About Adrianna
MY GROUPS (AND COMMUNITY):

The following information was taken from the official Cafe Libri Website.
Cafe Libri (Yahoo Reading Discussion Group) is the original Cafe Libri creation. It is a Yahoo Group for all types of people. It is an informal online group that discusses a variety of subjects and is a great place to meet new friends. Discussion is always open-ended, and members are encouraged to take initiative in leading discussion topics.
 
Cafe Libri (Reading Discussions and Book Reviews on Goodreads) is a secondary reading group for all types of people. It was created on Monday, September 14, 2009 by a_soft_flower (Serena/Adrianna) to serve as an alternate group for Cafe Libri Yahoomembers who are also members on this site. Goodreads allows members to discuss and write reviews on books and reading materials discussed at Cafe Libri Yahoo. Book discussions still continue primarily on Yahoo, but the Goodreads group allows us to advertise the original Cafe Libri to additional book lovers from around the world.
 
Cafe Libri (Reading Reviews and Book Reviews on Lunch) is another extension of the original Cafe Libri reading discussion group. It was created on Friday, March 12, 2010 by Adrianna. It serves as an alternative site where members can post book reviews, similar to Cafe Libri Goodreads, but with more review freedoms. Members can post any type of reading related review at Cafe Libri Lunch (not limited solely to book reviews--all genres and styles are encouraged such as manga, graphic novels, comic books, autobiographies, biographies, fiction, cookbooks, essays, poetry, short stories, oral stories, nonfiction, etc.). Some nontraditional examples include e-readers, book illustrations, and author reviews (to name a few). A user's imagination is the limit.
 
Cafe Libri (Reading Discussions and Book Reviews on Shelfari) is the final creation of the original Cafe Libri reading discussion group. It was created on Thursday, June 17, 2010 by Adrianna to serve as an alternate group for Cafe Libri Yahoo members who are also members on this site. Shelfari allows members to discuss and write reviews on books and reading materials discussed at Cafe Libri Yahoo in a more visual manner than Cafe Libri Goodreads. Book discussions still continue primarily on Yahoo, but the Shelfari group allows us to advertise the original Cafe Libri to additional book lovers from around the world.
 
ABOUT ME:
 
I have a BA in English with a creative writing emphasis and a BA in History with a Latin American emphasis. In 2010, I graduated from my MA in English program, emphasis on Chicana Literature. My thesis is titled: "Multiple Consciousness and Chicana Falsa: Ripping Heads off Mexican-American Barbie Dolls."
 
I'm a critical thinker with a variety of tastes. I'm also an eclectic individual who tries anything at least once. When I finally find something I like, I usually don't stray from that path.

REVIEWER INFORMATION:
 
I review at a couple of different sites. Lunch is my place to review anything and everything under the sun, which ranges from television shows, music, books, and movies. I review books at two additional sites: Goodreads and Shelfari. Friends are welcome to add me as a buddy at either.

I recently joined Epinions and Yelp, and I will cross-post many of my reviews to both sites as applicable. My profile at epinions is http://www0.epinions.com/user-adriannas/show_~View_Profile. My profile at Yelp is http://adriannas.yelp.com.

My latest reviewing endeavor is to cross-list my reviews on Amazon. Please remember that it takes 48 hours for reviews to list on Amazon, so it will take time before I am able to post everything live. Here's my profile for friends who want to connect with me on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/pdp/profile/A1JB6JYAOVT2DA/ref=cm_cr_thx_pdp

I've joined Yahoo's Contributor Network site where I hope to post reviews and other publications in the near future: http://contributor.yahoo.com/user/1073871/adrianna.html
