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, A Serious Man (basically anything directed by the Coen Brothers), The Fall, The Royal Tenebaums, Old Boy (the original Korean) among many others
I’m not sure how you found my blog but thanks for checking it out!
