Welcome to my blog. My name is Phillip Marchese. I’m from Roseville, Michigan, and I’m a freshman in the School of Literature, Science, and the Arts at the University of Michigan. I plan on majoring in some sort of science, possibly in biology. I also plan on taking a pre-med path. In my English class, I was asked to create a blog about my style of literature and, in the future, give my opinions and insight on some of it. I am taking the course not only because it is required but also because I really enjoy and appreciate being able to express myself freely in writing without any restrictions and limitations on what I’m allowed to say. I love reading. Historical fiction and some science fictionand fantasy novels are my favorite genres. My favorite books are about things that could only happen in your imagination. Also, when historical events/people are combined with a fictitious cast of characters and events. Some of my favorite books are the Harry Potter Series, The Inheritance Series, The Pillars of the Earth, The Poisonwood Bible, Angels and Demons, and Burnt Shadows.
During this course, I hope to broaden my view and understanding of literature and discover more about what an author is trying to convey through his/her writing and also in what ways are they conveying this message.
