About Me!

Hello all!

This is a blog where I show, review, and gush about books that I’ve recently read!  I read nearly everything that is given to me, no matter the genre or medium.

Currently, I work in Boston as a student worker at the Circulation and Reference Desk at my college.  I recently came back to the US after working in France as an English teaching assistant for high school students.  Prior to that, I graduated with a degree in English and French Culture, with two minors in Gender, Sexuality, Women’s Studies and Shakespeare Studies, as well as completed coursework in English Education.

It’s my goal to be a reference librarian at an academic library, and I’d love for my subjects to include English, French, Shakespeare, and YA Literature.  To prep for that, I’m getting a dual degree in Library Science and Children’s Literature, and hoping to go to school for a Shakespeare degree!  I’ve already held a few jobs and volunteer positions in a library, and after experiencing that, I know that I want to be the person to help make a difference in as many people’s lives as possible.  Libraries are a welcoming place for everybody, and I want my future library’s book choices to reflect that.

While I basically love reading anything and everything, I do have some favorite authors and subjects/genres!  Those would be: Shakespeare (his works or analyses of his works), Stephen King, feminism, veganism, young adult literature, and children’s literature.

With respect to my reviews, I strive to review books for all ages, and books written by as many different backgrounds as I can.  Sometimes, I try to read French novels so I can keep building my vocabulary!  But, ultimately, I wish to be more inclusive and intersectional, and this is the way I feel I can do it best.
