Hello! My name is Sophie Weisenfeld and I’m from Long Island, New York. I’m creating this blog for my English 11 class. I have never created my own blog before so this is very exciting for me! Some of my interests include spending time with family and friends as well as reading whenever I can. I also love to spend time with my two dogs, Luke and Lola. My favorite book of all time would have to be Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, which I read for my AP Literature class, my favorite class in high school. I like all types of literature, and often try to branch out and read different genres. Recently, I’ve been reading more mystery novels which are very thrilling (I just finished The Secret History by Donna Tarte). I am hoping to enjoy the books we read in class, as I don’t typically read gothic literature. From this class, I hope to improve my writing style as well as become a better reader. I aspire to expand my horizons with the different books we are reading in class and can’t wait to explore gothic and horror and their influence in our culture. I am excited for the many discussions in the classroom as well as the viewing of various films.
My dog Lola!
