I’m a librarian who recently moved to Atlanta from Texas with my husband Matthew and Schipperke dog Bomber.
I started this blog as a requirement during my children’s literature class in grad school but decided that I was going to keep it going because I enjoy writing about things I love. I typically read literary fiction, YA, biographies, and sometimes history. I occasionally read fantasy and I have a couple of graphic novels that I keep up with thanks to my friend Yaika (check out her blog here).
I have my Masters in Library Science but I also have a minor in Film Studies from my undergraduate degree so I also really enjoy watching and writing about films.
The rest of my free time is taken up lifting weights. My husband is a bodybuilder but I just workout to stay healthy and attempt to look good (really just to eat more food though, let’s be honest). I practice flexible dieting and enjoy trying new restaurants. My husband and I are both old souls and enjoy the idea of pre-war coffee shops – just hanging out all day drinking coffee, reading, writing, and discussing philosophy.
Some of my favorite books include:
Everything is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer
All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
Some of my favorite films include:
Tree of Life, Fight Club, Singing in the Rain, The Fall, The Royal Tenenbaums, Oldboy (the original Korean, really just any Korean action movie) and many, many others. I enjoy basically every movie directed by the Coen brothers or Wes Anderson because at heart, I truly am a hipster.
I’m not sure how you found my blog but thanks for checking it out!
