Hello and welcome to Ace of Bens! My name is Ben Ace and I run this blog.
As a general introduction, I’ll start by saying I’m an undergrad student working towards a B.A. in Spanish with minors in English and digital media technologies. One day I hope to use that to become a literary or journalistic translator. Aside from academics, I’m the vice president of my university’s College Democrats and PRIDE, which is the LGBTQ+ advocacy group on campus.
About The Blog
Here on Ace Of Bens, you’ll find book reviews, general bookish talk, advocacy pieces on anything from mental health to queer rights, and sometimes opinion pieces on similar subjects. I want to stress that the main focus here is discussing books, but since this is ultimately my personal blog, I want to leave it open to other topics once in a while, hence the tagline, “Home of Ace Book Reviews and Ben’s Thoughts.”
So what kind of books do I talk about? Well, just about no genre is off-limits, but I do focus in Young Adult books and sometimes step into the Middle Grade and New Adult worlds. Most of the books I talk about here are fiction, but I have been trying to read more non-fiction as well and have started reviewing them as well.
I post three times a week: A review every Tuesday, and posts in any other category every Sunday and Thursday.
Thanks for stopping by!
