Hi! I’m Deepa and I write reviews under the name Shameeka Alexis.
I love reading books and basically, I live inside my head. Seriously. Sometimes, I’m so caught up in my own thoughts I forget there are people around me.
I am a Violinist and in my free time, I play the violin.
Some things you need while reviewing a book is patience and a lot of dedication. Every reviewer comes across good and bad books. If I finish a book and decide to give it a low rating, I go back into the book and collect excerpts and quotes which made me give the book that rating. I always justify the reason behind the rating and I think that is very important.
More adjectives to describe me would be: Sarcastic. (Socially) Awkward. Really weird. And crazy.
I am huge fan of Breaking Benjamin, Linkin Park, 30 Seconds to Mars, Black Veil Brides, System of a Down and Three Days Grace (and anything rock or metal).
I love Quantum Mechanics and Physics, in general. I am intrigued by planets and stars, and dedicate at least 15 mins a day towards star gazing.
My (all time) favourite author is Roald Dahl. His books were one of the first books I ever read.
I am a HUGE fan of Garfield. If the cat actually existed, we could have a competition on who is more sarcastic. (Don’t mind me. Like I said, CRAZY.)
