Ms Kanta

Voracious reader and DPhil candidate blogs about books and scholarly life.

Words of welcome

People who know me in real life were probably expecting it already. Yes, Kanta has made a blog about books, and perhaps it’s a bit overdue.

I am a reader, an insatiable reader, and I have been ever since I learned to read when I was nearly three years old. As a kid, the combined efforts of my parents and the city library only barely managed to keep up with my reading – I got into some serious trouble for asking whether I could go to the library again when I had just been given five books the other day, but yes, I had finished them…

And here I am, twenty-three years old, with a master’s degree in Literary Studies. How unexpected.

I first started using Twitter in 2011, to tweet about every book I read under the name @MsKanta. Yes, every single book. It sometimes happens that I tweet about a different book every day for a week in a row.

It was this summer that, finally, I thought I should put in some serious effort to become a book reviewer. I mean, I have read so much, I have an opinion about every book I read, and my degree has taught me to write about books pretty thoroughly, so why shouldn’t I put this to good use?

This blog, then, will be a collection of reviews, alongside updates of my research, which of course is also about books.
