About the Reader

I was walking back to my desk from my lunch break reading my book because I just had a few pages left. A coworker said to me, “Are you reading and walking?”
I laughed and said, “Yes! I’m almost finished.”
She replied, “A girl after my own heart, you’re my hero!”
I turned to look at her over my shoulder and said, “Not a hero, I’m just another Belle.”

I’m a girl who dreams of one day having a library like Beast gave Belle.  (Though, right now, I’m just dreaming of having enough bookcases! I do have my own little Chip that stays with my books next to my Beast …I’m a Disney freak, too.)

I read an insane amount, collect books like it’s my job, and write to get the stories out of my head.  A little part of me changes every time I finish a book.  Books leave imprints. Books can haunt, in a good way. The good ones will always stay with you and certain lessons will never leave, either.

Recently, I’ve been rescuing books from thrift shops.  I know some were previously loved but others have just been abandoned. I like to give them a home. My bookshelves are being constantly rearranged to accommodate the new additions. I like to think they’re making new friends with the change of scenery.

I pick my books from many different genres. I’ve been reading a lot of YA recently but I’ve always been prone to reading about something magical.  Fairytales are my ultimate favorite genre and I LOVE reading twists on them.  I’ve also read a few celeb memoirs, some graphic novels, fantasy books, dystopian, historical fiction, and beyond!  New Adult books have been catching my eye, too.  I’ll read pretty much anything. There aren’t a lot of books I come across that I don’t like at least partially. There are a lot of books, however, I’ve stopped reading.  They’re on my perpetual ‘currently reading’ list. Sometimes, I just have to put a book down. I’ll eventually come back to it.
