About Me

Book critic, reviewer, and literary writer Jaclyn Bauer.

Jaclyn Bauer, book critic and reviewer for Centered on Books.

The power of the words mosaicked together in the pages of literary works is unfathomably moving, centering, and destabilizing all at the same time. These words are worth investing hours, days sometimes months to start, finish and re-read.

A friend once told me that art and book critics must exist to keep the conversation going, to challenge artists, to engage the audience as more than just an audience but as active participants in the work created. As an artist and aspiring creative writer, feedback, criticism, and the sharing of knowledge are the most important things to me. With this website, I hope to help spread knowledge about great books, raise questions about challenging books, and provide others a space to do the same.
