About Me

I’m Ryan.  I’m a nineteen year old college student who enjoys reading, writing, and music.  I am a sophomore at Hood College, majoring in Biochemistry with a concentration on Pre-Med.  I plan on attending Johns Hopkins University for medical school.  I’m a big family person and a huge animal lover.  I’m also incredibly liberal and support any and all forms of human equality and civil rights.

Young Adult fiction is my favorite genre, but I occasionally read some adult books.  I’ll pretty much read anything YA, and I don’t let stereotypes or the fact that I’m a dude stop me from reading a good book.  Lately, I’ve been reading mostly paranormal romance and urban fantasy, but my literary roots are in high fantasy.  

I’m also a big music fan.  I love all types of rock music, from power pop to pop punk to alternative to metal.  To me it’s all good music.  I really enjoy bands like Pierce the Veil and Sleeping with Sirens, but my favorite band is The Used, who inspired the name of my blog.  The title’s not as clever now that you know that I “stole” it, is it?  I also sing, scream, and play guitar.

My love of music and reading ultimately transformed into a love of writing, both stories and songs,  and I enjoy sharing my lyrics, so you might see those around sometimes.

I started Taste of Ink Reviews to share my interests with the internet.

I’m pretty chill, so if you have questions or want to talk, you can tweet or email me at:
