Welcome to Read, Think, Ponder!
CW (cw @ readthinkponder)
CW is short for a name that she had to learn to love — and now that she does, she wouldn’t give it up for the world. She blogs and writes book reviews in the hopes that she doesn’t forget how to write critically, now that the longest things she writes – other than reviews – are emails at work, and does all the illustrations for Read, Think, Ponder, lest she forgets how to do that too.
Once upon a time, CW majored in Psychology and Sociology at university. She loved it; perhaps it was the best years of her life. She would give almost anything to rewind time just to experience university again, though, maybe she would study Law as well.
Some of her favourite genres include dystopia, young adult, fantasy, and science-fiction, whilst her interest in non-fiction and academia lie in gender studies, ethnic studies, as well as studies on ideology and power. Personal favourites include Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami, The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro, Maybe in Another Life by Taylor Jenkins Reid, and Frankenstein by Mary Shelley – just to name a few.
Like all avid readers, CW is on an endless search for the next good book. Critically analyzing books with a sociological lens, engaging with social commentary located in books and praxis, and finding refreshing reads that do not utilize age-old cliches and tropes are not only an intellectual exercise for her, but it’s a few of her favourite things. When she isn’t reading, you may find her playing video games, fitness, painting, baking, and engaging in constructive, positive discussions about social issues. She’s also a passionate feminist who follows intersectional theory, and is an INFJ.
CW wishes you happy reading, and hopes that you remember that you are never powerless.
