Hi, my name is Seirra (yes that's the correct spelling!) but occasionally I also go by CC Graziano. I'm twenty-two and I reside in the wonderful state of Pennsylvania in a town far less interesting than that of the places I read about in books. I'm the sole blog manager on Dear, Restless Reader and I started blogging in July of 2012 but didn't become active until October of 2012. This site began as a place to share my opinions on novels I really enjoyed and every once in awhile the ones I didn't. I never really knew the impact my reviews would have, or about the book-reviewing community, and that I'd actually have any readers. How amazed I was to discover this wonderful online existence. It's been the most rewarding experience and I hope to keep doing what I'm doing.
I'm a proud Avon Addict/Alumni, and I'm also a super reader for Harper Voyager. My Avon reviews can be found on AvonRomance. I've also contributed reviews & articles on Pure Textuality, and The Mortal Institute!
I'm a life-long book reader. I can't remember a time when I wasn't reading, I started at a young age. As a teenager I was wickedly obsessed with R.L. Stine's Fear Street series, then moved on to devour Lois Duncan's suspenseful novels. I could never just stick to one genre so here on my blog I review them all. Some of my favorites are YA/adult: urban fantasy, dystopia, PNR, and any stories with romance in them. I also have an appreciation for illustrated works so I love reviewing comics, manga, and middle-grade.
Aside from bookish stuff I enjoy traveling when I can get off work. Frequently I volunteer to work convention events for television series and other entertainment related affairs. I just loved being involved in all aspects of amusement. I speak a little French but understand it more than articulation. I have two siblings, we're triplets. I'm grateful they're really cool. I have an adorable rebel of a cat named Chloe; she is a very good listener and not much of a talker but big on meowing. She's also my mobile alarm clock. Reading and writing have always been a big part of my life so it seem only natural to start a blog and discuss the things I'm most passionate about - which is books! I try to read every day though I don't always have the time - life likes to intrude on that dream. My goal is to help others spark their reading passion. This blog is my creative outlet and I hope people can relate to my own opinions as well as find a good book to read and share it with family and friends. If you've read this far I thank you for your time in getting to know me a little and hope you share my blog with others who are just as restless of a reader as I am. - Seirra
