Hi, welcome to my blog! My name is Akilah, and I’m a community college English professor who loves to read and watch TV and movies. I blog about all of those things and sometimes my adventures out and about in the Los Angeles area as well as my adventures with my daughter. I also sometimes blog about whatever else I want because it’s my blog, and that’s what blogs are for.

Why “The Englishist”? Because one day my friend kept talking about how she knows science things because she’s a scientist, and I was like, “Yeah, well, I know about reading and writing things because I’m an Englishist.” So here we are.

Want to email me? I can be reached at theenglishist[at]gmail.com.

  1. I’m in the middle of this one and already a little suspicious of the romance! I’ve wanted to love this so bad, so I hope that element doesn’t ruin it for me. Thanks for the link love, though, to my post on instalove! I was going to ask if you had rebranded your site, but I then realized you have two! I’ll be following this one now!
