse suffering from ADHS.

I'm not a native speaker of English.

I' working towards my PhD.

For the time being, this account is for me to keep track of stories and authors.

A River in Egypt by frenchmartini reviews
Denial is an awkward obstacle to come across, as Jonty McPhee found out recently. Fortunately, fantastic and flamboyant Gareth Pedder finds all the drama quite amusing. Given the way he’s dressed, that’s to be expected! Slash.

Just Drive the Car by Jumping Jack Flash reviews
Italian gangsters, a gorgeous car, a little bit of gunplay, and maybe something like love. T for language and violence; pretend I have also added the 'family' and 'friendship' genres; oh yeah, and I should also say 'slash' and 'mafia' for keyword-findery.

Convenient by orbicland reviews
After Sam's boyfriend gets shot, it should be obvious what he's supposed to do. Instead he reads a lot and can't seem to stop running into the cute paramedic from the accident site.
