About Me

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Speculating on SpecFic. This is a book blog dedicated to works of Speculative Fiction – science fiction, fantasy, horror, mythology, etc.

My name is Shaheen, and I am a 24 year old PhD student, studying Astronomy and Astrophysics in Australia.

I can’t remember ever not wanting to read. Books are a lovely way to wind down at the end of the day, and I love being introduced to new authors and books.

I have always read a lot of fantasy, both adult and young adult, and these days I read quite a bit of paranormal and dystopian young adult novels too.

Some of my favourites are:

  • The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien
  • The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini
  • All the books in the Shannara universe by Terry Brooks
  • The Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind
  • The Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling
  • The Broken Well Trilogy by Sam Bowring
  • Divergent by Veronica Roth
  • The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare
  • All the works of Brandon Sanderson, including the Mistborn series and The Way of Kings.
  • Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
